Stampin for the Weekend Challenge - Pink, Teal and Orange


This weeks challenge is to create a card using the following colours Pink, Teal and Orange, a bit of a strange combination but it seems to work very well. Because I will be away for a few days next week its been a bit of a struggle to get things done before we go on Monday, so I rather cheated and used a image that had been given to me in a RAK, its a gorgeous little girl with a spotted dress and smashing hat, I coloured her with my copic pens then layered her up on a piece of Teal coloured pearlescent card, I did a similar thing with the sentiment, its one of my stash stamps that Ive used for this, and mounted it up in the same way as the image.

Now for a change Ive made a 6"x 6" card, I do find I have a lot less room to move around of this size card and this is the reason I rarely use it. Anyway for my first layer Ive used the same coloured pearlescent card, with one of three designs from Donna's new Extreme Design Vol.III cd, and used another for the second layer and with some orange card and a third one with some pink card, these were arranged on the base layer, and then I stuck my image in the centre, the sentiment was stuck with a bit of foam tape to the right handside at the bottom.

To finish of Ive created two flowers with my hydrangea petals, with a few punched out leaves behind and some left over teal coloured pearls in the opposite corners.
