Calla Lily Sparkling Color Block
I had a chance to play along with Monday's Try A New Technique Challenge #334 on Splitcoast. The challenge was to Color Block, with a Twist. For my color block, I put Distress Ink Spun Sugar dye ink onto an acrylic block. For the twist, I sprayed the block with Tsukineko's Sheer Shimmer Mist. Then, I stamped the acrylic block onto Neenah Crest Solar White cardstock. I framed this with black cardstock.
The cally lilies image is from the 2010 Floral release from Rubbernecker Stamps, and the Thinking of You sentiment is from the 2011 Friends release. I stamped the calla lilies onto Neenah Crest Solar White cardstock with Marvy Black dye ink. I colored them with Copic markers. Carefully I cut around the flowers, and pop-dotted portions of the image. The sentiment was stamped directly onto the color block. A sheer white ribbon was attached to the color block panel. Textured white paper and more black cardstock frame the card.
I love calla lilies. Such a reminder of the beautiful wedding we had last summer.
I'm so glad you stopped by my blog today.
