Just could not get this photo right. I could either get the shine and my colors were wrong or the colors were spot on and the shine was flat. I went with the shine, the blue is actually quite turquoise IRL. Started with white layering weight cs and stenciled the leaves and berries with clear gesso colored with reinker in the green. The mix was thin so I experimented and added arrowroot. Worked perfectly, just right thickness and dried smoother yet subtle. I painted the berries with gold water color and trimmed down to size. The bird in purple is pp that was a 12×12 sheet but I added some of the gold highlights in water color. Heat embossed sentiment in gold and added matching green dots. Sponged flap of envelope with stencil in the green ink.
