Final GDT Piece for Stampotique

Hi Everyone
Well as this is the last Wednesday of October it means that this is my last GDT post for
and I have been thrilled to have joined this super talented team and I was also lucky enough that October has had 5 Wednesdays in.
My final piece is for this weeks challenge, hosted ny Nellie,and the theme is
"Use your favourite colours"
My favourite colour is "Pink", and Sam if you are reading this sorry but it is!!!, this was one of the colours in the Carols challenge 2 weeks ago where I made a very pink creation. This time I have gone for a much darker piece and included subtle splashes of pink, see Sam you can add pink to lots of things!
I have used "Mothloved" she is one of my favourite Stampotique characters.
My background I have created on white linen card using Portfolia oil pastels, a small metal spatula and my heat gun. It then involves shaving small pieces of the pastels onto the card and heating with the heat gun and then smearing with a heated up metal spatula. I didn't know where I was going with this but it started to look like a city skyline so I carried on with that theme. The lights in the buildings have been added with distress paint.
you can see the effect here and the texture of the linen card.
I hope you can pop over Here and join in with the team or at least pop over and see the fabulous makes of the DT.
This month has been an absolute blast being part of this team, if not over far too quickly.
Thanks for visiting and see you soon
