Both of the additional colours this week are probably one of my favourite combos to date. The colours went perfectly with one of many pictures I had taken of our new dog Sophie. I did find however that when you ink or paint on black it can change the hue of the colour so I went back over my brick work hoping to get the right hue. I used colorbox bright lime ink pad but it seemed to go more of a grass green and its a bit hard to start again when I generally leave misting and masking last, generally I have my photo and papers already stuck down and then decide to add these types of mediums to my page. Overall I was happy with the result.

Picture has a digital frame that I downloaded from TPs. Hambly transparency was used underneath the word block, I used ink with the brick template but then had to go over again with paint as the ink changed in hue. I then stamped over the brick pattern with TH stamp and MM Manila paint.

Ribbon was twisted and stitched down, tape measure's were cut from Websters paper. Flowers cut from Amy Atlas K & Co Range.

Product use: Bazzill Cardstock, Websters Äll About Me, Crafters Workshop Brick template, Websters Stickers, Tim Holtz Stamp, MM Paints, Matha Steward punch, Hambly Transparency, K & Company paper.

Thanks for looking and I hope to see you over at Black With 2, this is a great challenge and really gets you thinking with the limited colour use.

Have a great weekend.
