I love to pull my color choices from paper pads and/or color mood boards before I start my projects, and today was no exception. I have a very “grown up”paper pad in my stash from My Minds Eye that I haven’t used before called Market Street. It is full of very rich colors like teal, chartreuse, cranberry and blush. Along with brassy gold and a dark, almost black, charcoal. I decided on one of the lighter sheets of paper for my base layer, that had a playful arrow pattern in many colors. When I trimmed it down I noticed that I loved the strip of brass colored stripes on the back and decided to save it to add back in.
I cut a second smaller layer from Neenah Solar Bright White cardstock and ink blended on the right half with tumbled glass and peacock feathers distress oxide ink. I made a stencil by diecutting the individual cloud dies from other PP sets, Summer Sunshine and Rabbit Cafe. After cutting them out randomly and several times from a piece of shiny cardboard, I inked the clouds onto my blue sky.
Thank you for dropping in, Davina
