Hello my friends. In the last IndigoBlu challenge I made the top 3 and so they asked me if I wanted to do a guest design piece. Of course I accepted.
I started with a brusho background that i had that had bright colours fitting an Indian theme. The brusho colours are brilliant red, turquoise and leaf green. I stamped sentiment in versamark and embossed in black.
I got the echinacea and prepared 2 masks. I then stamped the flower andmasked to create depth along the top and bottom edges in black archival.I coloured with spectrum noir pencils and added wink of stella for some sparkle.I coloured the sentiment with a white sharpie pen to make it pop.
I went around topper with faded jeans and chipped sapphire distress inks. Whendry i went round in versamark and embossed in gold sparkle.
Next i did the border on the base card. I left a margin and masked the card off with copy paper. I stamped the flower, overlapping with the help of the masks to create depth. I drew squiggly lines with a black pen joining all the petals. I then coloured the negative space with spectrum pencils to match the brusho hues.
I then matted on white which helped the sentiment to pop and then black. Next i added another brusho layer and then black again.
Finished card is A5. As always I hope you like my make, Theresa xx
I really wish you could see the sparkle that's visible in real life.......
