Wild 'n' Reckless Sherbet!

Week 5 of the Summer of Color Challenge already - "celebrating art in all its hues" with a new colour inspiration from Kristin every week,  each based on a different weird and wonderful flavour of iccream - have a look for yourself at all the amazing pieces of art over at Twinkle, twinkle
This week's inspiring combo was Wild 'n' Reckless Sherbet! Wow!!!
And here is my interpretation - I've been doing ATCs (my first foray into the world of tiny artwork) - don't have much time this week, so bit of a rush job, but LOVED playing with these colours!

I really MUST try to improve on my photography....anyway, the background for these was done by squirting pearlescent glues onto white card, then squidging together with another piece of card, peeling them apart and leaving to dry before adding the other bits and bobs. These glues make a lovely pearly sheen, which is a pretty effect in real life, but maybe doesn't photograph very well. Still, you get the drift ...
Can't wait to see what next week's colour combo will be (the final week of the Summer of Colour and we haven't had summer yet!)

Really pretty ATC's - shiny things never photograph very well, but I can see how gorgeous they must be IRL.
