Colour Create New challenge

 Another fortnight bites the dust and our next challenge at Colour Create rolls around!!
This fortnight's challenge has been set by one of our fabulous new teamies, Kerry and she has chosen this picture to get your creative juices flowing.

5 May - Challenge 70 - Kerry
What a fab room!  So, your colour palette is Aqua, Green, Purple and White with the optional extra of glitter.
This adorable Tatty Button image - don't you just love that name - was part of my Mother's day present from my girlies.  I've coloured her with Promarkers and Copics and then die cut the tag shape using a Go Create set of dies.  My papers are Basic Grey Wisteria and the dragon fly die is by Paper Artsy.  I've glittered this but it's not really showing up in my pic.

I've made the flower myself, having purchased some Crinoline fabric from Linda aka The Funkie Junkie who sources this material in the US and very kindly ships it over (and provides great personal service to boot).  I've not seen it here in the UK but it makes these fabbie flowers just by  cutting (with the Tim Holtz Tattered Flowers die )layering and colouring.  I followed Linda's great tutorial on her site for colouring and assembling the layers but it really is very straightforward  - I don't do anything that's gonna take ages to make, I need instant gratification!!

I've also used a Martha Stewart punch for middle strip and a Stampin Up punch for the three little flowers.
Of course, the wonderful girlies have made some gorgous samples to share with you so don't forget to to take a peek on the Colour Create blog.  I do hope you will also be able to join in the challenge with us and be in with a chance of winning a $10
voucher to be spent  in the store with our regular sponsor, Michelle's Scrapbooking.

That's all for now, folks.
