What I did today between orthodontist appointments and flute lessons ...


I'm totally feeling the love for the BS Textured Impressions folders! I applied a light coat of So Saffron on the Finial Press folder and ran a piece of Vanilla through the Big Shot. The result is a really, really cool textured piece of cs that looks like an old piece of aged textured wallpaper. It's fabulous IRL -- the scan does NOT do it justice! I don't know what the name is for this, but I think of it as 'color embossing.'

I layered Soft Suede, Ruby Red, So Saffron and More Mustard cs. The ribbon is layered 1" So Saffron twill, Soft Suede polka-dot grosgrain and Riding Hood Red taffeta. Who knew that the RHR taffeta ribbon is almost a dead-on match for Ruby Red cs?

The leaves are from Lovely as a Tree, watercolored and cut out of Vanilla cs.

Stamps: Gifts of the Earth, Lovely as Tree

Paper: Soft Suede, Ruby Red, So Saffron, More Mustard and Vanilla

Ink: Black, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa, Sahara Sand, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke

Accessories: Big Shot, Textured Impressions Finial Press folder, brads and buckle from Aged Copper HPH, dimensionals, aquapainter, 1" So Saffron twill, Soft Suede polka-dot grosgrain and Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon

Techniques: watercolor

Jacki took my exact words right out of my mouth when I saw this creation. I totally love the So Saffron on the Impression Folder -- this one is going to be cased for my October 24 class, I kid you not. Love this color combo, and your watercoloring of course. You go girl!!
