I pulled out some new Altenew goodies and my favourite Catherine Pooler inks to make this card for this week's Muse challenge, where Tracey brought us this inspiration:
I focused on Tracey's:
-blue smooshed background
Don't you love how this flower almost looks like the ends of a mermaid's tail?
I started by smooshing 4 colours of CP Ink onto my watercolour panel to create a rich blended background. On another panel, I stamped the flower with Versamark then embossed with gold embossing powder. I watercoloured it with yellow, orange, red and green CP Inks and used the matching die to cut it out. I used Copics to colour the edges around the flower to match the background.
Here's a close-up so you can see the shimmer:
