Today marks the start of a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Check out this soft, serene pallette...
I pulled out the Helping Me Grow stamp set, which I've owned for several months but had not yet inked up! I thought these beautiful floral images were perfect for the ombre watercolour wash background. To achieve the ombre effect I used Pool Party, Marina Mist and Dapper Denim inks with my aqua painter on watercolour paper. I have to admit that my Marina Mist ink pad has been sadly neglected too. It's funny because that was once one of my go-to blues...how my tastes have changed! The floral image is heat embossed in white. I added some spatters of silver using the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and (retired) silver metallic Encore ink. The watercolour panel is mounted directly on a Marina Mist card stock base.
I hope you'll give this soft and pretty colour pallette a try and share with us over at Sunday Stamps this week. Have a super Sunday!
