Colour INKspiration Challenge – CI04

What do you think of these colours?

Colour INKspiration has another colour challenge happening…

I love Elegant Eggplant and it look wonderful teamed with Delightful Dijon and Crushed Curry…

When making this card all I could think of was my niece, these colours were the colours of her Netball Team.

The card stock I have used to stamp on is “Shimmery White” as it works well with water colour if you didn’t want to use watercolour paper.

I stamped the image with Stazon but I may not have let it dry enough as it has bleed a little where i was concentrating the water and ink.

So if you are going to attempt this card then give your ink time to dry…don’t be impatient like me.

This this I was trying to achieve the look of movement as the image depicts freedom and dance. So I want to give the dress a look of “Shot Silk”.

Shot Silk is a fabric where 2 colours are used, each colour woven in a different that when you move another colour will appear. Sometimes you can also see this in some car colours where from one direction you will see one colour and from another direction another colour.

 I painted the dress and the hat in Crush Curry using the Aqua Brush…then with the Elegant Eggplant added colour around the waist and followed the folds in the skirt and bodice. Letting the two colours blend together. Going back adding more depth of colour at the waist. the Delighful Dijon I used to add shadows on the hat and the dress – below the hair and around the hem and folds.

Hope you give this a go…
