Arty Girlz Challenge

It's not always easy to find the exact colours you want to use on a layout and that's when a little bit of blending comes in very useful.

I used the paint bucket to make a soft blue background layer and stamped the 1920s ladies first in orange, then white and then brown, before a final stamp in orange to give them depth and to get a subdued shade. I did a similar thing with the star and star burst brushes.

The frame was gold but by duplicating the image using the Exclusion layer blend I made it blue. Likewise the wording was pink, but by adding a second layer and the Colour Burn layer blend, I managed a passable orange.

This was created for this week's Blue and Orange challenge across at Arty Girlz Challenge Blog.

Credit to JulieO for the frame and words, and 500ml and Seishido for the brushes.
