Orange, Mustard & Navy


Over at Stampotique this week, Jane has informed us that she loves the colours orange, navy and mustard, so this week she has challenged us to use that colour combo in our creation.

My background is orange Dylusions acrylic paint together with Stewart Gill translucent paints, ochre and I used a credit card to apply the blue.

I stamped the Stampotique flower, dragonfly and little bee in perfect medium and coloured with extra dark blue (520.1) pan pastel.  I used my new Stampotique alphabet stamps to write the word 'freedom' in denim Adirondack ink.  I painted the edges of a piece of white card with denim acrylic dabber and mounted.


I did exactly the same with this piece but this time used Dina Wakley stamps.
