Margie and Me - Titian the Venetian

Okay, first things first, this weekend, I made another version of my Budding Stones Necklace.
This time I used some lovely turquoise and went with a monochromatic version. The blue is awesome (I love turquoise) and I paired it with gunmetal chain for a little edge.
I'm gonna put Blue Budding Stones in the shop for 24 hrs. and if nobody bites, I'm taking both of them out to keep for myself. :)
Okay, here's what you all came for. This week's inspiration is #64 Titian the Venetian. I specifically chose a palette with red because it's not a color that I do a lot of and I wanted a little stretch.
The colors this week come from Venus of Urbino in which, according to Margie, "deep Venetian reds are featured against warm ivory-gold flesh and pale, neutral linen whites".

Here's the palette that I generated using the color generator, but it doesn't quite do the reds justice. Margie really emphasizes the red. Like the colors "thunderbird" and "el salva". Side note: when I was little my dad owned an antique Ford Thunderbird, and the interior was exactly the deep red color below...wierd.

Anyway, I do hope you'll play along, I think this one is going to be interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing what we can make.

Also, I hope you'll come back on Wednesday, I've got a little something special in the works. Hehe ;)
