Sparkle & Shine November 1st Challenge

Happy November!It's the first which means that it is time for another Sparkle & Shine Challenge. This week's inspiration photo is all about the greens, blues, and purples...colors that are right up my alley!


I started this with a panel of watercolor paper, some heat embossing and some Inspired Blueprint Distress Ink.  I heat embossed the stamps with white first and then applied a watercolor wash on one side of the flowers. Before I let the color wash dry I sprinkled it with some salt, which gave it the marbled look. A little extra bonus to the salt application was that where the blooms occurred a little hint of purple came shining through.

After the wash was dry I then painted in the flowers and leaves with Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, and Cracked Pistachio. The sentiment was then stamped in black and outlined with a white gel pen.
Lastly, I embellished the flowers with some Clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins.


Here was this week's inspiration photo...
