Hi everyone, hope your weekend is going well. Time for another Colour Create Challenge where this week we have a gorgeous combo of Sky Blue, Tan and Ecru with an option of glitter/gloss/glaze chosen by our lovely Kim. Thanks Kim, I really enjoyed this one, I think these are my new fave colours even though it was touch and go if I had any paper that matched the colours but the lovely BG Wisteria came to the rescue. I love glitter, can't seem to make a card without it so this one was perfect for me. Hope you can join us this week and there's some fantastic inspiration from the girls to get you going with these lovely colours.
For my project this week I've decorated a ring bound canvas covered sketch book. I tore a piece of BG Wisteria paper and glued it bottom left and top right of the cover, sanded it around the edges and then painted around and over it in places with Antique Linen crackle distress paint. When the paint was dry and cracked I sponged over with distress inks in tea dye and vintage photo stain and rubbed off again with kitchen paper to bring the linen colour back again. The letters were cut on the cricut, glued to the book and stamped over the top with a text stamp and the same inks, also stamped the text over the rest of the book at an angle. All the letters are outlined with a blue sparkle gel pan and then I've dabbed Distress Stickles glue in vintage photo randomly over everything and dabbed off more in some places than others. To finish off I added some gems and pearls and all the ribbons to the ring binder with some bead trim and paper roses. TFL and enjoy your Sunday. Chris x
