So......like many people I got the new Spectrum Aqua Pens. I wanted to use them right away since I have been on quite the water coloring kick lately! I stamped these flowers from JustRite's Applique Flowers & Vintage Sentiment set with Versamark and embossed them in white. I used the Spectrum Aqua Pens to give the flowers and leaves color. For this image, I didn't use any water at all. I colored with my darkest color first and then blended it using my lighter shades. The color moved like butter! I cut out the flowers and leaves and adhered them to a circle/scalloped circles using Spellbinder's dies.
The background uses the same Spellbinder's Criss Cross die that I had used on my last post. I used the Spectrum Aqua pens to color it in shades of pink and yellow. I added glossy accents to the entire panel and sprinkled it with glitter. I added some ribbon, teeny flowers, and a few sequins and pearls.
Thanks for having patience with me as I post somewhat infrequently. My girl is taking up a lot more of my time these days and my crafting /blogging time has been drastically reduced.
But it's the way it is right now and things will get better!
Have a wonderful Friday!
