Hello! Are you ready for the new color challenge at Dynamic Duos #68? We're starting out with one of my favorite colors...Perfect Plum. And you get to choose the other half of the duo. Here's the graphic for this week's challenge.
As it turns out...I love it!
This card was so much fun to create. Well, that is, once I finally decided on a theme/layout. I started out in a completely different direction, but I could NOT get it to work. Then I remembered an ink splatter technique I'd seen recently. It worked!
HERE is a link to the video tutorial...you just might want to try it. :)
After adhering the strip of kraft cardstock, I pulled out my SU watercolor crayons (discontinued now), and wet a small paintbrush with water. I loaded it up with color - plenty of water & crayon - then started tapping the brush as I held it over my card. I used 2 crayons...Perfect Plum & More Mustard, using 2 different size brushes in order to vary the size of the droplets.
I added the chevrons and the "hello" die cut after I splattered. Those chevron pieces? They're from the new SU chevron border punch. I just bought this punch and couldn't wait to use it. Love it. :)
Hey, now it's time for you to click over to Dynamic Duos and see what the rest of the Dynamos have created. Just follow THIS link. Ok?
Thanks so much for taking a look!
