Chihuly Challenge

 Hello to my Color Dare Friends,

Today we have a unique photo challenge for you. This inspiration is from a famous American artist named, Dale Chihuly. I have been fortunate enough to see his work numerous times. An exhibit came to town when the kids were little and we frequented his exhibit throughout the entire Summer. His work is remarkable and stunning. So, when I saw the inspiration for this next challenge I was elated! Here is my card for today, enjoy!

This card has a lot of layers, color, and texture. Of course, so did Chihuly's work.
I tried to capture the color and circular movement from the inspiration. The background panel is an old panel that I reconstructed. I wiped the entire panel clean with blending solution and then added the colors you see now. I then applied VersaMark ink all over the panel and added Perfect Pearls for some shine.

Now for our challenge!

I wanted the elements to be a bit funky for this design. I added three flowers with white funky centers and a clear enamel dot for the center. 

This picture illustrates perfectly the shine on the alcohol panel. I love those colorful dots throughout the design. Like the traditional flowers with nontraditional elements, the colorful dots are a twist on the traditional enamel dot.

Well, thank you again for taking the time out of your busy day to visit my corner of the internet. I do hope you will join us at Color My Heart Color Dare and play along.

Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and stay healthy. Until then take care and we will see you soon!

Great background and love how you were able to pull in the white from the inspiration photo... something I just could recreate on my card. Love the sentiment... fun and pretty card.
