Pin-Sights, IB24 - Thanks


More fun with Colorburst powders! This time in aquas and greens for the current Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights Challenge:


September 2016 Mood Board

as well as for the current Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge:




I started by using Colorburst powder in Turquoise to create stripes on my background panel. I stamped my sentiment in Stampin' Up Archival Basic Gray.

I stamped and embossed the peony and leaves before tapping Colorburst powder (Turquoise, Lime Green and Lemon Yellow for the flower, Lime Green and Chartreuse for the leaves) and spritzing, then 'smoothing' with a waterbrush.

I used:
-Essentials by Ellen Mondo Peony (take a look in the gallery - pretty much everyone is using this gorgeous set! lol!) and matching dies.
-Essentials by Ellen Fancy Thanks

Beautiful! I'm a tad behind on my reading/commenting. It seems like you've been delving deep into the watercoloring while I was "gone". Cool.
