Good morning everyone !
It feels so good to be back with the girls at Colour Create. It seemed such a long time seeing as we have gone fortnightly and I had to unfortunately miss the last challenge. Well, here we all are with a brand new challenge for you for the next fortnight.
We also have two pieces of fantastic news.
The first is that we are welcoming into our fold a new DT member. Please welcome Janiel from Scrappyjan designs ! Janiel is an amazing, talented lady and it will be an absolute pleasure working with her. Welcome to the team Janiel !
The other piece of good news is that we have a whole bunch of sponsors lined up offering some fantastic prizes to you all ! We are pleased to introduce Simon Says Stamp as a regular sponsor of Colour Create and Heidi has this week given us a credit voucher of $25 with free P&P for you ! Thank you so much Heidi !
Now onto this week's challenge.
The colour combo this week is blue and white and the optional extra is "vintage"
Here is my card :
The DP's are K and Company which I have distressed with an edge distresser and added antique linen distress ink.
The image is a Stamp n' Stor Art Stamp called "Victorian Woman" which I have stamped in Smokey Grey Versafine ink. I stuck the image to a piece of chipboard and when I added the crackle accents, as it started to dry and crack, it lifted the image off the chipboard. At first I was horrified and tried to stick it back down but then I thought it added to the vintage look so I inked the edges with antique linen distress ink ! I love the effect of the crackle accents.
The butterfly is a grungeboard butterfly which I heated embossed with a swirl and white embossing powder. I inked it up with weathered wood and faded jeans distress inks and added the pale blue pearls.
The flowers are all from Hobbycraft which I tied into a bunch with a piece of lace.
We look forward to seeing your creations. Please hop over and see the rest of the DT's amazing projects this week, you will be so pleased you did !
Have a great day and thank you for your visit and for all your lovely, lovely comments.
