Hello crafty friends, I am so honoured to be playing along with the Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge this month!Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights challenge is a monthly inspirational challenge based on a Pinterest Inspired photo that is located on the CLASSroom blog.
I was inspired by beautiful flowers and ombré pink, so romantic!
Here is what I came up with:
For my ombré watercolour background, I 1) Coloured on watercolour paper with (from the bottom) Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar Distress inks using a wet flat brush. 2) Trimmed it with Wonky Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics. 3) Stamped the flowers and leaves from Bohemian Garden set at the centre of the watercoloured panel using embossing ink, clear heat embossed (Make sure to completely dry your panel!). 4) Applied a bit of water around the embossed images using a paint brush to remove the ink. 5) Added Picked Raspberry ink splatters. For the sentiment, I used Be-YOU-Tiful die. I cut it 3 additional times and layered it to give it some dimension.
For my second card, I 1) Stamped the flowers and leaves from Bohemian Garden set on watercolour paper panel using embossing ink, white heat embossed. 2) Coloured them with Distress inks using a waterbrush: Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar for flowers and Bundled Sage for leaves. 3) Added opaque white ink splatters. 4) Stamped the sentiment from Love You So by set on the watercoloured panel in pigment black. 5) Mounted it on A2 size white card base using double-sided tape.
Now it’s your turn to play along for an amazing prize! A random challenge participant will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store. To be eligible, you MUST use Essentials by Ellen products and the photo badge as inspiration. Submit your entry to the inlinkz on the challenge post.
