bright and bold colours at creative Inspiration

Good morning lovelies - how are you today? I am well and happy - and ready for a new day! We have a new theme at Creative Inspirations - when I saw this theme I was very happy and excited - Bright and Bold colours - right up my street - anyway - out came the sheena stamps and the distress paints and this is what I made:


The background was made using distress paints which I mushed onto my glass mat, flicked with water and mushed into two sheets of card. Then I used distress inks and a layering stencil from Tim Holtz.



The flowers, branch and leaves are all stamps by sheena and the sentiment is from Indigo blu. I have stamped them on the preprepared card and then fussy cut. The flowers have been pinched and bent to give them some life.

The challenge this week is sponsored by crafty ribbons:

This week's prize is this bundle of ribbons!


Why not pop along to the challenge here and see what my teamies have done. 

I should like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  8. I am guessing "mushed" is a very technical term Rached ? In which case I have been mushing the very same colours using Dylusions.

    Anyhow I absolutely love it.
