Colour Inspiration


Over at Anything but a Card this week they have a colour inspiration theme.  I nearly dismissed it as two of the colours are shades of red and very, very close to being claimed as pink!!!  Anyhow, the above fresco paints seemed to more or less fit the pallet given.


This is the tag after it had been bumped with the diamond stencil and sanded back.


And finally stamped in black stazon with various images and mounted on black card and outlined in a white pen.

I love how you've done the 'bumping' in the background - it looks so good! Great colours for challenge palette and of course, love that LP stamp.
