you'll probably find me knitting! And with the very same colors as Mary has chosen for this weeks Color Challenge. Gorgeous Grape, Mint Macaron, Highland Heather are like a hint of Spring, wouldn't you say?
I created my background by using three close shades of Brushos (Purple, Violet, and Sea Green). I sprinkled the WC powders first and then spritzed with water. Used a wet wipe to dab the pooled colors. When I had a bit of color on the wipe, I took it over to another piece of watercolor paper and made large loose swipes of the colors...with the heather at the bottom, the macaron in the middle and finally the grape at the top. Once dry, I cut thin stripes of each color and then assembled them back together so I could stamp this fun Technique Junkie knitting image.
It was embossed with the 'Detail' Clear ep.
The basket is an unknown unmounted image. It was stamped with the 'Espresso' ink and I fussy cut the openings around the top. Into the basket was stuffed grape roving and some tiny 'balls of yarn' in the pretty macaron. I place a pair of knitting needles in the basket too.
This card is going postal tomorrow to my knitting friend, whom, my husband affectionately calls my knitting Yoda! She really is a mentor in that way...always happy to help me get unstuck or back on track. And I forgot to mention, I made three backgrounds from my Brusho encounter this morning. One more tie-dyed~ish with the original sprinkling and misting and another more of the solid array of color.
Thank you, for stopping by. I have really enjoyed the Color Challenges this month.

Instant FAV! This is so wonderful...the knitted bg is awesome and that basket with all the yarn and supplies (and roving..yes I now know what that is) is so creative. The colors work so well for your card...love the brushos bg, too.

You make me wish I knew how to knit. My sister is so good and I'm not patient enough. If I knew how to knit, I probably would have watched more Packer games this year. That's what my sister does when the going gets tough. Knit, knit, knit, faster and faster. Anyway, about your card....FABULOUS! Such a good stamp for you and I love that little basket. Just perfect and favd by Jean Bean.
