Summer of Colour - Week One


Over at Twinkle, Twinkle Like a Star blog a new colour challenge has been set. There are two main colours and then a third which is meant to be a smudge, splash or pop. So the turquoise and yellow are the main colours with the hot pink, yes I did say pink, being a pop.


I had soooo many ideas running through my head, so firstly I decided on an ATB.


I coloured the box turquoise, and the panels yellow.


I stamped the LP images in black archival.


And finally added a touch of hot pink to each of the panels, but because it's over yellow paint, it looks more red than pink!! 


I also wanted to use one of my new stencils. The background is brayered with turquoise and yellow paint and due to the over lapping some areas have gone green! The butterflies are stencilled through with magenta pan pastel and I added a mini peg to the body of the middle one. Ribbon is coloured with distress stains.


Same brayering technique except I started with a kraft tag which is why the yellow looks much darker. Stencilled the heart with magenta paint. Stamped the Dina Wakley collaged hearts onto a separate piece of card and cut them out. Dream is a new (to me) Clarity stamp from the word chain 5 set.


And lastly I created a master board as I wanted to use my new Hero Arts stamps.

I am sorry that it's such a long post, but you are only allowed one link up to the challenge.

Had loads of ideas too but decided to just make one thing as time not on my side lol. Thanks for your lovely comment.

I find that i need to apply Gesso on a kraft tag if i want true colours, i really love how the colours are muted, works very well.

So many lovely pieces, my favourite is the ATB :-) xxx

Not a long post in my world (!) and fabulous creations to see, so absolutely no apology necessary. Who'd have thought you'd have so much fun with pink?!

The ATB is so stylish (hope you saw your Spotlight over at FSC), and I love the butterfly tag. Guess that's the 12x12 version of the stencil - I've got the little one, but may have to splash out!
