Colour Challenge

Emma and I are having another colour challenge, this time I chose the colours and elements.  Colours are as above and had to include script/text, at least one die cut and a stamped image.

I covered a piece of corrugated in TH patterned papers and cut a recess which I covered in text book paper.  I painted the tag, pediment die and frame in fresco inks, I mixed various colours until I got the one I wanted.  I then stamped some script in versamark ink, covered in sticky embossing powder, heated up and added black foil.

Stamped various other images, cut them out and coloured them with seedless preserves distress ink. The main image is a PA mini stamped in black archival.

Beautiful creation and sorry about my last blogpost being only in Dutch. It was about selling my little paintings in selfmade enveloppes and people abroad can't pay me in Euro's, so I thought I keep it "small".
Have a nice weekend,

The colours are lovely Sam and I love to see text used on anything and everything so this would always press the right buttons for me. Love the Pierrot image too!
