Here's my second entry to the Scrapbook Boutique September Challenge using pink, lilac, white and green.
This was fun, fun, fun to do.
I used a Stampin Up Sizzix embossing die - really gorgeous impression.
Then, I sponged on some Tim Holtz distress inks: spun sugar, dusty concord and shabby shutters, leaving some white bit to suit the challenge requirements. And to give it a bit of a shimmer, I sprayed on some Perfect Pearls mixed with water, using a mini-mister.
Spraying the sponged-on distress inks actually did 2 things:
(1) give a shimmery effect
(2) blend the colours better for a water colour effect.
I love this technique....watch Tim Holtz do it in the embedded video.
Again, all these products - apart from the SU die - are available from Scrapbook Boutique.
