I must say that the inspiration board for September’s Pin-sights Challenge is absolutely gorgeous. In my view the best I’ve seen! So many possibilities….
In the end, I went with something totally outside my comfort zone – I created a watercolour background using a number of colours from the board.
When I was happy with how that was looking, I added some gold watercolour – love how this turned out!
I cut out the tree using the Ellen Hutson/Essentials by Ellen Geo tree die set and used it to cover a section of my finished background. Finally, I added an Essentials by Ellen sentiment to complete the card. I was toying with adding a few stars to the background, but decided to keep it CAS.
And the added bonus? I still have enough of my background left to use in more cards, so don’t be surprised if you see it make a reappearance here before Christmas!
I’m also entering this into this week’s Less is More challenge as the theme is ‘watercolour’.
Thanks for stopping by!
