Playing around with backgrounds again, still totally inspired by Joni! This time I went a little more classy and elegant than my regular style. I will get straight to it:
Joni posted a video last week showing how she created her own flowers with water colours. They turned out beautifully. My attempt, not so much. But I figured I might have better luck using an image that I could colour in. So I pulled out one of my favourite old Stampin' Up! images - a somewhat large scale flower, and went to work.
What you're seeing is my second crack at it. The first went straight to the recycling bin, with no dinner! Once I had the water colouring done, I sprayed it with Perfect Pearls to give it a really nice shimmer (although you can't see it at all in the photo). Next I used one of my Wplus9 heart background stamps and stamped it repeatedly in versamark ink until it filled the panel, then I white embossed it. I added some splatters with my gold distress paint and finished it off with some vellum die cut leaves (Wplus9) and gold hearts (PS). The sentiment is Wplus9 as well.
And that's it for me today!
Hope you are having a fabulous day!
Thanks for stopping by - I always appreciate it!
