Truly Scrumptious want to see Pearls and Swirls

We have a new challenge for you at Truly Scrumptious this week and we would like to see both pearls and swirls on your creation.

Robyn's Fetish are the sponsors are the sponsors for this challenge and I was given the opportunity of choosing an image then I saw these beautiful papers and was generously alllowed have these rather than an image. They are such summery colours and designs. 


The image is Sarah Kay's Picnic of Daisies, coloured with Copics then cut with the Spellbinders curved rectangle die and the edges inked with Pumice Stone distress ink. I manage to use four of the lovely papers, the plain textured green and orange, the pretty white with leaves and flowers and the stunning orange with white flowers. I cut the border on the green with an old Friskars punch, sadly on it's 'last legs' and two corner are from Cuttlebug's Vintage Corners. I found some orange tulle in my stash which I used instead of ribbon, knotted it added a flower to the knot.
When I went to post my card on the challenge blog I realized the challenge was 'swirls and pearls' - ooooops!! - not a pearl nor swirl in sight. I didn't want to cover the papers with die cut swirls so I had a root around in my stash but could only find a white pearl swirl and it didn't look right so I gave it the Copic treatment and coloured it orange. I'm not one for bright colours but I love how this card came together but I'm still not sure about the pearl swirl.

The prize this week is - 

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is happy to offer the winner of this challenge 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper set of their choice.

Well that was quick thinking with the pearl swirl - it does actually balance the flower beautifully so had you not expressed your doubts it would have looked as if it were meant. Love those papers & the combination of colours is tremendous but then I love green & orange! Interesting that Pumice Distress Ink works so well - will file that away for future use.
