Week 253 Colour

Morning LIMettes are we ready to have some colour-fun?

Yep it's that one again but first of all being the first Saturday in 
the month means we've also a new sponsor to announce! 

We are delighted to welcome back 'Dies to Die for' who are generously offering a
 £15 voucher to our December winner to spend in their online shop HERE

So back to our Colour Challenge and this week it's 
Green & Blue

Here's what the DT have created and we hope you feel inspired to play along. 
Please remember to keep your cards Clean and Simple with some yummy white space!

I started by making a stencil using a die from Clearly Besotted's Leafy Accents and sponged Mowed Lawn Distress Ink onto a cardstock panel.  I then stamped the butterfly from Clearly Besotted's Elegant Butterflies set using Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink, drawing in some of the ink with water, and die cut using the co-ordinating die.  I stamped the sentiment, from Pure Florals Cosmos by Uniko and then created some ink splatters with a mix of Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and water.  The butterfly was adhered on 3D foam and some clear Wink of Stella added to it for some shimmer.

My Crazy Birds fly again, this time with accessories!  Coloured with Copics, 
Glossy Accents on the eyes.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Here is a sweet little stamp from Hobby Art coloured with alcohol pens and with the bear gently twinkled with Glamour dust! After cutting out, it was mounted on a stitched square die-cut, popped onto dimensional pads and accompanied by a sentiment from Happy Little Stampers.

Using a piece of blue textured cardstock from Papermania I've die-cut
snowflakes with the Lawn Fawn snowflakes die before mounting the card
on 3d foam. The sentiment is from Happy Little Stampers and I've added
subtle green with some gems from my stash to the centres of the snowflakes.

We hope you have some fun and find a little time to play along!
