Hi! Soooo have you been playing along with The Daily Marker 30 Day challenge for this month? This is one of my absolute favorite challenges because, let’s be honest, I love to color, and any excuse to color every single day is totally something I can get behind. Another perk: gives me a reason to play with stamps that are not for an assignment. I get to just play because I wanna. 🙂 Case in point: The Wreath of Roses set from Lil Inker Designs. This set is a new one for me, and I have to say… it might be one of my absolute favorite Lil Inker sets. It’s gorgeous.
To start, I die cut and heat embossed that beautiful floral wreath from Wreath of Roses using Platinum embossing powder onto Arches Cold Press watercolor paper. Next, I watercolored the pretty florals using my Daniel Smith watercolors in shades of Nickel Azo Yellow, Buff Titanium, and Quinacridone Coral. (I decorated our mantel with some fall decor last week, so I’ve had autumnal color schemes on the brain!) Love this color combo!
After I had finished watercoloring, I wanted a simple layout, so I simply popped up the wreath with dimensional foam tape onto a creamy linen card base and added a die cut platinum shimmer Thanks from Papertrey Ink’s Big Basics line. The final touch was a double twine bow adhered with some Multi Medium Matte.
Well, that’s it for my first project using the spoils of the Daily Marker 30 Day challenge. If you are new to my blog, I will (be attempting to) post daily for the challenge on Instagram, so follow me @eamidgett to see my future projects! Thanks for stopping by, and have a marvelous day!
