I decided I wanted to enter in the Fusion Challenge as I loved the colours and had ideas buzzing around but this was one of those mornings/days that nothing really worked. I decided to use a different flower than that shown as there were already so many of those and I thought I would use another Uniko flower set. I stamped with the outline and decided to do watercolour on the inside.
I made a million (alright 10) flower masks and one butterfly mask.Stamped the butterfly in Black but the flowers with the new Ombre Inks from Hero Art - Pinks and Oranges. Stamped here and there then watercoloured. Sometimes with just a light bit of watercolour, sometimes combining pinks and oranges, sometimes double layers and even added a bit of red on the deeper pink layer.
Painted the butterfly with a mix of blue then blue/mauve. Oooops a little bit of run out here and there. Looked at it and hated it. Tossed it aside. Started on another image - too many flowers I decided so decided to do the gerber Uniko flower - stamped in black -YUCK didn't like it. then looked at this panel again and thought ' really not bad, as it dried it imrpoved.
Decided to mount on a burgundy card base. But first I cut out 'Hello' die cut from the actual picture and four in black. Taped down the base well and flat on card base. Added the four layers of black 'hello' three little gems in pinks and orange.
Now Im on the fence again. Whats your opinion??? Does it work? Don't look too close - yes I just had to spray with Pearl mist and hated, hated the look.
Okay so entering this in Fusion Card Challenge : FUSION (Bright Butterfly)
all those oranges and pinks and the beautiful blue butterfly for my inspiration.
Adding to 'The Daily Marker - 30 Day Colouring Challenge Day 27
didn't go Masculine but did use Uniko stamp.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Update: Got picked in the Top Three by the DT's at Uniko when the challenge finished, I'm not sure about blog etiquette but thought I would post here so I remember. This is my first time I have had a card picked not random but because they liked my card so thats a real WAHOOOO from me.
