SOC4 Week 3

This weeks colour challenge from TwinkleTwinklelikeastar SOC4 is to use lilac, grey and a hint of plum.

I really love these colours and was pleased to get to work with them,i am not too happy with the outcome. All i could think of was Xmas!

I do love bauble shapes, this stamp is from a very old Anna Griffin stamp set.

P1060878

Used Kaiserfusion Alcohol pens to colour, used lilac and grey tones and finally got the hang of the blending pen! The gem is one i removed from some sandals i can no longer wear, used the KF pens to colour the centre stone and Rainbow Glaze in Berry to add the plum colour.

The card is from stash, has a metallic lilac and grey background.

Added a sentiment to both the inner and envelope, again from Anna Griffin, using Sweet Plum Memento Ink pad.

I had another two goes at getting the colouring correct, adding glazes and glitter,

and glazed all over with glitter.

No greeting has been added as i love the CAS look of the cards, just not too happy with the colours…

Looking forward to your visit and comments.
