Ok, I don't really have a muse! But I sometimes think there is someone or something that gets into my head and won't get out until I put it on paper. Humm! That sounds slightly crazy! Maybe I should rephrase that, Nah, I'm sure you get the picture.
Once again playing with stamps and paper. I took out "Fabulous Florets" and decided to do some more random stamping. But today I stepped it up a bit and Heat embossed the flowers and the leaves on Shimmer White card stock. I like how forgiving this card stock can be if you add water. (And there would certainly be water involved in this project).
Once that was done, I had to decide on my colors. I have mentioned in the last few posts that I was trying to use up some cut card stock and I just looked and found a couple of colors that "Spoke" (again with the voices!) to me. Marina Mist, Gumball Green and Basic Black. I heat embossed the images with Black Embossing powder.
Here is my share for today -
I used an Aqua painter to put the first color on the petals - Marina Mist. I did it very lightly and went back and added Pacific Point ink after it had dried. Then while waiting for it to dry again I colored the leaves in Lucky Limeade and added Gumball Green to darken the leaves. All this was done with the Aqua painter. Once everything was dried I went back with a Pacific Point marker and made it darker around the petals. I then painted the center of the flowers with Gumball Green. I took the Gumball Green marker and added a darker color to the leaves.
I like the light and dark and I think next time I would like to try Water Color paper to see if I could blend the colors a little more. I added some Marina Mist Polka Dot ribbon and punched a retired greeting with a large oval punch and the Scallop Oval Punch. Consider this done and my muse, weird voices or ghosts appeased!
Seeking help hugs!
