Let's see the inspiration for the theme, The Rainbow Connection. The colours are divine...................
Well, I can truly say I suffered from 'First Designer Carditis'!! I made a few cards before I settled on this one!! You can see the extra cards at the end of the post.
Freestyle Collage is described on TCC blog as:-
-unrelated elements in a collection
-can be done in any style
Both parts of the definition give you so much freedom in this style.
The unrelated items........ wood grain and a branch, hearts, a button, sequins, a black sentiment and a rainbow colour grade. When you list the items you realise they are unrelated, but as card makers, we frequently bring disparate objects/techniques together to make a harmonious whole. (hopefully, ha ha)
As Freestyle Collage can be done in any style, I would call this one Cleanish and Layered.
The coloured background is hand painted using Peerless pigments and a water brush. The blue and purple are more dilute than the other colours because I wanted a similar value for each colour in the grade. The sentiment is white embossed and the branch is stamped with Hero Arts Dye Ink.
