It's that time again--the PTI Bloghop for September. This month's inspiration photo did just that. What wonderful colours! I actually combined both of the following colour "recipes", and did not really use the sketches. I was really pleased with how this watercoloured poinsettia turned out. (I like it a lot better than the background, which went through 3 different re-makes before settling on the Darice embossing folder.) See full card below.
I used PTI's "Year of Flowers-Poinsettias" and stamped it in Versamark, then heat embossed using Ranger's "Liquid Platinum" embossing powder. Then I watercoloured it using my watercolour paints, mixing the colours the close as I could to make Autumn Rose and Avocado green. The sentiment is from "Silent Night", and heat embossed with white powder. I used the new Raindrops to fill in the center of the flower. Cardstock is Soft Stone and Autumn Rose.
Thanks for looking!
