Welcome to another fun blog hop from the team at Around the World on Wednesday. How clever is our awesome leader – Angie Mckenzie? She comes up with the best challenges. Today, around the world, we are forming a rainbow. We have some special guests hopping with us today so you will enjoy lots of monochromatic projects. I can’t wait to see what everyone has created.
The rainbow has been divided according to Time Zone so I’m in the yellows with a bit of black and white added to the mix. Here’s the breakdown of colours around the world.
I started off by creating the background by watercolouring a piece of Shimmery White cardstock with Mango Melody ink. Once dry, I stamped the Very Versailles vine in Bumblebee ink over the entire piece. Then I die cut it using the Many Medallions die. The Basic White matte has been embossed with the Subtle Embossing Folder which is retiring. This has been one of my most used folders and is great for creating linen-look backgrounds.
The sunflower was coloured using a combination of So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends. The Celebrate Sunflowers dies come with a die for the large flower as well as an outline die. The detailed outline added more definition and I liked this look against the True Love Designer Series Paper which I can’t seem to get away from.
To create the embossed sentiment, I inked the stamp in Versamark ink and then in Tuxedo Black, after which I heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.
