Congratulations

Hello again!

Have you come across the new challenge blog, Colour Me...!

It's their first challenge, so I couldn't wait to play along!

I used the chevon stamp from a Clearly Besotted stamp set Basic Chevrons. I inked it up with Color Box ink in peacock. Than I stamped the large cling background stamp, Hero Arts Line Dots. I Inked that up with Hero Arts shadow ink in soft brown. The sentiment is from WPlus 9, Heartfelt Mix.

My mother crocheted that pretty flower. I added some black and white bakers twine from The Twinery, rustic twine from Papertrey Ink. The leaves were cut from burlap bought at Michaels. The pin and enamel dot is also from Michaels. I scattered some clear sequins from Neat & Tangled Stamps. Cardstock is from PTI.


Thanks for peeking!

Michelle

Drop-dead gorgeous in a shabby-chic way. LOVE that little nose-gay you created, although the background is pretty awesome, too. Love the new colour challenge!
