Colour Me...! Guest Designer Week 2


Today is my second guest design spot at Colour Me...!  and I'd like to thank the lovely ladies at Colour Me...! for their warm welcome :)

This week's colours are Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz plus a neutral.  I sponged some Broken China and Shabby Shutters Distress Inks (my nearest equivalents to Marina Mist and Pear Pizzazz) on two pieces of spare card a stamped one with Indigo Blu Vintage Flourish and the other with Indigo Blu Script Background then tore them into little pieces and overlapped them in the centre of the card.  I sponged a Penny Black Blush Bashful die cut and added it over the pieces.  I'm not a scrapbooker but I do like the layouts where there's lots of white space and it's all happening in the middle of the layout, and that's what inspired this card.

Hope you'll come over and join in the fun at Colour Me...!

  10. Yes - the white space is gorgeous...but your wee bits of torn paper in the middle trump the die cut in my books! So clever to stamp the script background over the colors! Another WOW creation :)
