I can't believe it's week #3 already, but I'm back again for my October guest designer gig for the Just Us Girls challenge! This week is Color Week and I'll admit I was initially intimidated by the purple which is not one of my go-to colors. I kept trying to think of a fall/Halloween theme, but finally decided to play once again with one of my fave images to watercolor. You know...I ended up loving this color combination! I guess that's why I enjoy challenges so much...they stretch me to work outside my normal box!
I started by die-cutting the flower pot from watercolor paper and coloring with a Faded Jeans distress ink marker. I picked up a small amount of water on a brush and blended the "scribbles". Then I die cut the flowers and leaves and applied more distress ink markers to the stamps, stamped them onto the watercolor CS shapes and blended with a brush. Then I got to play flower designer and filled up the vase!
Here's what else I used:
STAMPS: Pretty Peonies, Fresh Cut Containers - both sets by WPlus9
PAPER: Tim Holtz watercolor CS, Lucky Limeade (SU), White (PTI)
ACCESSORIES: Lattice BG die by WPlus9, Hand Lettered Thanks die by WPlus9, Clear Wink of Stella glitter brush marker, Clear rhinestones by SU.
TIM HOLTZ DISTRESS MARKERS: Faded Jeans, Dusty Concord, Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, Mustard Seed.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you playing along with us this week!
