The no line background created with color pencils was amazing to watch. I think I got the effect down. I did go a bit crazy with the gold thread! The color wash is very subtle, hard to photograph, pinks fading to pale yellow on the top and bottom. The piece is matted on gold edged card.
I had so much trouble with this next technique, this is attempt #5...I love the look Jennifer McGuire was able to capture, and I got close, but in doing so I tossed a lot of attempts. I don't even want to save them for die cuts.
Next up was some stamping to mimic water coloring in Day 3. I may have to give this one another go, but I do so love the colors in this one. I painted in the stems and leaves... This was part of a two step stamp set and the flowers were put on individually and in different places than the stem stamp hence the need for the hand drawn stems.
I just have to say Kristina Werner is amazing, her sample was so beautiful, I want to buy the stamp set...but could I pull it off???? That's the big question. Will have to mull that one over for a while. Have a wonderful day. I am going to be cleaning windows today, it is finally warm and dry enough to get it done. Thanks for stopping by.
