Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Lovely Leaves and Mixed Media challenge


Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon and Crushed Olive were the inks I chose to play with after seeing the inspiration photo for the  Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge


Penny Black Stencil Promenade is the main focal point, with Life's Messages as the sentiment.
I added some Sparkling clear sequins from PPP and a splash of Gold color shine from Heidi Swapp.
Just a touch of washi completed  the whole thing.
I played with some heaving inking and water with the stencil...then double stamped the sentiment for the shadow effect.



Thanks for stopping by.
Looking forward to a busy week...Have a GOOD one!

  14. Talk about eyecatcher. Phenomenal colors together and your watercolored piece is perfection. I'm in love with the brief glimpse of white still peeking through. And there are leaves too! Thanks for gracing our gallery at MMCC this month, Laura Jane.
