Playing with colour...

Happy Wednesday,

As the title suggests I have been playing with colour for todays card.

I stared by spiriting a background using the mer du sud and Ocean Izink dye Sprays ( i love the soft chola like finish of these and the fast drying its like being skilled at inking!!)  I cut the background and mounted this on black.


For the strip I used the sprays and a blending tool to blend the two colours together before overstepping with black versafine and my Feathers clear stamp set.  I mounted this in black and added it down the left hand side of the card.


I stamped the sentiment on a scrap of the background card and cut this out with my With Love tag dies et before adding some flowers and a couple of real peacock fathers.

Enjoy...
