Colour Create 6

This week's colour are Navy, Turquoise and Lime


For this week's extra option at Colour Create we would like you to create your card or project without using any design papers, but please remember that this is not compulsory. If you would like to use this option, here are some ideas for you - heat embossing, dry embossing, chalking, distressing, stamping, doodling, watercolouring.....


My first thoughts when I saw what Sarita had conjured up for us this week was Eeeek!!! Well and truly out of my comfort zone - but, I'll tell you what I shall certainly be using these colours and techniques again - so thanks Sarita.

The turquise paper is stamp with a floral/flourish stamp which Sharon kindly sent me as part of my birthday goodies (can't wait to try out the rest) Thanks Sharon. The stamp on the lime green central banner is a beautiful Magnolia flourish (although you can only see a little of it) and the corners are Basic Grey from the Boxer stamps. I fortunately had the huge lime green Petaloo flowers and the gem brad was clear crystal which I coloured blue with peel off pens.

Materials
Basic cardstock - Bazzill, SU and Paper Mill shop : Stamps - Laura Ashley, Basic Grey and Magnolia : Punches - Leone Em leaf and MS lace doily : Flowers Petaloo : Brad - papermania

This is stunning Heather. I was so pleased that you got to use the stamps I sent on this card - they make a fabulous background. I love that flower because it is so lush. Yep, Sarita certainly has sparked something off in quite a few of us, hasn't she? Wonderful creation.
