You Shine

Are you in the mood for Blue? I have a lot of blue to share today.

My friend Jeanne runs a challenge on Facebook called Art Nudge. You may know about it as I have talked about it previously. This card I did for Art Nudge #11.

This is the inspiration piece for the challenge.

I am once again using Nuvo Expanding Mousse in Worn Linen. I love this stuff, it is so fun to work with. My background is done with a loose watercolour.

I first die cut the pieces, the beige being Arches 140lb. Cold Press Watercolour Paper, and Navy cardstock using my Penny Black die.

For my water colouring I used my personal watercolour palette, using Cerulean Blue and Delft Blue. I mixed the Cerulean Blue for the lighter colour then added more pigment to get the medium colour, then dried with my heat gun.

Using my Stay-tion and the magnets to hold the stencil in place, I applied the expanding mousse using A Colorful Life Design stencil then heated the gel using my heat gun until it sizzled .... like bacon. :) I then added a bit of colour to some of the expanding mousse from my palette.

I layered my base card with the navy die cut panel, applied fun foam to the back of my watercolour panel using scor-pal tape and attached it to the navy background.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne, then added a few Jewel Drops to finish.

A reminder: I have Discount Codes that can be used for Scrap'n Stamp, being 10KIA and for A Colorful Life Design, being Kia10.

I hope you enjoyed this card today, and wish to thank you for your visit.
