I am trying to stay ahead so I began creating my holiday thank you notes. The idea for this card came to me over several days. I won a challenge this summer and the prize was a gift certificate to Visible Images. I selected several stamp sets and thought it would be fun to do a modern card using some of the circles and spheres that came in the sets. Aqua and red are perfect for this time of year.
I embossed all the images in silver on watercolor paper and used just two watercolor hues. I changed the shades by adding more water to the areas I wanted less intense, so while I had just two colors on my pallet, I had several pools of aqua and red in varying shades to work from. I added a strip of aqua to the edge to accent the colors. I love the shine and shimmer from the silver embossing powder.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Color Throwdown #519 Challenge I got my color inspirations from this challenge. I had been pondering aqua and apple green, but when I saw this challenge I knew I wanted to use red and aqua.
Simply Less is More #384 Metallics Challenge I love their metallic prompt!
Thanks for stopping by!
