celebrate in bold colors

Have you seen the bold and beautiful inspiration photo at Cure for the Monday Blues?


Not having enough bold and beautiful embossing powders, but wanting to work on a black background, I came up with another option.


Not having the word celebrate in a Winnie and Walter set (it's just coming out), I used one from Altenew's Super Script. Stamped it with white pigment ink and then took a paintbrush and watercolors and carefully painted over it. Vibrant, eh?

Added a heat embossed secondary sentiment and a strip of zebra print PP for some oomph.

Are you playing? Winnie and Walter are sponsoring the challenge in honor of their first birthday!

I'm also hooking up at Simon's Work it Wednesday for January where it's all about "New". Painting with watercolors on white pigment ink is new to me!
