Three colors I totally gravitate to are Pool Party, Night of Navy, and Granny Apple Green. Together they are a POWER palette and are our colors for this week's challenge at #TGIF215.
I've made a couple one of a kind backgrounds for this card. The first one I made by dripping refill inks down a piece of Shimmer White Cardstock with an Aquapainter. This was fun to watch the drips run as I tipped the paper back and forth to move the ink.
My second background was made using the Arts and Crafts Dies. In the die set there is a strip of buttons that can be used in some fun ways. I cut seven button strips from Night of Navy Cardstock and adhered them to my Night of Navy card base. Before I added my focal pieces I spritzed the tone on tone background with Frost White Paint mixed in rubbing alcohol.
It Starts with Art is a new stamp set that can be purchased as a bundle with the Arts and Crafts Dies. Both stamps and dies are perfect for those of us who find joy being a part of the world of paper crafting. I stamped the images with waterproof black ink so I could watercolor with the same inks used to make my striped background.
