Colour Create Challenge 20

Hi everyone, Thursday and time for another Colour Create challenge! This week there's a lovely fruity colour combo for you and your choice to pick three colours from Strawberry, Raspberry, Kiwi, Tangerine and Blackberry with the option of incorporating fruits into your image, patterned paper, embellishments and or sentiment. Hope you can join us this week as there's some great inspiration from the design team to get you started.

I've chosen Blackberry, Raspberry and Kiwi for my combination and used a Penny Black silhouette fruity stamp which I inked with distress inks using a paint brush and then stamped onto water colour paper. The image is matted with Core'dinations card and I've punched some flowers from the same card and arranged around the bottom of the black card blank. Added a ribbin, rub on sentiment, gems to the flower centres and doodled dots with a pink sparkle gel pen to finish. TFL. Chris x
