Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - New Beginnings

IMG_7742


It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!



The New Beginnings LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I used Essential by Ellen Bold Blooms for this card ad watercoloured them with Gelatos.  I coloured directly onto the die cuts with the Gelatos--gold, aqua, orange and yellow. Then I spritzed the die cuts with water and went over them in a circular motion with my paint brush.  I went back i with the gelatos again where needed and used the brush again without spritzing--the brush was still wet.
