Another humid scorching day means no outdoor work for me! Bring on more card making instead! I created this card for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge. I didn't have the exact dies to mimic the four squares, so went with the closest option and that was to use my Blueprints #27 set.
I cut out multiple sets of leaves late last night and watercolored with distress oxide inks. After they dried, they were much paler than I wanted so I dabbed on some paints from my
Mijello Mission palette and then I was happy! I splattered some Vintage Photo ink after I completed the main colors.
I found this photo on Pinterest that helped me mimic the colors in my leaves. I had a messy and grand old time adding colors and splattering! TIP: Wear old clothes for this project! I got a "nice" red spot of paint on my pants which then turned into a larger pink spot after trying to remove it. :-(
I wanted to try a subtle script background, so broke out a new 3D embossing folder by SU called Scripty. After embossing on Vintage Cream CS, I lightly sponged Sahara Sand (SU) ink over it. The sentiment was gold embossed on dark brown CS.
