I adhered 2 layers of paper onto a 12x12 piece of corrugated cardboard using Mod Podge. Once it dried, I peeled back the papers to reveal the cardboard. The cardboard was then sprayed with
Poppin' Pink and Urban Amethyst Flat Fabio sprays.The edges of the papers were torn in places and distressed.
Obviously Black Embossing powder was used to heat emboss the color onto the Sizzix die cut frames. The coverage is unbelievably wonderful! A true deep black at its darkest with a bit of sheen. The background paper was primed with clear gesso and all of the colors in the spray set were used to spatter, drip and spray.
The silk flowers, (purchased at Hobby Lobby and pulled off the stems) started off as a pale lavender color. I used the yellow on the outside, the purple in the very middle and a touch of pink on some of the edges of the petals. the variegated look turned out beautiful. The yellow on the lavender gave it a chartreuse kind of color. The Dusty Attic Foliage chipboard leaves were heat embossed using the Luminous Lemon embossing powder.
This is just a closeup of the flowers. The colors in this set are simply amazing. I love how the colors just soak in and bleed to create a faded effect on the silk flowers.
I used the stem of Blazing Black Flat Fabio spray to out line the file and tags to give them definition. I used the Luminous Lemon Flat Fabio spray to touch some of the edges of the background paper.
Luminous Yellow embossing powder was used to heat emboss the title Strong. Underneath is a die cut paper that resembles a torn notebook and that was painted using Blazing Black Magicals.
