Juste pour le plaisir / Just for fun

Après avoir travailler plein de projets pour les prochains défis de DT, j'avais envie de faire quelque chose rien que pour le plaisir de le faire. J'ai naturellement choisi la technique des encres Distress sur papier aquarelle et de l'eau additionnée de la poudre Perfect Pearls. Et aussi j'ai utilisé un de mes nouveaux tampons Hero Arts.

After I worked on some future DT projects, I had a strong envy of making something just for the pleasure of making it. I've chosen my favorite technique of Distress inks on watercolor paper and pearlized water. I also used one of my new Hero Arts stamps.

Matériel: cdc Migros, papier aquarelle Canson et Bazzil; tampons HA; encres Ranger et Tsukineko; poudre à embosser Artemio; Perfect Pearls Ranger; perles Artoz; border punch Fiskars; butterfly punch Martha Stewart; machine à coudre

J'ai un peu expérimenté avec les couleurs des encres et j'ai utilisé (en montant) Tea Dye, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose et Vintage Velvet. Pour ajouter un peu plus de contraste sur les fleur j'y ai ajouté un peu plus de couleurs avec les Fantastix. Et je suis contente du résultat à part le plaisir que j'ai eu en faisant cette carte. Elle va aussi participer au nouveau défi de HA qui est "Keeping in Touch". Bon weekend à tous!

I experimented slightly with colors and used (from bottom to top) Tea Dye, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose and Vintage Velvet. To add some more contrast to the flowers I added some more colors with a Fantastix tool. And I like the final result apart from the evident pleasure I had during the process. I'll enter it also into the new monthly HA challenge which is "Keeping in Touch". Have a nice weekend!
