Hi! Today I'm showing my DT piece for Anything But A Card, Challenge 35... Colour inspiration.
 Firstly a fabulous image and then gorgeous colours to choose from. In the end, I decided to go with  indigo, mauve and peachy pink... all colours to go with the photos on my layout. These were taken on a holiday to Tasmania in 2011. We were in the Huon Valley returning to Hobart late in the afternoon. The weather had been perfect all day, but then there was a build up of clouds and light rain just on sunset. This led to some interesting shots across the river before the showers reached us.

 As the photos themselves were full of moodiness, I kept the background to simple cardstock,  smooched around the edges and then added another layer of a gorgeous mauve patterned paper over the top. Embellishments have been die cut from an indigo pearlised cardstock.
The title, also diecut letters, has been coloured using liquid pearls.
Pop on over to:  to have a look at the mood board and the inspirational makes by the rest of the team. You still have time to play, with one or more of the colours shown. We'd love to see your art.
Thank you for dropping by. Catch you again soon.
Cheers, Di
