Absolutely loved this week’s challenge at Our Creative Corner from the fabulous and very talented Susan Butler at Scrumplescrunch. If you haven’t already, definitely head on over to her blog for some serious inspiration!
Sue’s challenge is to make your own background:
And absolutely no patterned paper on your project!”
I then used my markers to add ink in different colours (you could use re-inkers for this but mine are packed!) and then an aqua brush to blend the colours nicely. I wanted to keep the colours soft and subtle. I then used the French Foliage stamp set to add the leaves, splodges and very faint words, while the paper was still very wet. I thought it needed a bit more colour then, so I have used some alcohol inks and dropped some blobs of ink in various colours. The flowers are from the Field Flowers stamp set, which have been stamped and then cut out and layered over the background. The centres of the flowers have some tiny spots of Copper coloured alcohol ink in the centre, which gives it a nice shine, along with some Champagne Glimmer paper and Crumb Cake Tulle Ribbon.
