And this week it's a colorway challenge. The colors are teal and yellow, chosen by Dream Teamer Kristi, so let's get started.
I've been trying to duplicate the lime green/muted violet colors of a hydrangea I saw at the San Francisco Flower Mart without much success until it occurred to me that using yellow matte embossing paste might give me the background I needed to achieve the soft colors I was looking for. I began by paste embossing the hydrangea stencil (LJ888) with yellow matte embossing paste. After allowing for drying time, I repositioned the clean stencil and added color with Splendor inks by Tsukineko.
I've embossed several other floral stencils with the yellow paste – some on colored card stock, others on white or cream and a few on patterned paper – and can't wait to color them.
After visiting the other Dream Team blogs, get to work and show us your take on the teal and yellow color challenge by linking your creation on the DREAM it UP! blog. Can't wait to see what you come up with.
