Altenew Inspiration Challenge Card

The photo for the inspiration challenge this month at Altenew is lovely....
I love the colors, and the way Erum embossed and colored those flowers!   

Here is my take on the challenge....
I created the background by rubbing Tim Holtz inks onto my craft mat, adding water, and dabbing the inks onto watercolor paper.  I repeated this with a few different colors, and dried them in between layers.  I added some gold from my Fine Tec gold palette of watercolor pigments.  Here is a close up of the background.  I tried to capture the way the gold pigments shimmer on the background, but it's difficult to capture with a photo.....

The flowers are from Altenew's Hibiscus Bouquet set.  I embossed them in gold, and watercolored them with FinTec gold pigments.  Then I fussy-cut them and added them to the die-cut oval panel from the background I had created.  I mounted this onto the wood panel (Altenew) stamped background.  The Love die is by Spellbinders.

 I added this card to the Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Thank you for stopping in.
