I'm delighted to have been invited to be guest designer at Retro Rubber this week, and we have a colour challenge for you:
For my card, I have used a Clarity Stamps stamp from when I was a member if the New Design Club about 5 years ago. I believe the stamp is still available but only to current members of the club. It is stamped with DI in Peacock Feathers then coloured in with a water based marker. Actually I didn't have a suitable shade, so it is a Crayola borrowed from the grandchildren's craft box.
Probably because it was done with a children's marker, the coloured image looked a little flat and featureless, so I took a waterbrush and moved the green ink around a little bit to give a more psychedelic effect. I had some aqua and lime card ready for the matting and layering, and to add a little "flower power" to the card, I embossed the aqua layer with a Crafters Companion folder called English Country Garden.
I finished it with a random scattering of aqua and green pearls and gems, but something very odd happened when I took the photo. Although all the green gems are actually the same colour, the bigger ones have come out looking completely different, almost yellow. I think it is because the tiny ones don't have a silvered back and the larger ones do, and that silvered back has reflected the flash!
