It's Tuesday, that means it's time for a new Flourishes Challenge. Katie is our hostess this week and she wants us to use some kind of wood .... paper, embellishment, stamp... something that represents wood on your creation. Visit the Flourishes Blog to find out more details of how to play along with our challenge for a chance to win and also see what is on sale!
Check out how the team incorporated WOOD with their creations this week...
I pulled a piece of paper out of the new Authentique collection "Suave" for my wood element. I love this image, even though it features a little boy, it still reminds me of my dad. My father has such a love for fishing and he raised my brother and I as a single parent... with a lot of love and a lot of time spent fishing.
I did a little airbrushing... I enhanced the horizon line. I masked the top of the image and airbrushed B34 on the bottom. I airbrushed N4 on the top. I used the Fur Technique with my Copic Colorless Blender Solution to get the textured effect on the grey portion.
As usual, I added a liner on the inside with my left over scraps. Not sure what I'll end up using this card for, so I left the inside blank for now.
