Colour Create #15 Blue & Green

As you already know, Juliet is our Guest Designer for May and has created another stunning card for you. Well, I'm delighted to tell you that she has been asked to join our team permanently and has accepted the invitation. Welcome Juliet, we're so pleased to have you on board ;o)


This week it was my turn to host the challenge and I chose blue and green as the colour combination and paper piecing as the option. I hope you like the choice of colours and more than anything have fun making your creations. Please remember paper piecing is only an option. Check out the other DT's cards - I love the amazing creations they have come up with for my colour choice.

Here is your colour combination then:



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

I chose the Whiff of Joy 'Confirmand Melinda' for my image this week. I stamped her three times - on white, the green/blue patterned and 0n blue. I cut her dress from the green/blue and bolero from the blue. I did actually try it the other way around - blue dress and headband with a patterned bolero but think it looks better this way around for this card. The basic cardstock is SU and papers are various downloads. I made the flower - the base is an actual fabric flower, the next layers are cut with the EK Success Retro flower punch and the center cut with a small balloon punch. I edged the petals with blue ink and 'furled' them in different directions. The sentiment is by Personal Impressions and stamped in the same blue ink as the edge of the flowers.


Materials
BC - SU : BP - dowloads by Katy Pertiet's Winter Break (Sweet Shoppe ) & Shabby Princess's Signature Colletction : WOJ image 'Confirmand Melinda' : Distress inks : Punches - EK Success Retro flowers and Leone Em Ash branch : Rest from stash
