I've had a lovely creative day....here's what I did...I made my first entry to the Gothic Arches Challenge which this week is 'Daisies' - I don't know if it's Gothic enough, but I like it! Edit - someone has pointed out that the Gothic part is actually the shape of the Arch so that's ok then - DUH Blonde moment !!
I used the colours from this weeks Play Date Cafe challenge - Hot Pink, Mustard and Navy Blue. At first I thought they would be really difficult to work together, but it wasn't too bad. I used Wild Plum and Butterscotch alcohol inks to create a smoochy background, and then stamped with Fuchsia Pink and Midnight Blue Stazon before adding some gold embossing (I deliberately allowed some specks of poweder to melt randomly) and a sentiment.
Staying with Colour challenges I then had a go at Gingersnaps Creations latest Colour challenge which is Red and Black. I don't use this colour combination much but always think of oriental when I do..and this is what happened today -
The Tiger Lily Stamp is from Rubadubadoo and I have stamped it onto a piece of card I coloured with distress inks and my one cosmic shimmer colour spray I have, luckily red! Having embossed the foliage onto black card with black EP I added a scrap of sequin fabric, gems and ribbon.
Whoopee...no work tomorrow, thanks Bank Holiday - got to make my nieces wedding card so off to get some sleep ready to create again in the morning ! Esther xx
