Colour Create 12

This week's challenge has been created by our lovely Chris. She is one very talented lady and I'm sure many of you will be familiar with her beautiful creations. Not only does she make wonderful cards and gifts, but Chris also has her own range of digi images, which leads me on nicely to our prize this week. As Chris has chosen the colours and theme for the challenge she has decided to offer two free digi purchases to one lucky participant. All we ask is that you do not combine our challenge with any other for this week if you would like to be entered into the prize draw! The winner will be contacted next Sunday and can then hop over to Chris's digi shop to choose something yummy. If you click on the banner on our sidebar you will be able to look at what Chris has designed so far. Thanks for your generosity Chris ;o)

Here is your colour combination:

For this week's extra option we would like you to add some sort of Polka Dot design to your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.


I really thought I had oodles of black, white, pink and polka dots until I came to look - but no. Plenty of polka dots but none in right colours. Never mind - I though - I'll print some out - but no again. My printer ran out of black ink and when I went for my refils I found I had two colour refills and no black & white. How did that happen?
I really thought I was going to have to hand draw my polka dots - eeeeeek!!!
I searched my stash - trashing the place in the process and eventually found some old (very old) peel off borders which when removed had tiny dots left over - phew!!

I coloured my gorjuss girl with distress inks and added the tiny dots to her dress - the cat crept in again so we gave him the same treatment. I cut them out and sat them on a matt run through the cuttlebug with the Swiss dot folder.
The papers are DCWV, the corners but with the vintage corner die and whilst searching for 'dots' I found some black feathers which I added under the flower.

BC - white linen : BP - DCWV : Fiskars border/emboss punch : Images - Suzanne Woolcott Gorjuss girl & cat : Ranger distress re-inkers : Cuttlebug vintage corners & Nesties curved rectangle die : Rest from stash
