Purple – Blue – Green

This is my final effort for the Double D challenge and I’m happy with the result on this one. I got the colours and a design that I personally really like. The flowers were made by die cutting a couple of different Memory Box dies from a background piece I made with some mixed media CS and inks. I sprayed the paper with water until saturated and then added the inks using purples, dark blue and some greens. Once it was fully dry I used some watered down gilded Opal Blaze, which when dry added a ton of shimmer to the surface. I die cut the oval opening using my new infinity die set from Hero Arts and some DSP from StampinUP. To get this the way I wanted it I went around the back of the oval and edges with foam tape and picked up the flowers and leaves so they showed through the oval. Then using more foam tape I popped up the entire piece onto the white card base. Added a few extra flowers and a sentiment (by Penny Black) and some pops of colour to a few flower centers and it was done. The way the colours blended when doing the background was interesting and adding the shimmer gave it something extra. Thanks for spending time with me today.
