It's time for a new Color Challenge! This week Robin is our host and she has chosen the beautiful combination of Berry Burst, Tranquil Tide, Crumb Cake and Gold, and "dessert" is to color something, to which I say "yes please"!
I'm also joining this weeks CAS "Grateful" challenge to make a thank you or Thanksgiving card.
For my card I decided to use the lovely large rose image from Birthday Blooms. The floral image was heat set on the panel of watercolor paper with gold embossing powder, then reinkers and a paintbrush were used for watercoloring.
After the watercoloring dried, I had to decide on a sentiment. I needed something big to fill the space above the flowers, and ended up using lovely sentiments from Kind Flowers. After heat setting the large part of the sentiment in gold embossing powder, the remainder of the sentiment was heat set on the small strip of Tranquil Tide card stock and adhered with foam tape after gold watercolor paint was splattered on the panel. I also used the gold watercolor paint to color the stamen in the center of the flower. Lastly sequins were added for a finishing touch.
I hope you'll join us this week for the color challenge!
