The Colour Room #12

Was a bit late for this one, but better late than never.   Enjoyed using this colour palette. I love this pic of Luke taken quite a few years ago on holidays.  He looks so handsome. Used some Rose Moka & old Basic Grey pp's.  I distressed cardboard and hand cut some of the Basic Grey pp, used EK Success border punch, some yarn, a few diecuts and a bit of paint to finish off. 

Challenge Heaven - June Quote Challenge

June Quote Challenge - Challenge Heaven

Trying to get in some last minute challenges.  This LO is the Quote Challenge for Challenge Heaven which was "My Friend".  You also had to use black alphas.  I used black in the negative form for my alpha title by masking with cinder glimmermist.  Love these grungy pp's from Bo Bunny and Glitz Design.  The flower is from a necklace that I pulled apart and added 2 pins that are handmade and Prima bling.  The frame is a Daisy D rubon.  Finished off with some journaling which I inked to give it a bit more of a grunge look.

Mad About Scrappin - June 2 of 4 Challenge

This is a quick card I made for this challenge.  The criteria were negative space, mainly black and very little embellishments.  This was hard for me as I'm a more rather than less kinda girl... but it looks cute.  The stamp is from Unity Stamps and one of my favs.  Finished off with some red machine stitching.

Challenge Heaven - Card Sketch Challenge

This is another quick card for card sketch challenge.  Used Daisy D's pp's, Martha Stewart punch, Autumn Leaves and Inkadinkado stamps then finished off with some pearls.

Thanks for looking and have a great day:)
