Aqua Pigments = Happiness!

Hello there!  Our Inspiration Team just had a blog hop featuring Brutus Monroe Aqua Pigments and it makes me so happy to paint and play with them!  I just had to make another card!  Again, I used my new set called Best Mom by Altenew and heat-embossed it twice in gold onto a piece of Bristol Smooth watercolor paper.

Using just Red, Yellow, Blue and Black, I was able to paint my images, getting a variety of shades  by mixing the colors!  Creating the background is my favorite part, and I basically splashed very watered down Black all around the blossoms then spattered on droplets of water and more watery black ink!

My die-cut Grateful is from AC Moore and I glued together three of them to get the height, then mounted it to a strip of vellum upon which I’d stamped out an old PSX script stamp in Raven Detail ink.  In retrospect, perhaps that would be prettier embossed in gold like the flowers!  Oh well!  Next time!

I trimmed down my panel with Stitched Rectangle dies, then attached it to a layer of white and finally to a base card of Wagon card stock.  I’m happy with how my card turned out and hope that you’ve checked out the Aqua Pigments for yourself!  They’re big, beautiful bottles of happiness!
