August Colours

Green was the silence, wet was the light.


Challenge filled with fall inspired palette & a thought about rain.


Inspired by the wet quote - a wedding in the rain.

My favourite part was spraying the Snipart irregular background chipboard with Tim Holtz Honey distress ink, and adding clear embossing powder whist it was still wet. It has given a beautiful effect of rain, as only parts of the lattice have retained the gloss.


Using only products from my craftbox stash.

Finished with ivory, yellow and teal blooms.


Thank you for lookig, I read all your comments,
