Hi everyone and here we are already on week five of the Colour Create challenge! There's fantastic inspiration to be found on the blog from my super talented design team friends and also it's brilliant to welcome the lovely and very talented Kim from Kim's cards. I'm so happy that you're able to join us Kim and looking forward to working with you on the challenges.
This week the colours are brown and blue with an option of lace and pearls. I didn't have any real lace and have used a lace punch for this element. I've used my 'Vicky' image, soon to be available which is marker coloured and her dress stickled for a bit of sparkle. The background paper is BasicGrey Granola and I've die cut the sentiment from brown fun foam. The ruffled pale blue strip aka paper chenille was found featured on a blog and is really easy to make. Once again I'm afraid I don't have a link to the tutorial, I'm sure I do save them but I think I need to rename them for easier finding. In the tutorial I saw that the papers were stitched together on a sewing machine but I just glued mine and it worked fine. I cut three strips of mulberry type paper of the same size, glued them one on top of the other with a thin line of glue and then to the punched strip of brown cordinations card. When the papers had dried I cut snips along all the edges then ruffled them up a bit to create the effect. I added some blue pearls to decorate and a little sponging around the edges of the image. TFL. Hope you're all having a good weekend. Chris
