{ Hello–color challenge }

Hi, here I am again. I saw this color challenge from Just Us Girls blog and I had to play. I received a few Color Burst colors and I had to give them a try. The one used here is called Ultramarine Blue. I watched some videos on YouTube to figure out how to use it. I used watercolor paper that was painted with white gesso, left over from another project, just to try it out. I spritz water over the paper and then squeezed the bottle gently over the top. I should have taken a photo before I layered all the other elements over the top.

I love to mix and match things, especially my stamps. I picked several from my mixed media/journal box and went to work using only colors from the challenge: Teal, Aqua, Navy. The stamps I used (in order that I stamped them): Love Score, Really Useful Stamps – Circles, Flourish 1, Silhouette 15 (butterflies), Everyday Words (hello). Not too bad, right. The first two were stamped with Navy ink and the rest with Aqua. I distressed the edges and the navy mat under the watercolor paper. The flower with the center are teal. I added a few sequins to match.
