EWV challenge - "brights"

Once again I am sneaking in almost at the deadline for the Yahoo group Everything Wendy Vecchi, this time round Lori challenged us to go bright. So, bright it is!!

Took advantage of my new Dylusion sprays that arrived last week, and the new summer distress inks that arrived last week (do you spot a trend?).... and played!

I used blue, red and yellow sprays on the tag, spritzing and blending with water and adding more spray to intensify the colour.  Then I stamped the letter background from Wendy's 'artfully said' set in the new salty ocean ink. Stamped three of the larger flowers from 'accents for art' in the picked raspberry ink ( love that pink!) and coloured them with shaded lilac and squeezed lemonade.

This challenge runs till Thursday so you've just got time to pop over to the yahoo group, join up and join in!
