Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #29 - Dream


Good Morning Everyone,
I am sorry for being such a bad blogging friend - these two weeks here have been a bit of a rough one... on top of the strep that my son has - he now has the croup... (just when you thought things were getting better...) He is such a good little guy and is so sweet about taking his medicine and covering his mouth around his sister and going to the bathroom to wash his hands.... totally melts my heart. This morning around 4am when I was lying awake after being up with him for 2 hours during a cough attack - I went upstairs to surf around and suddenly saw Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #29 was posted - what a great therapy these CI's are... I just stayed up since I was already awake and played around with these beautiful colors.


I love these colors and together - they are so cool looking. I love love love this rich dark purple and the blue and teals together felt so mediterraean - so that's what I went with. I created some waves on photoshop and cut them out and colored and shaded them a little more with my Prisma color pencils. A few of the front waves are popped up on dimensionals.

I really want to try Copics - maybe I could ask Santa for some? (Dear Santa, if you are reading this - I have been mostly good - and I didn't mean to take all the Reeses cups out of my son's Halloween bag :)

I added an outline of stickles (Eucalyptus) to the edges of the waves. The sun are four circles layered (white, 3 organge) with dimensionals - the last circle was sticklized for just a little bit of shimmer. I was going to tie a bow - but instead just laid the purple ribbon across the purple cardstock. Maybe I should have gone the ribbon bow route - (still not sure). The sentiment "dream" is from Clear Stamps - (i think Heidi Grace?)

These colors were so much fun to play around with - can't wait to use them again.

I am so grateful to all of you for coming over for a visit and all the sweet comments you have left about my little one's health - I hope to come over and visit you all soon.

Hope you are all staying healthy and happy!

Ciao for now :)
Sankari
