Colour Create 29 - Hot pink, Dusky Pink, Iced Chocolate







Hi everyone, another Colour Create Challenge card today and this time our colours are chosen by our very talented Di and are a gorgeous combo of hot pink, dusky pink and iced chocolate, so thanks Di, I loved working with them. The optional extras are pearls and swirls but as always these aren't compulsary. Our sponsor this time is Simon Says Stamp so you know that there'll be a great prize up for grabs too. Hope you can join us, there's some fantastic inspiration from my DT friends with these gorgeous colours as always.

I've used a sweet Hanglar girl for my card and she's water coloured and then cut out. The card blank is in the darker coloured pink and I've used a layer of brown swirl patterned paper by Pebbles next which I've edge distressed and then a layer of paler pink card which I've cut on the diagonal this is mounted with dimension tape. This is where I did more of the swirls element by stamping in chocolate ink around the edges with a couple of Personal Impressions swirl stamps and added a sentiment by Elzybells in the same ink. I added the pearls to some of the swirls and then finished off with some little bows that I made and some flowers which were white but I coloured with copics to match the paper. Hope you can bear with my while I'm changing my blog a bit and I hope everything is working ok, more work to do which I hope will be sorted soon. Have a good Thursday. Chris x
