Red & Royal Blue with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Light Blue.
I had a rake through my stamps and came up with a very simple idea.
I used the Road Map, stamped just four times, from Rubber Dance with a red pigment ink and then added clear embossing powder, heating to melt it, and then painted over with the royal blue from my Koh-I-Noor tier set. While that was drying I stamped the word Souvenir, from the same stamp set, in light blue ink, clear embossed it and then painted over with the royal blue on that as well. I thought the embossing would act as a total resist, but I think the pigment in my paint maybe so strong it has colourised the red slightly. Perhaps. I don't know. But I am disappointed that the red has ended up looking slightly pink. Hey-ho :)
