Imagine’s theme for the month of February is “Heart of Gold.” Our artist have met the challenge with bright and vivid colors as well as the narrative element the theme evokes. Alison Heikkia went for a super bright alternative card blending neon pink, yellow and coral with gold shimmer. While Tenia Nelson utilized white space to focus the eye on a gorgeous geometric embossed heart and using the direct sentiment “You have a Heart of Gold”.
Alison started off by dotting 3 Radiant Neon reinker colors onto a palette. She then brayered to blend them, and then rolled the brayer across the cardstock. Using a combination of Fireworks, Lightning Black Brilliance and Delicata, Alison went all in to add shimmer. Notice the gold edging is simply her fingerprints. Gush! Alison’s card base was sprayed with Sweet Plum Fireworks! then edged with Golden Glitz ink and Sweet Plum Memento marker.
