So, with it having rolled around to Friday night, I wanted to get in the groove again. I'd had my eye on the Paper Players Tic-Tac-Toe challenge but had only single figure hours left to get it done. That made photographing the finished product in artificial light quite tricky and the beautiful Mint Macaron ribbon is looking a sage-grey - which it definitely isn't in real life!
I've played the bottom line: ribbon, mint macron and oval. What had also caught my eye during the week was the colour challenge at CAS: Colours and Sketches. Such a beautiful combination!
The colours made me think about the Best Thoughts set I have and my desire to experiment with using inks like watercolour. I love that big flower but wanted to make it really stand out. So I've blended Rose Red and Pink Pirouette with a brush and water to give some depth to the flower. Then I've tipped the stamens with white gel pen.
Update: So pleased that this card was chosen as A Cut Above at The Paper Players.
