Colour Create #2


Welcome to the 2nd Challenge on Colour Create! Today the colours are peach and aqua with the use of vanilla / cream if required. My first reaction was 'Oh no!!' I have nothing that colour!
So I had a good rumage around and found some cardstock and some Crate Papers that match todays challenge. Phew!
I have stitched and distressed the edges of the papers and cardstock.
The extra option is to use some DIY flowers, so use your imagaination but not anything shop bought!I decided to make some lollipop flowers which are simply flower punched from different sized circles. I have distressed the edges a little and added a button and twine to the centres.
Instead of the usual image I decided to use this quote I have from the Unity stamp co. which I love and who also have fabulous service to this country.
For extras I have added some flat backed pearls and rub-on flourishes.
Go have a look and see what the other DT members have come up with.
Remember you can combine this challenge with any others you would like to take part in.
Thank you for taking the time to look and I appreciate each and every comment. Thank you!
