Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Navy, Gold and Pink


There is a fabulous color trio over at The Color Throwdown and I wanted to make sure to play along.  Not only did the colors inspire me the picture of the Fireworks did too.

 I decided to try and mimic all the streaks and colors in the sky with the splash watercoloring technique. At first I thought the flowers came out a bit too bold, but as I put the card together it started to grow on me.  I made my heart background with this very cool SU paper that works so well with Oxide inks. It does an ink resist.  I LOVE IT, but sadly I don’t believe it’s still available. I heat embossed my leaves with gold EP and punched them out with the coordinating SU punch.

I’m also linking this up over at The Paper Players where they have their 400th Celebration going on with prizes too. Congrats to The Paper Players for being around so long. We appreciate all your efforts and inspiration!

Finally, Once again over at CAS Watercolour where they have Splash Watercoloring technique challenge going on.

Thanks for stopping in…makes my day! Nanc’

Card Details: SU Flowers, leaves, and Punches, MFT Happy die and Heart die, Neat and Tangled Birthday stamp, SU background paper that I colored with Oxide inks, Nuvo drops and pink pearl accents.
