ELLEN HUTSON PINSIGHTS GUEST DESIGNER

I am so honored to be one of Ellen Hutson's Pinsights designer this month.  When Laurel sent me the challenge photo, I was so excited to start creating with these gorgeous colors.




The center flowers in the pinks and yellows were the inspiration for my card using Julie's mondo peony.  I used distress oxide inks in worn lipstick and fossilized amber to watercolor a background piece. Die cut with the stitched rectangles and kept them together with some washi tape on the back and stamped the peony on the bottom right - used my Misti and stamped it several times to get a nice black impression.  I also stamped the peony on a piece of vellum.  Then I adhered the watercolor piece with a bit of non-permanent adhesive to the center of the card base.  Placed the vellum over matching it all - then put the stamp over the piece of vellum for just the right placement in my Misti.   Removed the card and vellum and stamped the peony on the base.  Put some thin adhesive dots all around the frame and adhered that down and then put the center piece in - and voila!! it all matched up!!!  Added the clear drops, some Spectrum Noir to just the center and the Nuvo dots and done.  This will be one of those cards for my stash to add a sentiment when needed.

I hope you'll play along with the Pinsights Challenge this month  and fun with these gorgeous colors!  You must use Ellen Hutson products - and there's a random drawing for a $50 gift certificate.
