Colour Create 37 – soft pink, soft blue, white and silver

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, a card today for our new challenge on Colour Create and a gorgeous colour combo chosen by our lovely Jo of soft pink, soft blue, white and silver which is gorgeous and is my new current favourite :D, thanks Jo!  As always there’s amazing inspiration from my DT friends and a prize from our sponsor Stretch and Bubbles so I hope you can join us.
The bird postcard stamp is by Crafty Individuals as is the postmark stamp at the top right. All I’ve done to colour is sponge with distress inks and then dripped some water onto the ink for water marks to give an aged look. The background paper is BasicGrey and some book print which has been glimmer misted in blue and pink. I also glimmer misted the lace and the ruffled paper flower made from scalloped nestie circle dies and there’s a video ‘how to’ for these cute flowers here on Dawn McVey’s blog. To finish I added the Tim Holtz adage ticket, some prima crystal swirls, the pink ribbon and buttons.
Thank you as always for the lovely you comments you leave, you’re all so sweet and I appreciate them very much. Take care and see you tomorrow with my DU card. TFL.
