I have recently bought some luminarte pourable radiant rain inks and I had been looking for an excuse to play with them. I decide to use the stamps from Designs By Ryn and knew I wanted to use the leaves.
1.So I chose 5 colours of inks. I pipetted afew drops of blue, pewter and red pearl on my craft sheet, spritzed with water and swooshed the card through it till I was happy with colour.
2. Using an artist texture sponge, I sponged a bit of pink grapefruit and sunshine yellow on top. (I wish you could see the shimmer that I can see!).
3. I then stamped in black archival ink. I used 5 stamps: 3 leaves, a droplet and the coral which in this case can be interpreted as twigs.
4. I bleached some colour from droplets with water and added a little white to highlight them and then covered them in glossy accents to increase water resemblance.
5. I matted and layered on complimentary colours and stuck to base card. Finished dimensions are 6x6.
I hope you like my make, Theresa xx
Seeing that I used a lot of 5's in the making of this card and that the pattern obtained by leaves could be described as a flourish I would like to enter it into the following challenges:
