World of Chess

Lately I bought the Chess Set from Lost Coast Designs. The first project had to include all six figures from this set, so I made this World of Chess scenery. The chess-pieces are coloured with Zig brush markers. The borders of the chess-board are coloured with Copic markers. Everything else is coloured with Adirondack dye inks: Latte and Mushroom for the fields, Stonewashed and Denim for the sky, Lettuce for the grass.

I submitted this scenery for a forum challenge of my local scrapbook and rubber stamp shop. It also fits the theme of this week at The Three Muses which is Hats and Crowns and Wings and Things.

Voor de ARTspecially beurs had ik bij Lost Coast Designs de Chess Set besteld. Het eerste project moest alle zes schaakstukken bevatten, daarom heb ik deze World of Chess scenery gemaakt. De schaakstukken zijn gekleurd met Zig brush markers. De randen van het schaakbord en de lijnen tussen de velden zijn gekleurd met Copic markers. De rest is gekleurd met Adirondack dye inks: Latte en Mushroom voor de velden, Stonewashed en Denim voor de lucht, en Lettuce voor het gras.

Deze scenery doet mee met wedstrijd 14 van het forum van Joan Gevaert. De scenery past ook heel goed in het Hats and Crowns and Wings and Things thema van deze week bij de The Three Muses.
