Keesh's Colour Challenge



I couldn't wait to have a go at this one. I really love the colours. Just had to play along ASAP in this challenge of Keesh's!!

I have water coloured the flower then cut it out and used a dimensional to place it. The leaves I stamped in Chocolate Chip, then coloured with Sage Shadow — in the end that is all I have used of that colour, I think just a touch of it is enough for this card.
I have used the bleaching technique for the backgrounds. My upline Ann Craig recently told me how she does the bleaching, and I thought I'd try it out. It is such a beautiful effect. On the Really Rust card I have stamped over the top of the bleach with a touch of Chocolate Chip ink.
I haven't done any tearing : ) but felt it needed some distressing on the edges. The final touch was a bit of Choc Chip ribbon. I was going to put a knot on it but it was too over the top — since it needed something in that spot, I chose a Choc Chip button from Button Latte.

Well… I need to leave the creative bug in the office now and go and do some housework and look after those four kiddywinkles of mine : )
