Next it was on to creating the card:
Using some Pan Pastels (in the colors of the "rainbow" seen in the bubbles), I rubbed a bit here and there onto the paper and on the vellum circles I diecut. I also used the regular and pierced dies to create some additional circles. Once assembled I selected my focal image...
Yeah, I like Big Cups (Matcha bowls) and I cannot lie! I stamped the sentiment onto the largest vellum circle then painted the backside with some Olive Green acrylic paint. After that dried, I burnished it with the end of the paintbrush to create the "white" for contrast and dimension.
Look at those gorgeous trails and pools of matcha powder...MMMM...It's a bit difficult to see the shimmer here, but there is a golden sheen all over this panel from the Pan Pastels. I decided it needed a bit of coppery color, so I splattered a bit of Bronze Silk on too. Beads of Journey Glaze were also randomly placed on the piece for fun.
I mounted this piece "wonky style" onto some vellum, added Green Olive satin ribbon, then applied it to another panel of watercolor paper. It was mounted onto a Hazelnut Blend card base.
