Thursday's Drem Scheme

It's thursday one again and the challenge is orange and blue, Mother's Day. Orange and blue are two of my favorite colors and it was my turn to come up with a challlenge. So here's my latest creation that will be mailed tomorrow to my MOM.

To start I used a piece of white card stock, I then mixed a small amount of matte orange paste to regular paste to get a nice apricot color. Then I pasted the image using the Hibiscus Stencil (LL 478). I let this dry and then repositioned the stencil over the dry image. Pounce glue over the entire image (Palette Stamp and Stick Glue Pad works the best for me) lightly.

Using a small paint brush I used Glacier Metallic F/X pulling the color from the inside out on the leaves. For the Hibiscus flower I used Kimono Red F/X in the center of the flower pulling from the inside out, then using Moonstone F/X i pulled the color lightly from the outside of the petals towards the center allowing some of the base color to show through. The center of the flower was done with Goldfinch F/X.

I hope you will all go to the rest of the Dream Teams blogs and check them out and leave us all a little love as you go. Tune in next Thursday to see what new and exciting creations we come up with.
