I love online challenge blogs because I can find myself going in a direction in crafting that I hadn't planned on, out of my box so to say.
The Color Throwdown Challenge for this week was a simple black, brown, white. I thought that would be easy until I started working on it. This might be my third attempt!!! I stamped a Simon Says Stamp background stamp in white on watercolor paper, embossed it with white embossing powder and then just blotted a brown Distress Stain all over that, letting the ink sit in puddles as it dried. I love this "resist" technique especially with the white lines.
The large "thank you" die is by Altenew and the leaves are from Paper Smooches. I covered the leaves with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. I love how easy it is to spread this liquid and how evenly it dries with a great crystal shine. The black dots are Nuvo Crystal Drops. I purchased both from Simon Says Stamp and they might be my new obsession.Color Throwdown challenge.
