Hi and happy Wednesday. It is time again for our blog hop. I'm glad you made it this week. We have a somewhat unusual inspiration piece. What I thought when I saw this was calm, soft, and silhouette. You should have come to me by way of Liz's blogsite. I know she struggled with this one as much as I did. I need to go take a look, I bet she did a beautiful creation.
Although I love this picture, and love the colors in the inspiration, I had a terrible time making my card work. I did like the idea of a new technique. I was perusing Robbie's blogsite yesterday and saw a color technique she did and decided to try it. Know what made me try it???? She said she used Almond Milk! Well, I just happened to have Almond Milk from last week when my grandkids were here and we made smoothies. So I tried it. I just used some of the the milk, dropped a few reinker colors, and then put my watercolor paper on the top to soak up some of the color. What I did discover, however, was that the first color you drop gets pushed aside by the next drops of colors. So, use the color you want to dominate last.
Well I have blabbered enough. Here is our inspiration piece.
And here are the Stampin'Up! colors:
Now you should continue the hop and head back to Robbie's blogsite. Her creation is probably gorgeous, and I bet full of color. She is working on different color techniques right now. Go take a look.
Hope to see you soon,
