Summer of Colour 5 : Week 4

Over on Twinkle Twinkle this week, Kristin has challenged us with the colours, 2 reds and a metallic.

The second half of last week's stamp was all at the ready plus the new word, "Memories".



The Distress Inks I used are Fired Brick and Festive Berries with Brushed Pewter Distress Stain for the metallic.

The liquid pearls are Rouge and Platinum Pearl.
Stickles Silver and Red.

As always it it so hard to photograph metallics, but I am thinking of the silver as cool wispy mist of an early morning as opposed to last week's golden hues at dusk.

I don't think about the stamp nor the opposing ATC when I do the inking and am amazed at how they seem to come together so well.

Yes, BJ, they really do come together beautifully, don't they? I absolutely love what you have done with this week's colors and especially love the effect of all 4 week's works together. I can't wait to see what you do for the next 2 weeks! HUGS! Sharon

Fabulous quartet!

I agree that they look like they were actually stamped at the same time, then cut apart. Your SOC entry this week is amazing and beautiful. I never thought of pearls, so your metallic is wonderful and very misty. Unique, too.
