Good morning ! A bright and sunny one it is too ! I'm a little late this morning because I was allowed to have a lovely lie in and it did feel good.
This week on the Colour Create Challenge Blog my extremely talented teamie Heather chose us the most fantastic colour combo of blue and green and the optional extra is paper piecing. Well, I adore these colours together and also love paper piecing so making this card was such a delight.
The base card is white Bazzill.
The patterned papers are DCWV "Sweet". I used the checked paper to piece her dress and flower in her hair.
The image is by Leanne Ellis and is available from Funky Kits. I have coloured the unpieced parts with ProMarkers. Her star I stamped twice and attacked the second star with bright yellow glimmer mist ! Wow, this is fun stuff ! The background has been coloured with broken china and peeled paint distress ink. I have cut the image out with oval nesties.
The flowers started off as Prima cream paper flowers until I again attacked them with green and blue glimmer mists. The centres are cream paper roses from Hobbycraft.
The leaves have been punched from a Leone Em leaf punch from the same PP as the image was matted onto.
The sentiment is by Penny Black.
Have fun with this challenge won't you ?! We look forward to seeing your creations.
Have a great day and have fun whatever you do. Me ? Well, the rest of the ironing pile is sat here winking at me so no doubt I shall be doing that and I did notice that the washing basket is full to the brim again - oh to be a man !!!
Hugs to all and thank you so much for visiting me and for any comments that you leave. I appreciate all of them.
