I’m so excited to share a project that I designed especially for today’s Ellen Hutson LLC – Essentials by Ellen May Release! I inked up the new Mondo Sakura by Julie Ebersole.
If you’re familiar with Julie’s Mondo collection they’re big + beautiful!
My card base is a standard A2 size (4.25 x 5.5). Look at the glorious size of that beautiful bloom! I stamped it with Versafine Onyx on Ranger Watercolor paper. They’ve been watercolored with Spun Sugar + Picked Raspberry. The stems and leaves have been colored with Zig Clean Color Markers Pale Green • Emerald Green.
The Hello and you have been stamped with Versafine Onyx. The Hello almost looks like die cut letters, doesn’t it?! As I pondered what I was going to use for the ‘wonderful’ die cut available with the Mondo Sakura Designer Dies, it hit me to use my leftover bits of watercolor paper. I brushed some swipes of Picked Raspberry on it and die cut away!
The background is compliments of Twisted Citron using the smooshing technique. I loaded up a large acrylic blocked with Twisted Citron, spritzed it with water and literally smooshed my watercolor panel onto it. I hit it with my heat gun and did it again to get the desired consistency. The black flecks are ala Kuretake Ganzai black. I saturated a wet watercolor brush with the paint. I used the side of an acrylic block, and tapped the paintbrush (situated directly above the area I wanted to fleck). This gives such nice round droplets, doesn’t it?
I can’t wait to see all the other gorgeous New Release inspiration!
