I love color challenges and I pulled out an older Altenew floral called Best Mom and came up with this:
I started by heat embossing my floral image in silver, and then used PTI's Pierced Feature Frames to die cut the image into a frame. I used the selective coloring technique by only water coloring the inside rectangle piece with an Aqua Painter and some Altenew inks smooshed into an acrylic block that I could pick up with the Aqua Painter. I adhered my water colored piece to a top folding white card base and then added the uncolored die cut frame (that I backed with fun foam) over top of my water colored piece. I love the look of dimension and symmetry this technique gives!!
Here's a closer up where you can see the shine of the silver embossing, dimension, and the symmetry better. My "hello" comes from a Gina K set called Skeleton Leaves - loved that it was small enough to fit in that small space and still a pretty font too!
Our challenge is open till the 24th, so check out all the great inspiration from the DT and our special GD TaeEun and then play along with us. Remember to keep it CAS (LOTS of white space) and use all those lovely shades of BLUE out there with your water coloring...we can't wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
