This week’s Splitcoaststampers color challenge is titled So Smoky & Slushy. The colors are So Saffron, Smoky Slate and Strawberry Slush. With dessert option of twine.
I was inspired by the card that Julie Ebersole did for Monday’s (June 2, 2014) Hello, Monday feature on Ellen Hutson’s The Classroom blog.
I embossed the flowers in white on watercolor paper, then spritzed with water. I don’t have reinkers in any of the challenge colors, but I had 2 of the 3 colors in marker form, and the 3rd in an ink pad. So, I used 2 markers and a blender pen (with the ink pad) to get color into the water on the paper. I finally bagged the blender pen – it didn’t work the way I anticipated, and pulled out my aqua brush to spread the Smoky Slate.
Thanks for stopping by!
