Colour and...

...texture.

The workshop this week at Pinnacle Crafts was to help with creating texture from the use of colour and to encourage folk to pick colours that would normally be outside of their comfort zone.

The first project Andy (Pearson) set for us was to colour a selection of circles with Distress ink pads using the help of the Creative Expressions "Smoothies"...
 ...I have some of the larger ones but hadn't 'played' with the small ones - they are a fabulous size for applying colour where you want to be in control.
I coloured my circles using some of the 2015 colours of Distress ink...
 ...Wilted Violet, Twisted Citron, Fossilized Amber and then threw in a circle coloured with Peacock Feathers.
This is the resulting card...
...the circles were mounted on 3D foam and some folk glazed their circles with Glossy Accents - I didn't as I rather like the more matt finish.

The sentiment was a Hero Arts wooden mounted stamp but unfortunately this is now discontinued.

Although pretty quick & easy, this was a very effective card to start off with.

I'll let you see the other projects from the workshop later in the week...........................................
