Riot of Colour?

A dear friend, Jo Pritchard (super duper inspirational crafter!) uploaded some of the artwork from this year’s Stempelmekka to KCUK and I fell in love with one display of cards, which I can only describe as a ‘riot of colour’. Of course, I had to have a play… and this is how it turned out.

The Saturday Surprise theme this week is ‘Your Favourite Colour/Colours’ so I’ve entered this one because I love ‘rainbow colours’.

I used Ecoline inks (Magenta, Turquoise and Yellow, with a splash of green) on dictionary pages first of all, then decided to try them on watercolour paper (hot press, smooth) and wow did they pop, as you can see from the above background and from the words! I love the way the colours blend to give us violets, oranges and greens. I’ll do more of this because I love the effect.

  1. I love those gorgeous colors, and you're right, they do pop on the hot press watercolor paper! These cards are gorgeous! I love the birds, and I wish we could get the ecoline inks in the US.
