I'm really enjoying the Summer of Color challenge over at Twinkle Twinkle - each week, Kristin gives us a colour inspiration based on an icecream flavour and this week it was Strawberry Lemonade Punch
Yummy strawberry pink with zingy lemon yellow. The challenge is to produce any piece of art inspired by these colours. Here's my interpretation
My plan is to do an ATC every week and then at the end of the 6 weeks they will all go into a mini book. I've already started work on the book - bit of a rainbow theme going on.
Here are a couple of close ups (I'm trying really hard to improve on my photography skills)
A piece of ratafia wrapper was adhered to one card, then I swirled crackle effect modelling paste by Pebeo on to both cards and added tiny chips of yellow card. Glossy Accents were added to the yellow chips, then everything was left to dry overnight . Next morning, I used stencil brushes to add Worn Lipstick Distress Ink over the whole thing and Walnut Stain to highlight the crackles and edges, wiping over to remove any ink from the yellow chips. Pearlescent glue in a candy pink was added to highlight the swirls and finally the letters were stamped with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and flowers attached with eyelets using my Crop-a-Dile.
