Today, I have a card to share for a challenge posted
Pin-Sights Challenge and I would love to apply to do this!
I decided to pair my Essentials by Ellen Mondo Hydrangea
with a sentiment from Mama Elephant to make my card.
I started by stamping the hydrangea six times onto my watercolour paper.
Okay, well, three times -- times two.
I stamped in a colour and then, using my MISTI, I stamped again overtop in versamark
so I could heat emboss them in clear.
I used my Zigs to colour them ink.
For the bottom flowers, I just used one colour (Wine Red) for the petals and used
my water brush to push the colour around.
For the other two flowers, I used a combination of two colours to get the
desired effect and finished colour.
For the yellow, I used Yellow and Light Carmine.
For the peach, I used Orange and Light Carmine.
This was new for me to combine colours like this -- but I'm quite
pleased with how they turned out!
I stamped the sentiment (from Mama Elephant's Smitten)
and trimmed my watercolour panel.
I finished it off with a strip of black cardstock along the side.
Thanks for looking!
