Fly

How about a little pink, lilac and more pink?  I was inspired to play along in a few challenges the Words & Paintery Color Challenge and the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge #13. (Think Pink) 

I have to tell you that the background started from a ribbon I was misting pink.  I was waiting for it to dry and decided to take a scrap of cardstock and kept pressing the cardstock on the ribbon until the surface of the cardstock was covered.  It reminded me of the sponge painting we did on our basement of course not in pink. :) 

When I was done I thought it made a pretty soft background and decided to use that as the base for the challenges.  I then stamped the Prima Finnabair image in black added some touches of lilac with my STAEDLTER watercolor pencils.  I then looked over and saw my hot pink sequins and thought they would be the perfect whimsical touch. 

They were all glopped together because I had used them on another project glue dots on and ended up pulling them off the other project and put them back in the container. when I pulled them out and placed some around the card I loved the overlapping effect and decided to use them the way they were. :)












That's all for me today!  Have a great one!

  11. You were right, your use of the sequins did add a whimsical touch. I enjoyed reading how this piece came together. Your use of the cardstock to quickly dry the inked ribbon and have the paper serve as the background or base for the card was a great idea.
