Today is the launch day for our brand new blog hop and I’m so excited to be part of this international group of amazing Stampin’ Up! demonstrators! Each month, on the third Tuesday, we will post a project using the featured colour palette. Here is this months inspiration:
I am really enjoying watercolouring at the moment and this colour selection was just perfect for that! I chose the gorgeous flower image from hostess set Best Thoughts, which I heat embossed on to watercolour paper. I coloured the image using my Aquapainter with Perfect Plum, Blackberry Bliss, Smoky Slate & Old Olive. The Blackberry Bliss turns very bright pink when you add water so I had to be careful how much I used, and end back a couple of times with extra Plum to counteract it. Once I had finished colouring and left it to dry I went over the whole flower with Clear Wink of Stella for that gorgeous shimmer!
Well that’s it from me for this month. I hope you will head around the rest of the hop and see what all of the other creative ladies around the world have created!
