Colour Create......................


Hello,

I so hope everyone is ok. How beautiful did that snow look. Well today I have made a card for a brand new challenge! It is just such a fabulous idea to challenge us with different colour palette's. This week it is green, brown and pink. Go and check out the gorgeous cards made by the so talented design team. So for my entry into the challenge Colour Create I have coloured my image with distress inks. For my background I have used tattered rose, antique linen and pine needles. I have also distressed my paper with tattered rose. I made my hearts with green metal. I cuttlebuged them and sanded the heart to reveal the metal embossed underneath.

Thank you so much for looking.

Keep warm everyone.

love
