Colour Create Challenge 15


Hi everyone my card today for the Colour Create Challenge where this week we have a lovely combination of Blue and Green with an option of paper piecing chosen by our lovely Heather, thanks Heather, I really enjoyed this one, favourite colours of mine and the paper piecing well, I got really carried away and pieced the whole stamp apart from the face, hair and teddy! The girls have come up with some amazing cards again this week and some wonderful tones of the colours in their papers for inspiration so I hope you can join in. We also have Juliet joining the DT from this week, I've admired her cards for a long time so a big welcome to you Juliet.
I've used a Penny Black stamp and as I said I've paper pieced just about everything with BG Lime Rickey and Sugared papers and shaded with distress inks, a bit of stickles on there too, can't seem to make a card without it! I used the same papers for the background panels as in the piecing and I distressed all the edges and sponged them too. Added some gingham ribbon which I'm not too sure about now that I've uploaded the card :( and a little button that was part of a pressie from Martine (thank you sweetie). Hoping your weekend is good and that you've had some craft time. Chris x

Stunning results. I can't take my eyes off it, so if it's okay with you, I'm going to grab myself another cup of coffee and will be coming back to stare some more. The way you put your layers together is very interesting. I just painted my kitchen that green and my livingroom the blue/turquoise. Yummy colours!
