a bit of colour....

I don't usually have so much colour in my pieces, but, since discovering those FAB Dylusions ink sprays everything has taken on a brighter and bolder feel to it...

Here is a tag I created for one reason and couldn't bear to part with it...but, on Saturday ended up giving it to Ness, from Papermaze, it will be going up on the newly decorated walls after the fire!! I could bear to part with it for that!! lol


The background was created using the ink sprays then stamped with black versafine ink using Tim Holtz stamps.  The dress form is cut from gungepaper and coloured using distress stains, hi-lights were then added using a white pen.  Ribbon was coloured using the same distress stains and trinkets hung from a ring.  The flowers were coloured with distress stains.  The flower was created from copy paper which had been inked using the dylusions ink sprays with some perfect pearl gold misted over the top and then formed together.  Bling and pearls finish it off....

I'm going to enter this for Happy Daze challenge - explosion of colour
