Colour Create Challenge 10 - Duck Egg Blue and Rose
Hi everyone and it's time for another Colour Create Challenge. Our colours this week are chosen by Judy and they're a lovely combination of Duck Egg Blue and Rose with an option of Stitching, real or faux. Thanks Judy, absolutely love these colours and faux stitching is one of my favourite things to do on my cards so I really enjoyed this one. Hope you can join in this week and if you need some inspiration pop over to the blog for some fantastic ideas from my lovely DT friends, they'll certainly make your eyes pop!
I chose some Cosmo Cricket paper as it seemed to be a perfect shade of the blue for the challenge and I stamped it with a Paper Artsy music score stamp and some Personal Impressions swirls in Tattered Rose distress ink, unfortunately it's quite subtle and I don't think it shows up too well in the photograph. I distressed the edges. added stickles to the swirls and attached to the card after putting in some eyelets (yes you read it correctly I finally managed to set some eyelets courtesy of the Silent Setter kindly given to me by my friend Sandra!), and attaching a little tag I made from an off cut of the pink card with some sheer ribbon. Added the big flowers which have been sponged with tattered rose distress ink, stickled and a candy gem placed in the centre. I used my digi image 'Elise prepares' and coloured her with markers and I've also stamped some more of the swirls in pink over her leotard and added stickles for some sparkle. She's cut out and mounted on glue gel. I did my faux stitching around the edges of the paper and the card with a pink sparkle gel pen. Hope you're having a great weekend. TFL. Chris x
