This shot might have been taken from our canoe!
Hello friends, I'm so happy to be playing along in Altenew's Inspiration Challenge again! Tenia's photo from her vacation sure did inspire me today!
Here's a little closeup so you can see how I added the movement in my water! wink.
With Altenew's Geo Steps 3D embossing folder!
All the branches are from Pen Sketched Silhouette, stamped in a combo of Butternut, and yellow ochre inks.
I blender-brushed on strokes of Caribbean Sky, and Persian Blue for the water.
A few splatters of ink, and a dash of sequins for glimmer, and
my card is done! All I'm missing are the ducks!
What a pretty card Michele! I love the colors and that background with the embossing folder is amazing! Such a peaceful and tranquil look to this card...love it!! Hugs. :0)
The feel of that texture must be lovely. Using the embossing folder for movement was very clever (when are you not?). It makes your golden foliage really stand out.
Love those simple colours and gorgeous texture. The sequins are a perfect finishing touch xx
Love love love how you have used these colours Michele, perfect 'artsy' feel for Tenia's inspiration!
Another awesome background, Michele! It does look like ripples in the water!
You've captured the essence of that photo perfectly! Beautifully done, Michele. Love every marvelous detail!
Gorgeous card, Michele! I love that you chose this 3D embossing folder for your background...it really does add movement to your design! Beautiful color palette, too! xx
Oh the inspiration picture looks wonderful. So pretty and calm. Your card is gorgeous. Leave it to you to find and use the most entrancing embossing folders. How cool is this one?? The blue of the water really highlights your branches, too. And the sentiment is perfect. Wonderful card, Michele.
Glad your passport is all ready, we are getting closer!!
First off, I love the inspiration photo and that you guys have a canoe. But what I love even more is your card! Wow, you got the colors perfectly from the photo. Love the die cuts you used and love that background. You know I always say this, but it is so true-you never ceased to amaze me! Hugs, Brenda
Oh that water is clever! What a serene creation...
That embossing folder is fantastic, Michele, especially the way you added color to it for the water. You are so good at those Altenew inspiration challenges.
Geo Steps 3D embossing folder to add movement of water! You ARE so clever, Michele! Beautiful colors, texture, and shine!
The watery background is fabulous and I love the ochre inks on the plants…..serene and stylish!
Cool take on the challenge photo. Great use of the colors.
I have no idea how I have missed these posts Michele. So glad I didn't miss this one as it is amazing. Fabulous watery movement background, striking colours and a unique and stunning card x.
So so pretty!! Thanks for playing along in the Altenew June Inspiration Challenge!!
