Colour Create Challenge...............................



Hello,

It is week 5 over at Colour Create and the colour combination this week is Blue and Brown with the added option of Pearls and Lace. I have coloured my image with distress inks and for the background I have distressed with weathered wood and antique linen. I then added the crackle around the edges with versamark and added brown perfect pearls. The papers are distressed with the Tim Holtz distressing tool. Then I distressed with vintage photo. The flowers I sprayed with glimmer mist. The lace I distressed with antique linen. I added pearls to the hat pins. I also stamped and perfect pearled one of the blue layers of card. Then I added tiny pearls with liquid pearls and glitter glue to the card next to the flowers.

Please go and take a look at my fellow DT cards as their work is just stunning and you will find so much wonderful inspiration.

Thank you so much for looking and have a wonderful Sunday!

love
