This week's challenge Color Dare #311 was to use Ballerina, Saffron, Peacock with optional Gold.
Guidelines on Neutrals: White, Cream, Black, Gray, Kraft and Brown(s) are free to use. Unless they're listed in the challenge then you need to use them.
For me my favourite colour is Peacock and so when I was demonstrating Opaque Matte Texture Paste to my cardmaking class today (at an adult learning community centre), I grabbed the Peacock Ink. I didn't have my re-inker at class to drop a few drops of ink down on my All-Purpose Mat so I turned my ink upside down and splatted it there. I pulled some texture paste out of the tub with the long skinny Palette Knife and then moved it onto the inky section and mixed it in (as below) with the thicker palette knife.
After I Demoed the colour blending on the mat, I showed the stencil with a little butterfly cut out, quickly moved around and smeared it again and again (without rinsing the template between). With my left over peacock coloured texture paste I just smeared it over the White Daisy cardstock I had.
After the peacock coloured texture paste dried I cut it down slightly to be 3.75 inches x 3.75 inches. I backed it with Saffron Cardstock. I cut s 0.75 inch strip of Ballerina Cardstock and stuck on one of the saffron coloured long stickers from the Boutique Complements.
I cut it down and kept the left over piece. Then I punched out chipboard/card hello complement from the Boutique Complements and stuck it up on 3D Foam Tape. Later I may add some ribbon or other embellishments to it but I did like the simplicity of this card. A quick texture technique and BAM a card is made. I wanted to show the ladies at the class that you could do this quickly and easily and didn't need to use up much time.
