You've Got This 3D for Colour Throwdown

Happy Monday, Stampers! There is a lovely colour challenge on at Color Throwdown this week! (They always have lovely colour challenges, but this one was especially stunning!)

Peach, Black and White is one of those combinations that make you sit up and take notice!. I really like the inspiration photo here, especially the bold black and white checks. I wanted to do some watercolouring, so I chose You've Got This as my stamp set with the beautiful floral image that is just perfect for watercolouring. But more than that, I wanted to do some 3D layering of my flower as well, and this particular image gives the possibility of doing that. This is how it turned out:

  • I used an Aqua Painter with Peekaboo Peach ink from the ink pad lid for the image and a little Flirty Flamingo for the deep shadows. If you look hard you can see the 3D petals in the front, but I'll show you a better photo for that a little further down the page.
  • I stamped and fussy cut two flowers, identical images, so that I could cut some of the front petals from the second flower and add them to the corresponding areas on the front flower with Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. The missing areas on the second flower are covered up by the first flower. Here's a photo that helps you to see the 3 dimensional effect a little better:
