Today on the SCS Inspiration Challenge, our inspiration piece was this:
I was inspired by the rich magentas and the green and white swirls and came up with this:
I used Purely Pomegranate SU! ink and Tattered Rose Distress Ink to watercolor the flower petals, Peeled Paint (Distress Ink) for the leafy parts around the center, and Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain (Distress Ink) to do the center. The swirls were painted with Peeled Paint.
As you can see I departed quite heavily from the light airy-ness of the inspiration piece. But after I started--it kind of got a mind of its own.
