Graphicus August Challenge - Complementary Colours

It's a while since I did the Graphicus Challenge, but, after reading Glenda's article I think this meets the complementary colours theme.(Sorry, Glenda. I couldn't bring myself to do anything on a Christmas theme yet!) I used distress inks in Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, Dusty Concord and Worn Lipstick. I swiped them across my craft mat and spritzed with water before laying white cardstock on top. When it was dry I stamped it with my favourite stamp of all time - the Fern from the Wild Meadow theme plate. The darker ones were stamped in versafine imperial purple, and the ones in the background are stamped with Adirondack Cool Peri. I finished it off with a dragonfly brad that I coloured with my promarkers. Hope you like it!

  2. Hi Sally,

    Oh dear, what a dilemma, I think I might like this one even more that the green one. Stunning again.
