(2016 c27) Share the Love with Essentials by Ellen and Winnie & Walter Day 1

Share the Love with Essentials by Ellen and Winnie & Walter Day 1 Floral Challenge



For today’s background I am using a freebie from Winnie & Walter, LLC, at www.winniewalter.com. It is from



The Gossip Column: The Geometric Generation Digital Elements, called Facetnating.

After printing several of the designs I took them to a print shop and had them printed with a Lazer printer on my 110 lb. Card stock from Walmart.  Then I put it through my heat laminator with silver foil.  (It is hard to tell, but the black lines in the photo are foiled silver.)  Then I painted with Color Burst Liquid Metals, Metalic Sky & Metalic Saffron  Coloring with Liquid Metals is fast becoming one of my favorite techniques!

For the flower I stamped Essentials By Ellen Mondo Hydrangea & heat embossed with white EP.  Then I used Color Burst Concentrated Powders: Violet and Ultramarine mixed with water and a little Gum Arabic.  I cut out the hydrangea and a piece of pink fun foam for mounting with the matching die.

Challenges Entered:

EllenHutson: Day 1 – Florals


Winnie&Walter: Day 1 – Florals
