Colour Create Challenge 23 - Blue and White

Hi everyone, a card today for Colour Create where this week our colours are chosen by Mina, thanks Mina, I loved them and really enjoyed working with the theme choice of Vintage too. We've also been joined this week by our new team member Janniel, who's an extremely talented lady, it's good to have you on the team Janny! We also have sponsors from this fortnight onwards which is good with some great prizes to be won, so even more reason to join in the challenge. This week our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp who are offering a $25 gift voucher and free shipping to the prize winner!! I hope you can join us and there's great inspiration from my DT friends.

I've used a Penny Black stamp for this card, one of their Victorian style stamps that seemed to go with the vintage theme and it's water coloured with distress inks. The background paper might be BasicGrey, I threw away the bottom strip before I read what it was :D. I added a square doily for a bit more of a vintage look, roses, prima flowers and the leaves and flower centre stamens were a pressie from my friend Tara (x), these have been sponged around the edges. I finished off with a bit of Star Dust stickles for some sparkle. TFL. Chris x
