Colour Create Challenge 21


Hi everyone, hope you're all having a good week so far. It's challenge 21 at Colour Create and a lovely colour combo chosen by Juliet which I love of Pistachio Green, Aqua and Powder Pink, thanks Juliet, I really enjoyed this pretty combination. The option this week is buttons, but not compulsory of course. Hope you can join us for this lovely combo and there's some fantastic inspiration from my DT friends, I think we all loved this gorgeous palette of colours.

I've chosen a pretty dress stamp by Inkadinkado which is coloured with pencils and then glittered over with Star Dust Stickles. I've cut off one corner of the image and placed over a pink flower cut from Core'dinations card which has been sanded and glittered. The other layers of card have all had their edges distressed and the last but one layer is punched a Martha punch, 'simple scallop'. I've added various little buttons one of which is threaded with some green tulle and Papermania sentiment. TFL. Chris x
