A 'splash of lilac' at Play Date Cafe....

Still striving for inspiration I thought I'd browse a few blogs and see if I could find a challenge, or two, to get those juices flowing!
At The Play Date Cafe I found this one..create using just black and white with a splash of lilac/purple...so I thought I'd give it a go!! I know...I'm getting SOOOO brave!!!




I started off by painting the edges of the plaque with black paint. I then created the background paper using very watery purple and lilac acrylic paint, onto which I placed masks and sprayed Aubergine and Granite Dylusions Spray Inks. I finished of with a swipe (good word !) of gesso. I then stuck my 'masterpiece' to the plaque and edged with Black Soot DI. My favourite Stampotique stamps came out again...and were just highlighted with a touch of Dusty Concorde DI. As both my characters had such lovely smiles  I felt this saying was perfect to complete my first challenge! :)

I hope it's OK....now I'm worrying that I've used more than a 'splash', or that I don't follow the instructions to post it correctly...AARRRGGGHHHH!!! Big gulp...and here goes!!!

I wouldn't worry Jayne - I think when challenge blogs suggest colour combo's it's just a guideline and they are open to all interpretations on their suggestions! (Say's she who's never entered one of these kinda challenges!) Well thats how I read it anyway... Your art piece is great - love the quote too :) x
