Color Challenge!

I'm having a lot of fun guest designing for the Color Challenge on
This was the card I made as a sample for the challenge. I sponged a sky, tore some dirt for the bottom and in the truck, markered a sentiment and added some embossed tires with screwbrad hubcaps!

Here is a second project in these colors with LOTS of fun mixing of media and layers of "stuff"!

Here's the humble beginning piece-a leftover from a Goodwill purchase-they'd torn off the bottom of the tag so I added some Espresso to get the proportion back.

Modge-podged a dictionary page over this.

Skim coat of matte white Gesso

Sponged through some stencils.

Stamped a hot air balloon then masked over it to add some details to the top. Here's where I added images from the Clockworks set.

I didn't like the way the circles showed through what should have been a solid balloon so I took a wet brush and bled the Cherry around the blank areas. I let this bleed down a bit and also took a Marina marker on acetate, added water to that and splattered the blue ink around too.
I added some more red from using the border stamp from Plane and Simple and added a couple of metal pieces and a crumpled Baja Seam Binding piece. I also sponged more color around and backed the whole tag with Early Espresso.
