It's my second week of sharing lovely Stampotique goodness, ooh it's going a bit quickly, I enjoyed this week's theme of using perfect pairs, although I was a little bit of a cotton headed ninny muggins (an extra sparkly point if you can name the film that phrase is from!) when I chose 2 colours that were right out of my comfort zone, and didn't really go together.......
Yes, that well known combination of mauve/purple and yellow...... ah well, it turned out grand in the end!
I used Cityscape, masked and stamped a couple of times, and Daniel's hearts (yeah, I really over-use this stamp, but it's sooooo scrummy and I lurve it so there!) I then spent a day searching for my masking fluid, which was (obviously) sitting smugly right in front of me on my desk all along. After painting it over the images (it's smelly!), I used several coats of Glimmer Glam paints in Berry-licious and Golden Goddess to create the sky. Dontcha love it when things have delicious names!
Hopefully you can see the depth of shine I got on the sky, the paints are translucent and full of glitter, and shine!
I re-stamped the images in white onto black card and heat embossed with white powder, then used a few elements to pop out of the background for some depth. You might also spot a touch of crackle medium at the bottom, again painted with Glimmer Glam to give another texture.
My pairs were- 2 colours, 2 images, 2 texture (the shiny glaze and the crackle), 2 colours of embellishment (yellow and purple eyelets).
I totally wouldn't have gone there without the challenge, but I'm so glad I did! Your turn, show us your pairs ;)
Oh and I nearly forgot- sunset or sunrise
