I have some good news! Remember The Heart Desires Challenge (THDC) #1? Yep, I was the lucky winner, so, as privilege for winners, I will be September Guest Designer… isn’t this a cool prize?
As a new challenge starts today, THDC #4, I will be posting my first of two posts. I made a card inspired by this yummy inspiration picture… and there is so much to start with in this gorgeous photo!
This is a very simple card. I stamped a bicycle from Stamperia in watercolor paper using Archival ink, and then used a few colors of Brushos for the “explosion” of flowers in the basket, and I just love how it turned out! There was a previous attempt in which I wasn’t happy with the result. Brushos, as other similar powders, I suppose, provide random results, but there is something we can control a bit: the amount of water that will allow color to spread. I prefer to use only a few spatters at first, using a brush, just enough to activate the powders, and then, if needed, add a little more water. Every time I used a spray, the result is much more “muddy”.
To mimic the black and white stripes I decided to use my b & w washi tapes. The sentiment is from Simple Stories “DIY” 6” x 6” paper pad.
Have a nice day!
Thank you for stopping by.
