I am so happy with how this turned out. I had so many ideas. I decided to enter in a Colour Throwdown and of course its now last minute but I love the colour choices for this one.
I stamped the flowers from a new Altenew stamps. I looked at so many ideas but decided to go this way. I stamped them down the length of the cardstock and of course I never thought of size so the card is larger than I would normally do. I stamped in lemonade distress ink which was pretty pale but worked and also did a bit of masking. I then used a mix of four yellow copics to produce the curves and highlights.
I then outlined the inner section of the flowers with the palest grey copic I have just to add a bit of shadow.
I then fussy cut along the length of the card any white that showed.
I then got a larger piece of card stock so I could blend blue down the side, distress ink again. I sprayed with shimmer mist then lightly blended again to soften. I only wanted a bit of shimmer not a night sky with stars which is what it looked like.
If you look closely you can see the bits of shimmer.
Stamped sentiment and added a couple of navy gems to finish it off. I am really happy with this but sure wouldn't do too often cause I felt like my hands were going to seize up.
I would like to enter this in a couple of challenges.
Was just looking at the Time Out Challenge and thought I would add to that one as well. Hopefully 4 challenges is not too many anywhere.
I passed on the optional twist for this one as I haven't gone Monochrome.
Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again.
