It’s Inkspiration time and I have to say I fell in love with this sketch instantly. So many possibilities……I love having lots of options LOL! This time though I wanted to play with a colour I don’t often reach for. I have a few of them you know!! Like Poppy Parade and Bravo Burgundy. Peach Parfait is on this list too and well it ended up being the colour of choice. The verdict~ I love it and will be using it more often.
This weeks sketch~
and my submission~
Don’t you just love this colour combo? So fresh and striking. Of course I would try to turn them into a vintage feel, LOL! I also found a new technique (well I don’t think it’s necessarily new but it’s the first time I did it). I could not find my sponges (have I told you lately I am losing the plot?) so instead of pulling my hair out looking for them I decided to use tissues to sponge the ink on the edges of the CS. It seems to give it a more mottled effect and I love it. If you haven’t done it before have a go!
I do love the effect of embossing in black and then watercolouring on Crumb Cake CS. I especially love doing it with the Elements of Style SS. What do you think? I might have a play later on with other colours. Make some suggestions and I might just make it for you!
Anyway check out the rest of the DT and don’t forget to go to the Inkspirations Challenge Blog to submit your creation!
