Pink and Orange!!!

After going and seeing a wonderful exhibition at "Standen" National Trust last week on some of the designs by Kaffe Fassett I felt inspired by his eye for colour ------- could there be a link with the challenge over on The PaperArtsy Challenge this fortnight?

One of the fabulous pieces on display --- pink and orange figure quite strongly in many of this wall hangings.

Now I have to say they were never up there in my top 3 colour combinations before but now having had a play and seen how they make things 'Pop"out at you I'm definitely warming to them. So below is my entry for the first of 2017's PaperArtsy Challenges titled 'Pink and Orange'.

I began by painting my MDF heart with Very Berry and Autumn Fire. Then once dry added some Blush paint through Lin Browns stencil PS005.

This was then stamped with an image from Lynne Perrella's LPC010 in black ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The words were then added and these came from One Penny 4 stamp set. The edges were heat embossed with Stampendous Aged Silver . Finally a pink leather tie was added to the top.

That's all from me tonight as I've got some pink and orange ink calling me!!
Enjoy your week -- doesn't look as if it's going to be quite so cold the next few days, take care.
