Fiery Reds!



Hello all!  

As promised in yesterday's very green affair over at The Artistic Stamper, I've something from the opposite end of the colour spectrum today.  

If you're looking for inspiration for the Colour It Red challenge over at Artistic Stamper, then you could do worse than check out my tags over at Artistic Outpost today.  

Rather than weekly, I'll only be there once a month from now on, so I'd love it if you had a chance to hop over and check out this departure from my colour comfort zones!

Red is the ultimate cure for sadness.

Wonderful colours and images. The red is such a contrast to the calming butterfly images.

Not sure today's quote rings true for me though I do wear a lot of red.

Love Chrissie x

Kay Wallace said...

I am a big fan of color, Alison, and often use a monochromatic theme in my artwork, so your tags today definitely appeal to me! Well done on those "wordy" butterflies, too!

Marci said...

Even though it's not "your color" this is stunning. The blend of colors and the stamping is masterful. Both tags are beautiful, I might like the brighter one best. No, the other one. No, the brighter...
