Remarkable You CTD#484

More playing with the watercolor spritz technique! This one inspired by the color challenge this week at The Color Throwdown. Purple is my thing, so I had to give it a whirl! Here is my card

 and their challenge graphic.

I started with a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and stamped the scribble image from Sunshine Sayings. Once in full strength Elegant Eggplant, once stamped off once Elegant Eggplant and once Emerald Envy. I then sat it off to the side on a scratch piece of paper and sprayed it with my water mister bottle. 

After it dried, I came back and stamped the leaf image from Remarkable You in Basic Gray over the color. At the bottom I added "just for you" from Work of Art also in Basic Gray. The ribbon is the FREE Sale-A-Bration item Shimmer Ribbon Pack, 1/4" Basic Gray. The background was mounted onto Emerald Envy, and then onto a card base of Elegant Eggplant after the ribbon was knotted. Lastly, I picked up my Wink of Stella pen again and went over the image. It honestly came out much darker than I wanted. Part because I squeezed too hard and got a big glob of glitter, maybe also part because the colors underneath are so dark. All in all though, it doesn't look terrible! Lesson learned. Dark colors might be better with a solid image, and no Wink!

Thanks for stopping by again today! I have one more of these to share, hopefully tomorrow. Then I've got to crack down this weekend and get my workshop for next weekend in order. I'm well on the way but need to finalize the projects and get my catties and flyers in order! Shopping links an product details below!
