I have been stalking the Colour Throwdown blog this year but have yet managed to get something made and shared by the deadline... I think I'm going to make it this week, fingers crossed!
Here is the swatch that inspired the colours.
I made three cards using the same stamp which is a few years old and from Concord & 9th. I embossed with white powder on to three different types of kraft.
The first card was colour with Polychromos pencils, mounted on to white and embellished with a few sequins.
The second is roughly painted with a couple of mists mixed with mica powders. The mica is making the colours show on the kraft, without it the sink into the kraft card and barely show up.
I was very loose with the painting and added a few splatters too.
I added a gold high five sticker. I think I need a stamp that says high five - are there any out there you can let me know of?
And finally a piece painted with the mica/mist mix. This one was more deliberately painted. This kraft cardstock was much thinner and warped A LOT so I used a sheet of double sided adhesive to mount it to some cardboard before mounting that on to the card.
Again finished with a few sequins and some Heidi Swapp glitter alphas.
I recorded my process so hopefully the video will follow in a couple of days!
Thanks for stopping by!
