Colour Create DT

My turn to choose the colours at Colour Create this week and here they are, or perhaps I sould say here it is - just the one this week.








Where I ask  you say - there - that's it - no colour - I would like you to make a card using only white - you may colour the image but that's it.  Just to make life a little easier for you there is no optional extra this week.  Now go and check out the other DT's creations - they are absolutely fabulous and amazingly all so different so  have fun and enjoy!!

This week's sponsor is the fabulous Simons Says Stamp



 Here's mine. I used Henry with lantern and coloured him with a mixture of distress inks and Copic markers. I'm really enjoying mixing my mediums at the moment.  I embossed the background with the Snow Dots folder, cut and mounted  Henry using the Nesties labels 1 and finally placed him on the Fleur De Lys pendant.  I finished it with flower and snowflakes at the top, pearls at the bottom and a ribbon bow at the side.
I distressed the edge of the image with ink and finished it with pearlized chalks - big mistake - it looks great IRL but I couldn't get a photograph that did pick up too much of the pearlized effect.
