Paperartsy Challenge Sunday

Hi Everyone,

Sunday is the day I typically do all my crafty playing and this Sunday is no different!  I have created a journal page in my small Dylusions journal to join in with the current Paperartsy blog challenge, which is Pink and Orange.  Click  HERE for all the challenge info.

So here are my finished pages:

I started out creating a background using Candy Floss and Haystack before adding Prawn, Tango and Smoked Paprika:
It was a bit too bright! So I toned it down a little using watered down Chalk:
Next I added some stencilling using one of Lin Brown's new stencils (PS044) and also some background stamping using archival ink in orange blossom and potting soil:
I toned down the stark stencilling using Pumpkin Soup and then added the main stamping using black archival:
I added the quote and some shading around the quote and also around the edges of the page.  All stamps used were from plates ELB30, ELB31 and ELB33. 
Thanks for looking,
Claire xx

  7. This is so beautiful. I loved it bright but the toned down colour reminds me a more misty ethereal feel.
