HOT, HoT, hOt

Hiya! it's the boss here again!
This month's challenge here on the Creative Team blog is using hot colours, and a little bit of stamping. I had a few of the 3 frames that had broken, and I couldn't sell, so I removed everything from them , and added some Terra to the frame with a wooden spatula.
Stamp into it with a wet stamp, and make sure you clean the stamp immediately or it will dry and ruin the stamp.
Allow the frame to dry, and then spray with hot colours from Ranger's Adirondack Color Wash. I used Butterscotch and Sunset Orange.

I printed out the words create and everyday on my computer and added a stamp with the new Archival Saffron and Venetian Orange to the middle...
add a little distress ink , and this is what I should be doing everyday!!

To make the hanging baubles and the wings add a few drops of alcohol ink to a small plastic bag ( make sure there are no holes in it, and shake your baubles into it! Remove from the bag and  allow to dry!

I think this fits perfectly into the challenge for this month, and there is still loads of time to enter too!
P.S. did you spot the sneaky peeks of our new stamps???!!!  lol
Have a very creative day

Thanks for the tip re using Terra. I've only ever used a lolly stick to spread it! The colours are lovely.
