Glimmer Mist Painted Lotus Blossoms


The Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoast is to choose an item from Posters.com for your inspiration. I am so in love with the new Mother Teresa sets this month from Our Daily Bread Designs, so I couldn't help but pick one of the posters with lotus blossoms!!! I chose this poster, with the pink lotus and black frame. Using masking, I stamped the lotus several times with Stazon Jet Black, and watercolored using Glimmer Mist for everything but the water and the flower centers. I used Rose Tea to paint the blossoms, Mustard Seed for the foliage, and sprayed Glacier over everything when done......yes, I am addicted to Glimmer Mist.!!! Unfortunately, I couldn't get the true sparkle to come through on camera, even though I took about 25 different photos....argh! The pink is very irridescent in real life!
This card layout is from Card Positioning Systems, Sketch CPS122. I tried to keep it simple, so added quite a bit of paper piercing instead of over-doing the embellishments. The ribbon is from May Arts, and the black pearls are from Hero Arts. The white and image layers are watercolor paper.....the frames are Basic Black.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful 4th of July!!!! God Bless!
