purple and lime green

I didn't think I would be able to come up with anything for this week's colors at Summer of Color number three hosted by Kristin.  But, I did make two ATC's that are pretty cool:



Dylusions spray inks and Ranger distress inks were used for creating the background.  I masked off some loose stripes and sprayed over the tape.  The inks did seep under the tape, but that made it more interesting.  I used the cap from the Dylusions bottle to make some marks on the one and a stamp to make splotches on the other.  The image on the right is from B Line Stamps.  German foil scrap is from Artchix Studio.

Thanks for visiting.  I'm off to check out some of the other creations.

these are lovely Joy..you've used these colours so well..they're just gorgeous. ..just to let you know that I'm still around, working on an altered book but with little time to craft. I'm hoping this will change. We've had so much rain here but with lots of sunshine in between .. my garden has exploded with growth and blooms ..I wish I had time to take photos..we have so many song birds and butterflies :)
