To choose my colors, I used the packaging that came with the stamp set and my filled out Spectrum Noir color chart. To make my color chart, I printed the chart onto a piece of Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock for Alcohol Markers and then filled in the colors of my markers. This serves two purposes (1) I know what colors I have, (2) it shows me the exact color I will get on this cardstock.
Next, I scribbled markers onto a non-stick surface (CR8, CR10, and DR7). I spritzed the colors with alcohol, and used a paintbrush to pick up color and spread onto the pedals. The embossed image will act as a resist.
I cleaned the brush in-between color families with clean alcohol and a paper towel. For the steams, I used CG3 and JG2.
To "paint" the sky, I used a flat brush. I was covering more area and I wanted create a whimsical movement for the background.
Here are all the colors I used:
For the layer behind the soft poppies, I used metallic cardstock with one of the new Embossing Folders floral frenzy.
Thanks for visiting!
Take care and STAY POSITIVE!
