No Words Unspoken

I wanted to play along at Mojo Monday using the pretty colors at ColourQ.  To start I tore micropore tape to divide a watercolor panel in 3 sections.
I combined Distress Inks fired brick & ripe persimmon to make coral & smooshed onto the center panel. Then I combined fired brick & worn lipstick for the pink panels.  I added some water drops & sprayed with Perfect Pearls mist.  Spellbinders Curved Rectangles was cut from heavy weight vellum.  I stamped in white & used clear embossing powder for the stems & leaves from Verve New Beginnings.  The leaves were die cut from green & glued on top.  The little flowers from the same set were stamped in Memento Nautical Blue, die cut & covered in WOS.  I mounted them with foam tape & added pearls & a floss bow.  The sentiment from Verve Dream Big was stamped in Nautical Blue & the panel was mounted to navy blue cardstock. As I told my Hospice patients, none of us know how long we have. "Leave no words unspoken" is pretty good advice. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.  Thank you so much for taking time to stop by.

  11. Totally gorgeous & fun, happy colors. Loved your idea to divide up that panel, and do the treatments. It certainly created a stunning background, and adding the vellum rectangle & embellies took this one way over the top! Must remember to try this. TFS & Hugs
