So, here's my project for today!
I started by smooshing three different colors of Distress Oxide inks directly onto watercolor cardstock. I used Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Seedless Preserves. I then sprayed it liberally with a pearl shimmer spray. I soaked up bits here and there with a paper towel and dryed it with my heat gun. I felt a few spots were splotchy yet so I repeated. Once it was dry, I sprayed it with clean water and blotted it up with a paper towel. Then I just stared at it. It was lovely but I had no clue what to do with it!
I looked around on my very messy craft desk and a stamp set jumped out at me. It's from Gina K Designs and is called Through Thick and Thin. You can find it on Gina's website HERE. I stamped the images using my Misti just in case I didn't get good coverage since I was stamping on watercolor paper. Once that was finished I thought about it a little more. What could I do to add a little something extra to this piece? Copic markers!! I took T3 and T1 and went around the outside of all the flowers. I loved it so much I also added the same two colors to the shadowed areas of the stamp.
Then I couldn't decide where to put a sentiment over all of that loveliness, so I didn't! I cut it out with two different stitched rectangle dies from MFT stamps. The outside layer I adhered directly to the card base and used craft foam on the center layer. I happened to have a little baggie of sequins laying out that were the perfect accent. And that's it!
One close up picture just because!
Hope you find time to join in!
