Colours :D

Hi, It's me back again, more cards :D This time for LIM again, Chrissie and Jen have given us an interesting colour inspiration this week

This is the inspiration photograph for this week
the link will take you to the challenge :D

 Looks like a giant 'P' it doesn't in real life, I had trouble getting the light and dark elements to show , so used different backgrounds  neither really show what it looks like IRL, never mind :D
The lovely lace is a gift from my wonderful  friend Gio in Rome, check out her fab creations on her blog!!!

Then I made a second card this time I got a little carried away a little arty shall we say :D
I hope it's not too random LOL I enjoyed letting loose with the design though!
 Thank you for stopping by,:D Gay x
If you would like to know what I used, leave a comment and I will add it for you :D Have a great week people!

Added for WhyDucks and anyone who would like an explanation, I hope this helps :D
The second card,
The brushes were stamped across the bottom of the card in brown ink then I sponged some yellow along the centre. On another small square piece of paper I stamped and inked  the brushes again, crumpling and inking to get a really used look. On top of all that I stamped onto a small strip of card the letters ART! The strip of card I glued down over both paper and card adding a small embellishment to finish.
I used
Tim Holtz stamps Artful Tools
Craftwork cards clear stamps, for the art word
