Rose Watercolor painting
This past weekend I was fortunate enough to go take a Color Burst class with Ken Oliver. He's a great instructor and we all had lots of laughs. The class was held at the Scrapbook Village in Glasgow, KY. You can also have a scrapbooking retreat there at the Butterfly Haven Retreat with some of your closest friends.
The background die is a Die-Versions die (Pebbles Background) that was inked up with VersaMark, covered with Sparkle embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle, and heat set. The side of the card was die cut using a Sue Wilson Designs die (Gemini Collection:URSA).
To highlight the negative spaces of the die cut more, I added a strip of watercolor paper, using more Blue Color Burst, to the inside. I also added a small strip of rick rack on the inside to cover the seam.
The sentiment, a Memory Box die (Thanks), was also die cut from watercolor paper. I added a darker Blue wash to it so it would stand out more and used my favorite technique to add dimension behind it - fun foam.
I love learning new things! Any suggestions for improvement would be much appreciated.
