Happy Easter. Colour Create Challege Eleven -

Happy Easter everyone. I hope you're all having a very special Easter. Time for another Colour Create Challenge and this week the challenge is brought to us by the lovely Tab, a colour combo of brown, beige and cream with an optiion of distressing. Gorgeous colours I'm sure you'll agree and distressing is one of my favourite things to do on most of my cards so thanks Tab for a great challenge, I enjoyed it very much. I hope you can join us this week, pop over to the blog for some fantastic inspiration from my DT friends.

For this week I've made an ATC and used a cute little Alota Rubber Stamps image which is water coloured with distress inks, cut out and attached with gel glue. The base is bazzil cardstock sponge distressed with Versafine sepia ink and the pp is BasicGrey Archaic which is distressed on the edges with a distressing tool. I added various buttons from stash, doodled and added a sheer ribbon at the top. TFL. Chris x
