SDC 23 - Turquoise and Orange

 The latest Stampotique Designers Challenge is to use orange and turquoise - and Stampotique stamps. I still don't have many, so keep missing this challenge and the colours are not my normal ones but had a bit of time spare this afternoon.
Used colourwash sprays in sunset orange and sailboat blue on a piece of scrap paper and dried them, then stamped Glimmering Hope and stuck her on the background.  Coloured her skirt with an orange watercolour pencil and gave her hair bow some blue gel pen.

I still don't have any Stampotique text stamps so used my dymo printer. Had a spare piece of a blue page from the vintage shabby paperstack to layer it on to the card.

This is why I had time spare - dinner was a slow cooking beef casserole! (And there is plenty left for tomorrow's meal when I get in from work!)
