Ecoline pens on Rice Paper and Canvas

I was so proud to have this canvas shown on Hochanda yesterday during the one day special shows with Lou Withers.  I am sharing a step by step as it was such an easy technique with such a vibrant result.
I started by scribbling some of the Royal Talens Ecoline blue pens directly onto the canvas and gave them a spritz of water to encourage the colours to run.
I then added green pens at the top and bottom and repeated the process.
A few more scribbles onto the wet canvas added further interest.
On a piece of the Chinese Rice Paper, I stamped one of the Rugged Edge stamps by Indigoblu as well as one of the Sound and Light Border stamps (also IndigoBlu).  I scribbled some of the same colour pens that I had used in the background directly onto the stamps to provide the colour.
Once the rice paper was added to the canvas using matt gel medium and sealed, the colours from the background showed through, while the stamping remained clear.
A couple of the Tim Holtz Quote Chips coloured to match, finished the piece.
