Bright and colourful and "in your face"!!

Yup! I kind of went over board with my 'colours' today! lol    The Sunday Stampers Challenge this week is Love and or Life....Hmmm sounds fairly simeple huh?! Well just read the wee story below and you'll find out! lol!!

I started out with a mega manilla coloured tag and some alcohol inks! Wild Plum, Pink Sherbet, Lemonade and Pearl mixatives, put a few drops onto a non stick craft sheet, spritzed some water then smooshed the tag through!! ... WOW man...pass those sunglasses!! That Wild Plum is sooooo strong!! EEKS!! Sooo to 'tone it down a little' lol... I brushed a very thin layer of white acrylic paint, when that was dry and applied some Faded Jeans, Forest Moss and Wild Honey Distress stains. When that was dry I used my fave crackle background stamp and Faded Jeans distress Ink to 'crackle', then did the same with the Dots  background but only in Forest Moss!

While that was drying I coloured some plain white card  with Wild Honey Distress Ink ans stamped out the  Flower power stamps and the Tick Tock Butterflies .  I over stamped the plain butterfly and the flower with the Dots background stamp using Fired Brick Distress Ink. The leaves were done using Forest Moss and the crackle background stamp and the Steampunk Butterfly and snail were done using Black Archival ink!

The word was stamped using stamps from my stash and I just finished everything off with a bright yellow ribbon coloured with Fired Brick Distress ink.

A very VERY bright piece and to be honest I'm kind of surprised at the way it's turned out! I completely 'freaked' when I saw the colour it was to start with!

Anyway, Take care Everyone and thanks for dropping by,
