Ellen's Pin Sights Challenge


This Challenge is MONTHLY and based
on the Pinterst inspired photo in the
 Ellen's Classroom Blog






I made my design and white embossed, then I took 2 acrylic blocks, one I loaded with a puddle of water, the other I stamped the ombré ink pad on one half, and the other the hero ultra pink.  I loaded my waterbrush with water and quickly swooshed it around the image, slowly grabbing a teeny bit if color on the tip, lightest to darkest.. Then coming in later to add some dark touches near the bloom centers and where ever else I wanted to have darker areas of contrast.. I tried to hug the edge of the outer side of the images the best I could.


To JOIN in, you MUST use 
Ellen's Essentials products and add the 
Pin Sights badge to your blog!
This is an AWESOME way to have your Chance to win a RANDOM DRAW

Another One Layer Simplicity


One Layer Simplicity....
Watercolor...
Rich Blue Embossing ..
Fuschia .....

I think it is AMAZING...
If I do say so myself...
I am too picky for my own good... 
So when I think it is amazing, 
my heart SINGS!



I dabble when I watercolor....
I love ALL of the colors.. and I have to STOP
myself from dabbling them ALL over the card........


I love the soft yellow edged up to the greens...
just here and there....


I hope your evening is AMAZING too.
