Colour Create Challenge #2


You would think that just having the parameter of colour would be a easy challenge... not so. The choice of colour for this week's Colour Create is wonderful... aqua and peach. However, when it came to thinking of what to do for this, I was totally at a loss.
I gathered eveything that I could find from amongst my bits and bobs which fell into this colour category and I sat staring at it all for ages before anything came to mind.
Anyway, I love making flowers, which was also part of the challenge, and in the end came up with this creation! Not my finest hour, but it's a cutie stamp and very pretty colours, so there you are.
The flowers are Xcut punches and Cuttlebug with the odd splat stamens. The stamp used for the border I bought yesterday for 99p, I think it's a DoCrafts.
The papers are Papermania and Canon.

  4. Oh Wow Chrissie! That circle of flowers is really stunning. I love the petals trailing off. You're right, the colours are beautiful but they do stump you for inspiration initially - then it just starts to flow again. Fab card. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
