I found some time to play with the Essentials by Ellen September Pin-Sights Challenge this weekend. I just love the inspiration this month.
So many directions to go but I was really looking for a reason to finally use my Essentials By Ellen Mondo Peony stamps. I started stamping and white embossing the flowers and leaves onto a piece of Bristol cardstock. The original plan was to watercolour the embossed images with Distress Ink but before I even started my ZIG's were calling my name. I used Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, Pale Green, and Yellow Green ZIG's to colour the images. I added some sequins filled with Silver Stickles and a few Neptune Nuvo Crystal Drops (I see a lot more of those in my shopping cart). I spritzed the entire panel with some Sparkle Sheer Glimmer Spritz to finish it off. I was having some trouble getting a good photo--do you ever find soft blues hard to capture in the lens? I do. So I decided to retake the photos and somehow with all my fussing I managed to smudge the Stickles--ugh! Leson learned make sure everything is dry before you handle your cards!
