Beautiful Lady

I can't imagine I've got any regular readers yet, but if you happened to see more than one of my postings yesterday you'll have noticed some 'twin images'.

If yesterday was all about imagery, the next couple of days are all going to be about colour. Following a variety of challenges as they were launched last week, I saw a distinct trend towards a salmon/coral/orange palette. This felt like something worth exploring, so I'm trying to take up as many of those challenges as I can, call it a series if you like. Stay with me if you'd like to see where I go.

First things first - Simon Said 'Coral' on Monday. Looking around I was intrigued how varied 'coral' can be. I chose to veer towards the peach/orange side of the house, than the pink. See what you think.

I quite like the fact that the gilding flakes didn't take perfectly on the FlitterGlu and left it a bit grungy/vintage.

It was also a chance to contribute to Shopping our Stash's 200th Challenge, using this Big, Bold and Beautiful stamp from IndigoBlu, and the beautifully simple sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
