Hoping everyone in the path of the big winter storm is staying safe & warm & maybe enjoying a craft day! Not to make you jealous, but somehow we're having 12 hours of Spring before the rain hits again & Fritz has had 2 sunbaths on the deck so far!
We need a card for a lady having knee replacement surgery & thought the beautiful color combo for the MFT Color Challenge would be perfect. I don't have MFT inks or cardstock, so came as close as I could using PTI products. The background is made using the MFT Concentric Circle stencil. I inked the stencil with Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Spring Rain & Blueberry Sky, spritzed with water & laid my wc panel on top--one of my favorite ways to use a stencil. I did add a light layer of Gesso around the edges & watercolored with the same inks to soften everything. Hard to tell I used 4 ink colors so I pulled out the matching cardstock & cut MFT Layered Rose & Layered Leaves plus Prima Donna Petals for the flower center. All the pieces except the top layer of the leaves were brushed with Wink of Stella. I stamped my old sentiment from Just For Fun in Brilliance Starlite Black. The final touch was splattering Heidi Swapp white Color Shine, even letting some go on the flower & leaves. The mats are done by sponging the 2 darker inks on cardstock. It gives a softer look than colored cardstock & ties in with the background. I'm thinking this is close enough to enter the MFT Sketch challenge & I'm joining the Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by.
