Floral Design with a Boho Color Palette

Floral Design with a Boho Color Palette

I'm always fascinated with mixed media projects.  The textures and colors always make for interesting designs. Hi, it's Amy Tsuruta and if you've been following me, you know that I'm a clean and simple designer.  I'm always envious of the designers that can really pull together a mixed media cards.  Here's how I was inspired:


I combined the following products:

I started off with a watercolor panel.  I used my glass mat to pounce Distress Oxide - Tea Dye ink and then sprayed it with a bit of water.  I 'smooshed' the watercolor panel into the ink puddles until I was happy with the coverage and dried it using a heat tool.

I love the new Rattan Stencil.  It reminds me when I was in elementary school and for some reason I always wanted one of those large rattan chairs. You know the ones, right? The ones that look horribly uncomfortable to actually sit in? I love the stencil with white paste on the Tea Dye.

The Gardenia image was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor markers and a blender pen.  I always love the soft look of this technique.

I finished off my project with a sentiment from the Decaf Background set. To coordinate with my card, I went ahead and did the same process with the Tea Dye ink on the sentiment as I did with the base panel.

Thanks for stopping by today!
