It is hard to believe that the half of 2017 has already passed.
We are in July and it means a new challenge at The Ton Challenge blog has started!!!
For this month Effie arranged a mood board to inspire you.
The pictures are so pretty, beautiful and inspiring!!! Several ideas came in my mind and I chose the one inspired by the picture on the right bottom corner; box of macarons surrounded by beautiful flowers.
And this is what I came up with.
First I cut the front panel from a watercolor paper using my cutting machine, an A2 sized panel with a rectangle window in the middle. The rectangle window was sized to make a macaron box, in which 4 small macarons from our Macarons set fit. I then white heat embossed the Peony Terrace on the front panel and watercolored it in pink, yellow and green using Gansai Tambi Pearl colors. I added a bit of Color burst powders to intensify the colors. While I was painting, I tried to represent the flower cluster on the picture. The macarons were stamped and die cut using coordinating die. The colors I used are: for light yellow macaron; Vanilla Frosted Cupcake, Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine/ for yellow macaron; Lemon Drop, Amber Citrine, Coraline Hybrid/ for pink macaron; Rose Quartz, Hollywood Star, Cosmopolitan Pink Hybrid/ for purple macaron: Soft Amethyst, Plum Wine, Iris Blooms.
I glued the macarons on the gray card base and added some sequins of Glass Slippers round confetti on it. I added a thin shimmer frame on the rectangle window of the front panel, adhered a clear acetate sheet to the window and rounded the bottom corners of the panel before I foam mounted it on the card base. The sentiment is from Sweet Macarons set, which I stamped in Noir. To finish off I added two more sequins from Glass Slippers round confetti on the front panel. The backdrop of my picture is Bokeh Glow backdrop board.
I hope I was able to inspire you! If you have some of The Ton’s stamps or dies, play along!!! One winner will get $50 gift certificate to The Ton online shop!
