Colour Create - Blue and Mauve

This week's challenge at Colour Create has been created by the wonderful Sharon. I'm sure many of you will have seen Sharon's stunning creations already, but if you haven't yet visited you're in for a real treat. Sharon isn't afraid to tackle difficult projects and puts her heart and soul into whatever she does. She is a design team member of a number of challenge blogs which, in itself, is testament to her talent. She is also very willing to help out if you have a query or question and is a brilliant blogger!

Here is your colour combination then:

For this week's extra option we would like you to use ribbons and swirls on your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.


I used HOTP Soft Tints papers for this week's challenge. Tha Hanglar image is coloured with pastels and as she is sitting on a cloud I added a couple of Magnolia clouds behind her. The fur on her hat is liquid pearls and her wings and parts of the cloud are glittered with stickles. This is a terrible photograph but the best I could manage with yesterday horrible light. I shall try to get a better one today.

Materials DP - HOTP - : Image Hanglar - from friend : Derwent pastels : Stamp - Magnolia clouds : Cuttlebug & round nesties : Punch - Leone Em ash branch : Flowers, ribbon, charm & beads from stash

This is amazing Heather. The stickles and liquid pearls finish it off so well. Your flower/bow combo is too gorgeous for words. Love the image and the way you added the clouds - not forgetting that pretty charm. I love it.
