When The Stampers’ Sampler announced their annual Colour Challenge, some months ago, initially I didn’t pay much attention as it is one of the challenge calls, to my memory at least, I cannot remember submitting to. However, it was around this time that I was playing with Brushos, received from That’s Crafty. The Universe was obviously nudging me to submit because one of the pots of colour I had was Vermillion, the actual colour stipulated in the colour challenge!
As luck would have it, the submissions were published!
Vermillion, brings to mind the Renaissance and another colour I associate with Renaissance is gold so that was my accent colour.
The colours seem a bit odd in my photographs, as it does look as though there are hints of mauve but nope, I used Vermillion and touches of Rose Red Brushos for the backgrounds and to stain the cardstock for my stamping surface.I played around with the focal images for both cards I am sharing in this post (three were actually published). This created contrast and also dimension and then I simply scribbled a white paint pen, here and there.A banner with a scrap of gold stained handmade paper with a random piece of stamping.The Lynne Perrella image seemed suited to this Artistic Outpost sentiment. The second card.With no detail photographs as I managed to delete them during the editing process! Not the cleverest of moves! Anyway, this card has the same supplies except for the Oxford Impressions sentiment. Once again tissue/handmade papers and muslin were stained with gold to create the gold accents against the vermillion.
As always, thanks for the time you take to stop by my Blog, it is always appreciated.
