Ashwini has been entering our challenges for the some time now with truly remarkable offerings. She has been crowned Gossip Queen with this outstanding card and in fact Taheerah (a former Leading Lady herself) told me I needed to have Ashwini as a Leading Lady which just affirmed something I was already considering. Ashwini is a clever, surprising and unique artist and I am really excited to see what she will be creating this month as she takes us on an adventure of her own design on Saturdays on the w&w blog.
Please give Ashwini a big round of applause to welcome her as she steps onto the stage for her first performance as our August Leading Lady!
For my first card, I started with a watercolor panel. I drew a curved line using a pencil, stamped my images on the curve, heat embossed them white. I them colored them using Perfect Pearls. I then added a few splatters, after letting everything dry completely.
Using Perfect Pearls is a very easy way of adding shine and style to your card. They are versatile, and the pigment forms a beautiful watercolored effect.. and the shine is simply gorgeous! They are perfect to color outline stamps, and In Bloom: Carolina's Florals with Angelica Suarez, which has beautiful outlined flowers is just perfect!
Have a fantastic, creative week!
