Metallic Water Colored Image

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. The challenge theme is Embellishment Starting With Your Initial. I could not think of what to create after I learned about the challenge theme. Good thing that most of my co-DT members has a name that starts with M, and somebody mentioned metallic. Aside from metallic, I thought about mirror, mini clothespin and mini brad.

Our sponsor is My Besties by Sherry Baldy. I printed the image on Arches Water color paper. I colored the image using Karin Deco Brush metallic markers. I did not color the image directly with these markers. I applied the pigment on a plastic film and picked the color with a brush. It was a challenge coloring this image due to the small spaces I have to apply the color to. 

I created the window panel by first applying Coliro Pearl Deep Space water color. I heat set this to dry. I created the window using My Favorite Things LJD Rectangle Peek-A-Boo Window Die-namics. I did partial die cutting technique to be able to extend the length of the window. I painted the stitched frame created by this die with a Finetec Pearl Gold water color. 

Do you remember grommets? I still have this in my stash including the Making Memories Eyelet Setter Grommet tool kit. I added this metal embellishment to the corners of the die cut window. 

I stamped the sentiment on a pink mirror card stock using Versafine Onyx Black ink. To prevent shifting while stamping, I used the Misti Stamping Tool. The stamp is from Ink Blot Bubble Words stamp set. I poured clear embossing to the stamped sentiment then heat set it. I fussy cut the sentiment leaving a small border around it.

I adhered the colored digi. to the back of the water colored window panel, making sure it is centered. I adhered the mirror sentiment with foam tape. I adhered this to a top folding A2 note card. I drew diagonal lines using a silver pen. I stamped small hearts using a Tsukineko Delicata Rose Gold Pigment ink.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a SAFE, blessed, brilliant and creative day!
