Merry Monday #267 - A Color Challenge

Hello friends.  This week at Merry Monday is a color challenge, so dig out your blues, greens, and white, silver, or vellum!


 Here's what I came up with:


I had fun doing a technique I saw Jennifer McGuire do a few weeks ago using Alcohol Inks, blending solution, and a cotton ball.  (You can see Jennifer's video HERE)  I used Botanical and Pool colors and was hoping my colors would be a little more intense, but am still happy with the way the background came out.  I used an AliExpress die in white and added a silver embossed sentiment from PTI's Ways To Say: Merry Christmas.  CAS and FUN!


Can't wait to see what YOU come up with this week using these colors.  The DT has some beautiful inspiration too, so check it all out and play along with us right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  13. I missed this pretty card when you posted it, Marcia, and I missed the cotton ball technique on JM's blog, but I sure lucked out finding this in my mailbox! Thank you so much, my friend!! I love the way the colors turned out and I've bookmarked this to try the cotton ball and ink! Hugs, Darnell
