Colour Create - Duck egg blue and Rose

This week's Colour Create challenge has been created by our very own Judy. I really hope you will check out the wonderful creations on her blog as there is so much to inspire you. In fact right now is the perfect time to visit as Judy has just had some work published in a magazine and has some piccies to show you. We are all so pleased for her but not in the least bit surprised as she really is uber talented.

Here is your colour combination then:


For this week's extra option we would like you to add some stitching (faux or real) on your creations, but please remember that this is not compulsory.

We are delighted to introduce this week's guest designer Nicky, it is a real pleasure to have her joining us for this week's challenge.

**************************

I chose K&C0 papers Bailey and one of my Gorjuss girls who I coloured with distress inks. The paper looks a little peachy in the photograph - I photographed in under a daylight lamp and it does change the colours slightly - but roses do come in a variety of pinks don't they?


Materials
BC - White linen : DP - K&Co Bailey : Image - Sugar Nellie Gorjuss girl : Ranger distress inks : Cuttlebug and label Nestabilities : Sewing mchine : Punches - Leone Em ash branch and stamen : rest from stash
