Summer of Colour - Week 3

Oh some lovely soft gentle colours this week over on the Summer of Colour Challenge and another page in my DLP. The colours are Lavender, Grey & Plum, hmmm gorgeous.

This is my second attempt. I tried it first on an embossed piece of card and aimed to emphasize the bird in the cage but made it worse. So I tried again on some plain card and stamped with a different inkpad. My Plum is the little heat embossed butterfly, the splashes of ink and the border.

You must have enjoyed these colors, because I see you were quick to make your SOC entry this week. I think this is beautiful, and I like how you admit your errors. Of course, I really like the bird and the bird cage. I promise not to call it "wet" embossing this time (grin).

It certainly paid off with a second try. It's gentle, soft and romantic. Lovely work.

A lovely peaceful picture, and I like the way you have used the colours. I also like the strip down the right side which gives a very nice finishing touch.
