I am back today with another card for a Power Poppy Challenge. The task was to be inspired by Thelonious Monk's Paris 1969 album cover featured on the Power Poppy Blog.
I created the the watery background by inking an acrylic block with Memento Summer Sky and Lulu Lavender. After masking the tulips, I spritzed the block with water and stamped it over the bottom portion of the panel. I then splattered more ink over the top of that. Next I removed the mask and shaded the tulips with a variety of gray Prismacolor pencils. The butterfly was created with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is from Power Poppy's Good Thinking: Renewal.
