Colour Create Challenge #28









Good morning everyone;
I hope you are all having a great week. It's time again for the Colour Create Challenge. This weeks challenge is brought to you by our delightful Di and she has chosen...."Hot Pink, Dusky Pink and Ice Chocolate". The extra option is "Swirls and Pearls.



Here is a little inspiration to get you started, the sponsor this week is "Simon Says Stamp".

The image I have chosen is "Hilda Bundled Up" one of the new release stamps from Motivet. I thought this colour scheme would be just perfect for her!!



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I stamped some swirls on the brown card with Perfect Medium and embossed it with clear powder. I used liquid applique on the fur on her jacket and heat set it. I layered the DP in 2 sections each section with pink cardstock edged with my EK Success scallop border punch. The oval frame was cut with my nesties and I added a pearl to each scallop.
I hope you like it.

Be sure to check out the gorgeous creations by my teamies, lots of inspiration to get your mojo goin'. I hope you will have time to join us for this challenge, I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

Have a great day....Thanks so much for stopping by...
