There’s a little restaurant around the corner from my son’s home where all of their art work is done on newspaper print. When I was there a few months ago, I determined it was time that I give this technique a try. But, it actually took this week’s Colour Q’s challenge to motivate me to actually do it. I stamped the Fabulous Florets stem and leaves with Versamark onto the Modern Medley DSP and then black embossed the image. These base leaves served as a shadow behind the Lucky Limeade leaves. (I’ve really missed Lucky Limeade since it retired.) Once again, I’m reminded of how much I appreciate the high quality of SU paper; notice how I was able to curl the petals in order to give the flower added dimension. Finally, different sized pearls in the flowers’ centers added depth and texture.
