Colour Create Challenge # 24

What a fabulous response we had last week to our challenge ! Thank you all so much for playing along with us.

This week we have the fabby colour combo of PINK, ORANGE AND GREEN and the added extra is "hearts" although its not compulsory !

This week we are being sponsored by the fantastic Crafty Ribbons and we have the most scrummy bundles of ribbons from them as a prize (wouldn't mind them myself !).

All the DP's are from DCWV "Nana's Nursery". These are such gorgeous papers and I think I've only ever used them for a baby card once ! They are so versatile.

The image is one of my all time faves. I think there is always one Tilda who you will love forever and this one happens to be mine. She has been coloured with Prisma's.

The flowers and leaves stamped around the image are from a tapestry set and I stamped them in Hero Arts shadow inks.

The flowers and tag were an experiment ! I went to Potato Patch Crafts last week for a fun evening of glimmermists, stampbord and embossing and had the most fabulous time, we made all sorts. The flowers have been glimmer misted and I inked the edges. The tag has also been glimmer misted, stamped with "Perfect Day" and then clear embossed. This didn't work out as well as I expected as the sentiment went all "blurry". Not sure why ! Perhaps I was too impatient and put the versamark on too early before the ink dried properly (that's more like it !). The brads are all from my stash.

The ribbons are from my stash.

The heart is a Bazzill chippy which I also glimmer misted (it's very sparkly in real life) and I wound some jute string around it to give it a bit of texture (as you do !!).

You have to go over and see my teamie's creations - they are absolutely stunning and have certainly put me to shame this week

We can't wait to see your creations this week and hope you come along and have a play.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you leave. They all mean so much !
