ruby blues!

A simple color palette of ruby and aqua, along with a little dry and wet embossing……

I used ruby red reinkers mixed with a little water to create a wash of color on a piece of Fabriano watercolor paper.  Starting at the top of the paper I brushed the color on full strength and gradually added more water to get the dark to light wash.

The flowers (from SU) were stamped and embossed in white.  The main panel was mounted on aqua mist, then ruby red.  An ek success punch was used on the bottom.  The sentiment is from Flourishes.

The embossed panel uses a cuttlebug embossing folder (a new one included in the Romance collection found at hsn) – I embossed it with the design on the side. 

Thanks for stopping by!
