Dream Valley Challenge 14 - A Colour Theme.



Lime, Yellow and Orange! Aren't these just gorgeous?!

We had such a lot of lovely creations for our 'Distressing' Challenge last time! It's so inspiring to see so many different variations on the theme!

This fortnight we're sponsored by


The prize for a very lucky winner is a $10 voucher for their store.

The DT was lucky enough to have some wonderful images to work with - hop over to Dream Valley and have a look at my teamies' wonderful creations!

I have used Fairy Moon one of the lovely silhouette digistamps. I immediately thought of the posters by Jan Pienkowski that everyone had on their walls when I was at Uni: amazingly detailed fantasy silhouettes on backgrounds of swirling colour.

So I had a go with Distress Inks (in Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint and Wild Honey) and my mini-mister, following Tim Holtz's Youtube tutorial here. I printed the image over the top of the coloured card and cut her out with a Nestie circle die.



I used a Grand Nestie scalloped circle for the base, which is ivory card rather than the usual white, and a plain Nestie to cut the green paper, which is from the 'Bloom and Grow' stack by My Minds Eye.

The orange ribbon, yellow Prima flowers and jewelled Dovecraft brads are from stash. I also used a Martha Stewart punch for the butterflies, which are punched from remnants of the inked card. I also put blobs of mint green liquid pearls around the scalloped mat and on the butterflies' bodies.

So that's that! I enjoyed making this card so much that I did another, but I'll post that separately as I need to take a better photo.

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x
