Colour Create Challenge 8


Morning everyone..this weeks challenge at Colour Create is Navy, Lime and turqoise, with the added extra of making your own background !!Now i'm not sure making my own background is my 'thing' and apologies for the poor photo, i was going to load a clearer one but my camera battery has just gone kapput :(

I used a stamp from the new Prima collection 'Build a swirl' with a turqoise palette ink pad..added Papermania gems and a rub on sentiment..coloured the butterflies with Brushmarkers in lime and navy..

Hope you all have a lovely Mothers day, i'm just getting ready to visit my Mum, though i know she'll make a fuss cos i'm streaming with a nasty cold, lol..it'll be an 'air' kiss from me today, lol. Mothers day is always a bit of a 'non' event for me, be lucky if Josh has remembered, typical boy..ah well. i love him to pieces anyway...xx

  6. Hi Katy
    The card is beautiful and very definately 'yours' Creating your own backgrounds etc gives far more scope for demonstrating your own artistic flair and you ain't half got it!
