Silver wreathPosted: November 6, 2015
On the PB blog this week the designers have been sharing favourite colour schemes. I mix up the Christmas decorating at our place by choosing a different colour scheme each year. I have a collection of silver baubles and gold baubles so I usually pick one or the other then add a colour. We have had red and gold, red and silver, green and silver, etc. One of my favourite combinations is blue and silver. I love the way blue sets off the silver accents. It is like the night sky.
My card features a silver embossed wreath and greeting on a blue watercoloured background. I used three blues from my gansai tambi watercolour set, layering and blending them over the embossing.
By letting the paint dry a little between applications I was able to build up more colour in some places to accentuate the edges of the pretty silver wreath.
