Stampman - Summer Colours

Hi all, 2nd post of the day lol, right I need to be ultra quick, yet again I'm late for the challenge over at The Stampman Challenge Blog which is Anything Goes as long as it's Summer Colours. Because I was so late I thought I had missed it, but earlier I was having a play and I went with summer colours yellow, orange and green.
I used dylusion sprays which are the old ones apart from the yellow, and to tone it down I used cosmic shimmer mist and perfect pearls sprays, these were done on the flowers, leaves and sentiment.  For the background I used distress inks, dried, then flower mask, dried slightly and then shook holographic embossing powder to give a twinkle.
I did the above same sprays on the seem binding and then built up the flower I stamped from Studio 490.
I have took two pictures, one is without flash but doesn't show up the twinkle so one is done with the flash, couldn't decide which was best lol.

With flash, see the twinkle

Without.


Right better be off as I will miss it, 15mins and counting EEK!!! Thanks for visiting :-) Kerry xxx

That is so pretty. I love the colours - they have brightened up a grey north east day! Great depth and texture. jenx

I prefer the second - the shadows emphasize the texture. Very pretty tag indeed :)
