One Layer Flowers
I've been sloshing Distress Inks around again, this time on a one layer card. I'm trying to use colour combinations that I wouldn't think to use (or that I think wouldn't work together) and I'm getting some surprisingly nice results. For this card I used Shaded Lilac, Faded Jeans, Pine Needles and Forest Moss. I start with a very wet brush loaded with Shaded Lilac, then without cleaning the brush, I pick up some of Faded Jeans. When it's half-dry, I drop in a bit more of the Faded Jeans. Then I did the same with the leaves: Pine Needles first, then Forest Moss (that was the surprising bit, I didn't think those two colours would work together but I like the effect).
I'm entering this into the new One Layer Simplicity Challenge - Fabulous Flowers;
