This month's Mixed Media Challenge is Colour...with a photo for inspiration

This is my entry

I started by spraying black card with water and then randomly dropping Bright Silver Liquitex acrylic ink
over it. Then drops of white Dylusions ink (as I had none of the Liquitex). Card dried.
I then mixed Magenta Liquitex ink with some Flexible Filler (B&Q) and then Cadmium Yellow ink with some more filler. These were then applied through a mask (Dahlia from Peerless Designs).
Then I mixed black ink with filler and applied through another mask from Peerless Designs at the top of the card. Left to dry.
I then applied more of the magenta and yellow using a crumpled piece of kitchen towel along the middle area.
Finally, the word Dahlia (using letters from CaroLines' Oriental Alphabet Die Sheet) was stamped with black Brilliance ink and embossed with a clear glitter embossing powder.
