This morning I set out to make another project for the WoodwareUSA color challenge. I worked for hours with something else (can't tell you what it is yet cause it's a work in progress), but got tired of it and started working with a new set I got the other day. I purchased Leafy Swirls and Circular Greetings. Initially, I stamped the long leafy swirl on kraft cardstock then colored it and then I tried my hand at watercoloring with my distress inks...Bad idea...So...I had to cut out the swirl. I then distressed some white cardstock with Vintage Photo ink. I had the teal circle scrap on my worktable so I thought it would work well with the color scheme. I stamped it with the circular sentiment and added the flower with bling too. After moving, sliding and fiddling a bit, I finally found a pleasing design and started gluing things down. There was a lot of negative space to the left of the circle so I stamped some more swirls and added them to the edge.
I picked up the little butterfly (colored with my copics) from the GASC convention and I can't remember which booth it came from. I also colored the bling with my Copics. I think I'm going to splatter a bit of red or teal acrylic paint on the background paper to give it more pop...What do you think?
Hope you're taking part in the color challenge at the WoodwareUSA blog. Come back tomorrow for another creation inspired by the yummy color combination of red, teal and kraft.
