Here is the challenge board for this month:
|Words and Paintery challenge for February, 2016|
To make the background, I used watercolor paper (140 lbs.) and tore it into two parts. For the top section with the picture, I used Prima's "Checker" stencil and embossed with white embossing powder. Next, I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst spray in "Ponderosa Pines Olive" and color shot in "Blue Hawaiian Blue", and they actually have a resist effect over embossed areas. Around the edges of the watercolor paper sections, I used Ranger Distress Paint in "Black Soot". After layers and layers of ink and water, I built up the background.
For the bottom half, I sprayed it with Prima Color Bloom Spray in "Pressed Petal" then used Liquitex Glass Bead Gel and Prima's "Circular Lattice" stencil. After the gel was dry, I used Ranger Distress Paint in "Black Soot" around the edges while spraying it with water to allow it to drip.
I glued my two sections of watercolor paper over a piece of black sparkly paper that I had in my stash.
The flowers on the page are "Coconut" KAISERCRAFT Blooms and Wild Orchid Crafts white roses. I made and cut the title, the two circles, and the embellishment with gems with my Silhouette Portrait. Finally, the two fancy "leaf" embellishments were actually a pair of earrings I haven't used in years.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for visiting!
