I love the way this card came together, as I was more than somewhat challenged with the 'mood board' that is the inspiration for the new October challenge at We Love Stamping.
In the end, I simply used the basic colours of purple and orange
The sentiment, from Divinity Designs, was gold embossed
The Crocus stamp is a Uniko one, I also gold embossed it, and painted it with watercolours.
What the camera has picked up as blue is actually a soft purple.
I masked the image and sprayed the background with a Mr Huey colour mist - Sorbet. Again the camera has not shown the true colour, which is more orange than the yellow as it shows.
The base I adhered the focal panel to is also a soft purple.
A solid gold strip of Washi on the inside, to match the two snippets of gold under the corners of the main panel
The image was repeated on the envelope, stamped using markers on the image.
The prize this month has a wonderful collection of elements,
Do come and join in the fun, as there is always an Anything Goes option to the challenge.
