I’m just about making it to The Alley Way Stamps‘ third birthday party … didn’t realise it wasn’t a late night soirée, otherwise I’d wouldn’t have pootled around quite as much as I did before getting here. TAWS is sharing the limelight with Colour Q this week … the palette is a great one (and it’s a gorgeous inspiration photo), but it isn’t a natural colour choice for me at all, which is why I’m playing along … stretching a horizon or two.
ETA: Thanks to a suggestion from Ardyth, I’m also adding this as a second entry to CASology‘s Bubbly challenge … now why didn’t I think of that?! Thanks, my friend!
The dotty image is a TAWs border one, stamped numerous times to create the front panel. I coloured the dots randomly with Promarkers and in some of the ones left blank, I added copious layers of Wink of Stella, covered with Glossy Accents, to give a bit of sheen and shine. That made me more comfortable with the palette … it’s so not my usual one that I don’t even possess any burgundy … at all … not a drop, swoosh, snip or morsel. So the burgundy dots were mixed on the card … powder blue first followed by cardinal red … looks about right from here. I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment on the card base, edged the top of the dotty panel with a black strip, and popped up the panel on foam dots. Could this be a guy card, even with the shimmer?
Need to go and get linked up before the door finally closes at TAWS … be back shortly with a little something else. Thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a delight! Anita 🙂
