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.
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.
