Frayed Dreams


Sue Carrington is back this week over on the PaperArtsy blog.  I've loosely aimed my piece around her first project, taking inspiration from the colours and the stamps.

I crackled the jigsaw piece, bottom layer, French roast, top layer snowflake.  Stamped the main LP image and the row of flowers.  Masked them off and added London bus, limelight and zesty zing to the background.  The zesty zing over the London bus created the orange!!

The flowers are coloured with watered down blood orange and haystack, with a touch of eggplant in the centre.  Eggplant was used to colour the words and the banner was coloured with blood orange.

Anything but a Card have a theme of Summer Fun and PanPastelsUk have a theme of flowers.

Stampotique have a colour challenge, shades of yellow, orange and purple.
