Plum, Blue and Raspberry at AnnaBelle Stamps

Andrea has another challenging colour theme for us this week........well it was a challenge for me anyway!  
When in doubt I usually head for the design paper glad I didn't!  
I chose instead to reach for my  Ranger Distress Markers, scribbling onto a clear stamp block, spritzing with water and painting over some watercolour card.

Loving the background for ABS Garden Silhouettes stamped in tuxedo black.
Fabulous black twine and three tiny licorice Sprinkles for the bling.
All popped up over an embossed black base card.

Tumbled Glass, Victorian Velvet and Aged Mahogany where the colours I used......closest to the plum, blue and raspberry :)   

Hope to see your card over on the ABS Blog this week......You could win yourself a prize!
Check in with the Belles for more inspiration.....they never disappoint.

You have totally made these colours pop Sue! Love the black bg and silhouette image, those distress markers are definitely going have to make their way into my stash.... how clever!

I am really into silhouette images at the moment as well Sue. I would never think to use a black base - but it sure makes the image stand out. Great background as well.
