Corrie is our hostess for this weeks challenge:
"Hello everybody and happy Wednesday to you. I am hosting today's Challenge and I would like you to use pink and orange in your background. Now my mother used to tell me that orange and pink don't go together but because I am a rebel, I think they do !!!
So I would like you to use pink and orange in the background of your project. I am looking forward to see what you come up with. Happy crafting."
I'm pleased to announce my first Guest DT for Stampotique Originals Stamps
I love the stamps such amazing beautiful artwork, quirky and such wonderfully expressive characters
As soon as I saw the theme, I wanted to create a Sunset and Silhouette effect And as Mela & Toby loved an evening stroll, they fit the bill perfectly and looked fab in the Garden bathed in fabulous pink and orange glow from the sunset
I created a pink and orange graduated background using DecoArt Traditions and Americana arcylics, Quinacrodone Violet, Vivid Violet, Black Plum, Bright Orange and Orange Twist
I then stamped Stampotique Mela & Toby such a beautiful pair with Stazon and coloured lightly with black watercolour with owl tree and sun, moon, clouds stamp in the background
I used the darkest stamps in the foreground to create a silhouette effects with secondary stamping and lighter stamps further up using Tenticurl, Jos Flower Cube, Seaweed, Stalks, Dandelion, Meadow and Spidergrass
The flowers and the hearts around the frame are Jos Flower cube and Heart cube Stamped onto card and coloured with the wonderfully vibrant Dylusions sprays and cut out, I lost count! and to finish off a couple of Bumblebees and a Dragonfly!
I hope you have been inspired by all of the Fabulous DT design projects and we look forward to seeing your lovely Pink & Orange creations For more infomation and to enter just pop back
