Amanda Southern and Candra
Hello everyone. Hope that your week is off to a good start :) I have another Guest Designer project for you from Amanda Southern. This is a very different style from the colourful art that we've seen from her so far. Apparently Amanda does vintage with just as much skill. In this piece she's used Candra from my moth collection. Love how she's subtly coloured Candra and added white dots along the wings.
It's too bad that moths aren't appreciated as much as butterflies. They come out at night when their lovely colours and patterns can't be seen in detail by our eyes. I designed this collection of stamps after coming across a book at the public library (unfortunately I don't remember the title). It was full of macro images of different species of moths. I fell in love with the all of the variations of antenae, colours and fluffy texture. Below is a screenshot that I took from a Google Images search "colourful moths". If you're ever looking for some interesting colour combos and patterns check them out!
To capture the black and white version in a set of stamps I used a paintbrush to get the fluffy effect and a fine pen for the details. The set below can be found here on my website...
Hope you enjoyed this post :) All my best to you!
