TGIF#10 Colour Challenge

Friday, July 3, 2015


Thank goodness it's Friday!  The TGIF team are back with a new challenge - this lovely colour combination.  I have watercolouring on my mind this week in preparation for my upcoming class over the weekend.  So it felt natural to reach for my watercolour paper and aqua painters for this week's challenge.

I started by stamping the Everything Eleanor flower on watercolour paper with StazOn ink.  I added the stem - masking the end off so as to shorten it.  I then drew a border with my Project Life Journaling pen and painted island indigo within the drawn frame and the flower in blackberry bliss..

The sentiment comes from the Watercolour Wings set.  After stamping this I drew another round of borders with my pens.  To create the shadow effect around this second set of framing I picked up the smoky slate ink with my aqua painter and blended it out from the outline.


To finish the flower I added a jewel to the centre and some dazzling details.

This is mounted to the front of some island indigo card stock that's been spritzed with a little whisper white craft ink and stamped with the lovely Everything Eleanor flourish.

So what do you think? Are you feeling inspired by these gorgeous tones?? I've had a lot of fun putting this design together and I can't wait to see what you come up with too! Pop on over to the TGIF site to see what the other designers have created and read more about this challenge.
