Tangerine and Raspberry

It's midnight and I've just finished another color page - tangerine and raspberry this time. I've really struggled with this one. I did at least three different backgrounds and wasn't happy with any. I finally settled on this music patterned paper, inked with Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks. The flowers are torn pieces of napkins and two pictures cut from a magazine. The wings are also cut from a napkin. I printed the quote on the computer and the little girl is a favorite image from Art-e-zine. I added Desert Rose embossing powder on the edges of the page and Judikins Egyptian Gold embossing powder on the wings. This, too, is 8 1/2" x 11". I really prefer a smaller format...

Susan - this piece is beautiful! I love the colors and the use of embossing powders (something I have yet to use, believe it or not!) and the transluscence (sp?) of the napkins with the opacity of the magazine flowers.

Thanks for sharing!

what a great page, it sure doesn't look like you were struggling in the least. The color combo is delicious and love the image. Very cute.
