Mid month Inspiration for TTC#6 - Oak Leaf

Hello everyone,
Back today to share the mid month inspiration for The Twisted Challenge Blog!
This month the theme is Color palette and use an element in multiples of 3

Here's my inspiration for you!
Inspired by the leaf in the image, I wanted a leaf image..but do we ever have what we suddenly want?
Nope! So I borrowed it from my friend and went to town with it!

  • First I heat embossed a few leaves on watercolor paper. The stamp is Oak Leaf from Neat and Tangled.
  • Then I found the relevant distress inks, namely, Mustard seed, shabby shutters, spiced marmalade, fired brick and smooshed the embossed images into the inks...sprayed generous amount of water to blend it together.
  • I am not a fan of the soft faded look of watercolors..blame it on my crazy friend who made me love all bright colors!
  • And so I took another heat embossed leaf on Neenah solar white paper, and colored with Copics, like a stained glass piece.
  • I took my panel, flicked some left over colors from the smooshing. Glued the watercolored leaves.
  • I propped up the copic colored leaf on top of the water colored leaves with foam tape.

To bring the colors together, I rummaged through the Craftreat Ombre Basics paper pack and pulled out the red, green, yellow and orange sheets and created a mat for my panel.

You can see the dimension of the copic colored leaf..and the crazy flicking of color!

I have linked the paper packs below..Also you can check out my Store front on Amazon! Yes! I have a page on Amazon that links to all my favorite products you can buy .. all from Amazon!

Faux Water Colored Sunflowers -TTC#6

Welcome back to my blog! Poor thing awakes when I have a new challenge post to make!
Diwali was a hectic affair and hence there was such a dearth of mojo post Diwali. If I had no Challenge card, I would probably not have crafted at all!

So lets get into the card!!
The theme this month at The Twisted Challenge Blog is Color palette and as a twist, you have to use an element/image in multiples of 3!

For this challenge, I have a Faux Water Color card!
My flowers are in groups of 3.. 
So what does a faux Water Color card mean? Read on below:

I took my favorite Sunflower stamp from Papertrey Ink, and dye inks. Even Distress inks would work amazing in this!

Take Watercolor paper..most important to use. 
I stamped the bigger sunflower with Altenew ink, Warm sunshine
took the smaller flower, and stamped over it with Ruby red ink.
The leaves were stamped with Forest Glades.
Once stamped, I sprayed the life out of that paper with water mister..
Let it dry.
I felt the leaves lost all the color, so I over stamped the leaves back with Forest glades, and didn't bother lining up. It gave a more dreamy look to the card!

The shape die cut is from Spellbinders and Grateful die cut and stamped sentiment are from MFT!

Do drop by our challenge blog and take part in it! We have a fun goody bag sponsored by Me and Saumya for our winner!
