This is for CC199 - we were to use So saffron, bravo burgundy and handsome hunter. I saw this challenge early this morning and finally decided on this image before I went to work. I thought about the layout all day.
After work I stopped at HL for some red double sided tape. Honest, that's all I stopped for. But I found some paper packs on clearance. I got a Basic Grey pack for $1.99 and a huge pad of My Mind's Eye for $11.99.
Now, we all know, new DP has to be used on the first available card . . .
I colored my image with markers on water color paper. I'm finally getting the hang of this. I really had no idea how I was going to incorporate Bravo Burgundy in this card, but I used BB on the boy's shirt.
My DP was sponged with Bravo Burgundy and then the edges distress. I had no Primas that matched they way I wanted, so I took this one, a very fine paint brush and some Bravo Burgundy, but it was too dark, so I soaked my Prima in water first, then added a touch of Bravo Burgundy and loved the new look.
So, what do you think?
