Colour Create - week 13..........


Hello,
Oh it is such a glorious morning here hope you too are enjoying this beautiful spring sunshine. We are at week 13 over at Colour Create. This week it is Jo's turn to choose our colours they are green, orange and brown with the option of making a man's card. Jo makes the most wonderful cards so do go and visit her you won't be disappointed. For my card I have used distress inks. I have brayered my background with antique linen. Then using blending foam have added the colours spiced marmalade, peeled paint and vintage photo. I also distressed the edges with tim's distressing tool. I have stamped my image with vintage photo. Do go and visit the rest of the design teams creations they are just fabulousloso!
Thank you so much for looking.
love
kim x
