It took long enough but I finally finished a layout that is not destined to be a kit or a class. This was me just playing around with some of the goodies I have laying around. Chipboard from way back when that I dug out for a challenge on the Twisted Tuesday Challenges Blog. I first colored the chipboard with chalk ink (red)/distressing ink (yellow) and then went over it with my Wink of Stella colored markers. On the heart, I decided to cover the whole thing with glossy accents and it looks so shiny and the shimmer from the Wink of Stella pens are still noticeable.
Next, I inked the Petaloo Color Me Crazy Wild Roses with distressing ink and colored the centers with yellow Wink of Stella brush. Then comes the fun part, I sprayed the flowers with water using my Tim Holtz mini mister and the colors just spread and meld into each other giving the flowers a shimmery watercolor look. I let them dry on their own...kids to pick up and drive around helps with drying time ;) Did the same with the smaller flowers but reversed the colors.
