Chocolate Baroque, Colour Challenge #10

Hello everyone, 

I have a design to show today for Chocolate Baroque's Colour Challenge #10. 


This months' colours are fabulous, lots of fun to 'play' with.   I used Rusty Hinge with a little Picked Raspberry Distress Inks in the background.  I over stamped using fragments from Texture Fragments (which seems to be one of my favorite CB sets).   The whimsical image from Fantastic Florals was coloured with Rusty Hinge, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress Inks (on my craft mat using a brush and water).   I highlighted a little with a white Gelly Roll pen.   I didn't take the time to decoupage the butterfly, it would have popped up if I had, next time I will :).

And here is the gorgeous colour inspiration, designed by Miranda, for this month's challenge:

I agree Shirley, it is a fabulous colour palette and you have showcased the colours and image beautifully. I really must try and join in, just not enough hours in the day lately.

This is gorgeous Shirley, I love the colours although I have to admit I've not made my entry for this colour challenge yet. I have a card made using the same stamp that I've just finished sitting on my desk as I'm typing this, different colour though. Have a great week.

Lovely bright colours Shirley. The background stamping works a treat, those stamps are so useful aren't they? It was also lovely to read of your crafty break to The Netherlands, it looks like you had a smashing time there. Elaine x

This is beautiful Shirley and the orange with the pink certainly pops. Those texture fragments are so useful for backgrounds and the fantastic florals image is very pretty on top and love the white pen highlights. x

You did a magnificent job with the colors, Shirley! And I like that the butterfly is camouflaged in the pretty design! But then, I always loved those "hidden pictures" puzzles!! Hugs, Darnell

Hi, Shirley! I especially like how some of your "round" flowers are going outside the frame. That's a fabulous design idea, and I plan on casing it. Lovely colors! And a beautiful card design, my sweet Canadian friend! xo
