I have a card to share with you today, inspired by the latest Virginia's View Challenge, to use ombre or monochromatic, as well as Paulina's Watercolor Blog Hop over at Pretty Pink Posh. Both challenges are inspiring, and go well together! I love this type of media, it lends so much artistic freedom.
I used Tim Holtz watercolor cardstock, and the Highline Ironwork background stamp from Hero Arts and Basic Gray to emboss a resist onto the panel. I added Picked Raspberries, Squeezed Lemonade, and Salty Ocean Distress Inks to create a blended rainbow of color.
I adhered the panel to a white card base, and added the Simon Says Stamp Smile Circle die cut that I layered and adhered to a black cardstock circle. I also adhered a strip of vellum heat embossed with my greeting from the Happy and Smile stamp set, over a wad of black thread. I finished it with some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!
I even created a little video showing how I made the panel. I previously shared a picture of my new video set up on instagram, and FB, and hope to make more videos soon. You can check out the stand I use, here!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend.
