I am on the purple team over at Eclectic Ellapu and for the month of July our theme is all about the beach. This is actually a napkin that I dolled up with rose red, elegant eggplant and island indigo. 13 of us went to Belize in June. We rented a house and had the time of our lives. About a month before we went, my husband and I hosted a get together to finalize details of our trip. I bought these napkins. I sponged rose red on two of the shells and for the coral, I used the eggplant marker and traced over the top....then using a damp tissue, lifted and softened the colors....getting it to bleed some. The edges were sponged with island indigo. To use the tissue, I peeled it until it was only one layer....and added it to a piece of encyclopedia paper that I glued onto white cardstock. Some island indigo ribbon and a bit of burlap for the beachy theme. The sentiment is from Unity's empowered words.
Head on over to Eclectic Ellapu and play along! We'd love to see your creations!
