STAMPOTIQUE DESIGNERS' CHALLENGE 111: A COLOR CHALLENGE

The much-anticipated Stampotique Designers' Challenge is indeed a challenge for me this week.  Jane Wetzel is the host and here's her request:
Jane here, asking you to use any shades of purple, orange and yellow together on your creation for this new Stampotique challenge!   I love color and these really talk to me. :)  Hope you will join us in making this Stampotique challenge one of the most colorful challenges yet!  Can't wait to see these colorful creations popping out all over blog-land in purples, oranges and yellows :)  After all..Summer is suppose to be hot and colorful right?  
I decided to make a tag, and plan to incorporate it into my "Judy Journal" as an embellishment.  I was able to use all three colors by layering and blending inks.  "Pigtails" is from Stampotique Originals.  I most often color my images, but decided today to stamp her directly onto my tag.  The sentiment is from Dyan Reaveley's collection.

If you would like a chance to win a $30 gift certificate from Stampotique Originals, you can do so by following the directions here.

Thanks for stopping by...I appreciate both your visits and your comments!

Cheers!

    Great that you had the oppurtunity to attend a two days class with Wendy! That is a woman I want to learn from also.... Mayby she will come to the Netherlands or (I wish...) I can attend a class somewhere else...
    Scrolling through your blog gave me some inspiration that was needed badly for some things I´m working on this moment, so thanks! (Mostly I see something that gets me thinking of another thing andsofort, wich means that it ain´t like you will recognice what triggered my inspiration...
