AQUA EGG

Last week I was delighted to learn that I had won Color Throwdown#383 and consequently am their guest designer this week.  And how lucky I am to create a card in my favorite colors - wouldn't you just love to be having your cuppa in that gorgeous mug??


I smooshed a piece of watercolor paper with Ranger salty ocean and broken china spritzed with water.  While that was drying, die cut the egg in Michael's gold metallic paper.  Attached a piece of acetate to it and then cut out 3 more eggs which were then glued together.  Sprinkled some MS glitter in this and adhered the watercolor piece to it.  Carefully cut away the excess watercolor paper and was left with my lovely blue egg.  Finished with a stitched rectangle for a mat.  My inspiration was the shape of the scallops and glittery bits in the cup photo - and of course the colors.
Check out Color Throwdown#385 and join their challenge this week.  Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.
