The November 1st challenge card was an Aura Technique. I've never heard of this before. However, they way it was described it reminded me of a movie I saw, The Village by M. Knight Shalaman (I know I didn't spell his name right). Anyway, in this movie there is a young woman who is blind and she describes to her father that she sees the colors that surround people. So I tried to create colors around the image. Unfortunately they are lost to the scan.
I am still learning the new photo editing software and had managed to darken this up so that you can see some of the detail.
I pulled out a retired Stampin' Up! stamp set called Natural Beauty - I discovered there are stamps in that box that have never seen ink! Anyway, I stamped the flower image with Stazon black and then used (more items pulled out and dusted off) my Stampin' Up! watercolor pencils and then to create the aura I used chalks around the image. Next I stamped the background and then wanted to highlight a word, so I chose DREAM and chalked it up. I like the effect.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
