5/3 Purple Breezes

It's all over SU Blogland! Patty Bennett came up with a way to color the 5th Ave Floral set that makes one positively sigh with joy upon seeing it. You simply stamp the flowers with white craft ink into Shimmery White paper, heat emboss it with White Embossing powder, mist it to dripping wet and then, use an Aqua Painter to touch drops of reinker to your petals. Of course, I am waaaaay too impatient to do each petal individually so I just kind of glubbed and globbed the Aqua Painter all over the place and it still turned out pretty good. I used Pale Plum and Perfect Plum initially. Then, I decided to add a few drops of Baja Breeze into the mix, too. By that time, my rose was pretty much dry, so I just used a pretty wet Aqua Painter to add it in where ever I had some white space. I LOVE it, don't you? I can totally see why this technique is so addicting. Each flower is unique and depending on the amount of water or reinker that you use . . . you can achieve totally different but beautiful results.

I recently became a member at a place called Stampin' Addicts. I set up a gallery and now this is my first Stampin' Addict Color Challenge card. The challenge colors were Pale Plum, Perfect Plum and Baja Breeze. The beautiful sheet of Baja Breeze colored paper that you see in the background is actually designer series paper that is from the pack called Urban Oasis. I LOVE that paper!
