Colour Create DT and Sketch Saturday

Another two weeks have sped by and it's time for Colour Create once again. This week it's the fabulous Di's to choose the colours and here they are, Hot Pink, Dusky Pink and Hot Chocolate.
The optional extras this time are 'Pearls' and 'Swirls'



Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Simon Says Stamp.
and the lovely Heidi has given us a $25 gift voucher yet again.

Ooooh - didn't I do well this week - I remembered both my pearls and swirls.  No chance of me forgetting these - I love my pearls and my swirls.  I decided my little Manga girl would look good in pink and brown so I stamped her up, coloured with the usual Copics, cut her out and sat her on a brown oval cut with nesties. She looks a little like she's had one too many and is 'listing' somewhat. I've actually lifted the oval and straightened her up but being lazy I couldn't persuade myself to re-photograph the card.  The brown panel are run throught the bug using the Divine swirls folder and I used Magnolia's New Year swirl/flourish stamp on the dusky pink panels. The flowers are cut with the middle sized EK Success retro flower punch, the centers stamped with a Stempleglede flourish flower, the edges inked and a Basic Grey pearl added to the centers. I followed the fabulous Sketch Saturday's sketch and will enter it into this challenge as well.
