Colour Explosion!

Colour Explosion is the theme at Try it on Tuesdays for this fortnight, this could be Seasonal or Bright, as long as there's lots of colour.

I have used IndigoBlu's Ella Bella, stamped in black  Archival.  I used Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage, Seedless Preserves and Aged Mahogany  Distress Inks for the shading around the image.  I used the swirls part of  the image, stamped in Seedless Preserves, on the same mix of colours for the base card, which was a hammered white card to start with.
If you need any inspiration, then hop over to the main blog for a gorgeous array of colourful creations from the rest of the Design Team.

I am entering this at:
  Penny Black and More - Anything Goes
  Make It Monday - Anything Goes
  Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

That's it for now,  and enjoy your week.

The colours are blended to expertly that it is as though there is a candle glowing behind the image, stunning effect on a gorgeous card.
