Wanted to make one more card for the W&W Color Challenge which is about to close.
The black embossed bloom from In Bloom: Addie's Garden was fussy cut, as I don't have the dies. I colored with Distress Markers by mixing dried marigold & worn lipstick to make the peach and dusty concord & festive berries to make the reddish purple. Then I painted with a small wet paintbrush. I used a golden Stickles & black gem in the flower center & heavily brushed with Wink of Stella.
The leaves were stamped in DI lucky clover, sponged with cracked pistachio & fussy cut. The WP9 lattice die cut was sponged with the same 2 green inks. The sentiment is from PTI Take Three Summer & I added 2 tiny black gems. I'm also entering Dies R Us, Die Cut Divas & SSS Work it Wednesday.
Next is my card for PTI MIM where the theme is Watercolor Wash Backgrounds. I love emboss resist & knew that's what I wanted to do. Decided to give it a try with my Zig markers, so I used Bristol paper.
Quilled Elegance is a beautiful set & worked great for the technique. I used my new Mix & Mat Flourishes die to cut the rectangle of little holes--such a neat look! Wonderful Words Love was die cut from self-adhesive fun foam & covered with Elizabeth Craft Cool Highlight glitter.
The sentiment is from Counting My Blessings & clear Nuvo Drops finish it off. I'm also entering Allsorts & CCCB. Love how so many people are staging their cards, so thought I'd try using one of my grandmother's Haviland plates as a backdrop. Need to practice getting the angle right, but kind of fun to do something a little different. Thanks so much for stopping by.
