It's all about the hair colour at Top Tip Tuesday


I really loved making my card for this fortnights challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday - not just because the sponsor is the fabulous The East Wind, and I could crack out my previously unused Aurora Vine image.

The challenge is 

So I went for the sort of colour that I would have loved to of had when I last had mine done a couple of weeks ago, just that I can't because of work (boooo!!!)

I used some papers by Echo Park that have been in my stash for ever... I kept it quite neutral as I wanted the image to pop :-)  No idea who made the rose stamp to the left of the image, but I thought it went quite well with the card!

I decorated the inside of the card to match

In preparation for my recent colour change (I've gone a bit red ombre... well it was red ombre when I had it done... it seems like my hair did not want to be red as most of it has washed out already.... humf!) I did a bit of searching on Pinterest to get some ideas, and found these lush pics

ahh! LOVE love love love! so many amazing colours. The grout in her bathroom though... lol! No white towels!Warning: These 20 Purple Hairstyles Will Make You Want to Dye Your Hair via Brit + Co.

 If you like the purple look this is a great source of inspiration

 I coloured her dress in greys, and added a pop of pink here and there, and a dash of glitter to her headdress, shoes, and glove thingys (I'm sure there is a proper name for them, but I have no idea what it is!!)
