PE: Winner at The Challenge!!! (Yay!!)
One Layer Simplicity Challenge Winner!! (double yay!)
Fine day for coloring! 🙂 I stamped this pretty flower from Ellen Hutson Bohemian Garden in Hero Arts Black ink, repeatedly, and using masking. I wanted to do some water-coloring on it, hence the Hero Arts ink instead of my usual Momento Tuxedo. I used Fabriano Aquarelle watercolor paper – fantastic thing, even though I did really light coloring – I could feel it! 🙂
I used distress inks for coloring, choosing inks for a softer palette. I went with Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Mustard Seed (very light coloring with this) for the flowers and Crushed Olive and Mowed Lawn for the leaves (again, very light coloring). For the background of the flowers, I initially went with a light mixture of Pumice Stone and Brushed Corduroy, but thinking that there was no contrast at all, I re-colored it with black.
The sentiment is from Paper Trey Ink Wet Paint 3, which I stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black (yes, I just had to use that ink! :P) Finally added a dashed line around the card using Uniball Signo black gel pen.
Submitting this to a variety of challenges –
