Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge #8

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have a card to show today designed for Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge No 8.   I really like this month's vibrant colours.  I used stamps from the Indian Textiles set for this design.


The background was created with orange, yellow and lemon Brushos sprayed with gold Glimmermist.  I stamped the background images with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink.

I coloured the main flower image with Prisma Pencils.   I also used a stencil with writing with purple 3D stamp paint in the background.

For a detailed Step by Step description of how I created this card please visit Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge Blog. 

Below is the colour inspiration photo:

Thanks for your visit, have a great day,

The lilacs look lovely against the sunny colours Shirley. Not had chance to join in yet, been so long getting my computer cleaned up I've not been able to get into blogland very much.
