My Creative Classrooom - Rubber Stamping Back to Basics Wk 4 (part ii)

Neither of these two projects for homework were very easy for me - I'm a perfectionist & like to understand what I am doing - if it doesn't work, then I'll do it again & again until someone shows me or I find out for myself what I am doing wrong.  I still cannot quite explain why these were so hard but it took a long time for me to get the hang of blending the colours without pools of water or the resulting blend being the same all over instead of a gradation of blend.

The background to my Watercolour Pencils project was made by misting a repeatedly stamped image using an assortment of Whispers Strokes Markers with the Direct to Rubber Technique.
