Artsy Amethyst Anna card

Hi everyone,

It's time for a new Simon Says Monday Challenge and this week the letter A is the letter to play with. A is for ... art journal, April, apples, America, etc. We are very curious to see how the letter A inspires you this week!



When I saw the new stamps Anna Dabrowska aka Finnabair designed for Prima Marketing I knew it wanted to make an artsy amethyst Anna card. Well, I knew I wanted to use the Anna stamp, and as the card progressed it got arsty and got the beautiful sort of amethyst color.



Actually, I was experimenting with the Anna stamp and when I was playing with the sprays (Bubblegum Pink, Vibrant Turquiose and Crushed Grape), I didn't masked off the stamp. Oops, that was very dark and not what I wanted .... What now? Throw it away or continue anyway? I think it's always a challenge when you are just starting with a project and it isn't as pretty and nothing like you expected, to go on until it becomes something beautiful. And when that happens, I'm even more happy and pleased with the result.



Since I had nothing masked the stamp, I had to bring some dimension to Anna. Lifting the color using water didn't do alot and I had to think of something else. That gave me the idea to use White Linen Dylusion using a water brush. With it I made some parts brighter to get more depth. Love the effect!

  15. What a great piece! I really adore the juicy, saturated, deep colors you used and I like how they blend diagonally from pinks to blues. Really lovely and a great use of that stamp!
