COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE NO. 9


And my next card for today is for Colour Create Challenge - Week 9 "Lilac and Blue", and for this card, I have chosen a Sugar Nellie Gorjuss stamp called "Just a Girl", and she has been coloured with my Sukura Gel Pens. She has then been cut with a Label nesty, and layered on lilac and blue card. For a little added interest I also stamped some swirls around the edge of the image as it looked a little bare. The backing paper (although not lilac, but close...) is from a Basic Grey 6x6 paper pad called Euphoria. The stamped sentiment is from Whiff of Joy, and has been layered with the same colours as the main image. The card has been finished off with some paper flowers, with gem brads, some pale blue ribbon, and a few lilac gems, all from my craft stash. Hope you have enjoyed your visit, and many thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a great day!

Louise, I love that idea of stamping in the background. It's really effective- might have to try that myself if you don't mind!!!

Just love these stamps. What a great idea to turn the nesty on it's side. Will have to pinch that idea. Wonderful card.
