I love flowers and colours too! (by Maria)


Hello everybody, today I have some colourful examples for you, just the way I like them.


I have made a card to show you and four ATC's. I took some watercolour paper and my favorite Dylusions ink. I sprayed some water over my paper and then took some green and pink Dylusions sprays and sprayed them over the paper. For the card I used the pink and green part of the paper, for the ATC it was only the green area. The final ATC has a bit of blue too. Then I sprayed some salt, here and there and let everything air dry. When the paper was dry, I stamped the flower from the Awesome Orchids stamp set first, masked it and then stamped the stalk. I stamped the flowers again on some other paper that I had coloured with Dylusions ink and cut them out. With some 3D foam I placed them on the stamped flower on the card.

For the ATCs I did the same with the bottom two, but on the top two, I took away the colour with some bleach and coloured them again with alcoholic markers.
I hope you like my samples, and try out the techniques some time, it was real fun!

Greetings,
Maria

  7. So so pretty Maria and love your vibrant colours and I love the patterns that the salt makes. I have tried the bleaching out technique but I think I overdid it because it ate through the card ..lol. Must try it again and be less heavy handed. x

  9. Very sunny & summery. I love the way you have used the green for the leaves in your card & how the orchids themselves have colours that provide some contrast with the background. The black mounting on all your samples really sets them off. I think my favourite of these is that bottom right blue & red ATC - the way the orchid's leaves glow against the background & the gorgeous flower itself which also glows.
