discover a beautiful world...

Hi everyone, 

As a shock to my system I thought it was about time I contributed something creative to the blog by joining in with the May colour challenge.  

The background was created on a piece of Tim Holtz watercolour paper. I've used a Darkroom Door background stamp (the perfect size for cards) and embossed it in white.

One cools I used paints (water colour in this case mainly because I had run out of acrylics on these colours - time to replenish my supplies me thinks) with a nice loose wash allowing the colours to mix and puddle in the embossed sections.  

The "earth" was done the same way using black embossing powder.  
Everything was then matted on to black cardstock.  Topped of with my all time favourite Satmpotique girl and Tim Holtz rub-ons. 

Thanks for stopping by! 


Supplies Used: 

Watercolour paints

Saw this on the Stampotique FB page and had to come check it out. Goosebumps! This is really gorgeous. Love the contrast of the earthy blues and greens against the hot pinks and oranges.
