Guest DT CSI and The Trinket Track

Hi Everyone,

As Guest Designer for the month of May with Colour Stories Inspirations and The Trinket Track I have the new case file #119 to share.

Be Yourself

When I saw the colour scheme for this week's case file, I couldn't help but be drawn to muted teal and kiwi green colours.  I decided to create a watercolour background with glimmermist to compliment the beautiful blossom border on the Pion Designs patterned paper, and added touches of  beige, light brown and black.
Trinket Track Product Used:
metal butterfly charm, wooden frames ornate, coconut button 4, glass abacus beads- light green, resin fame from resin treat bag-sugar and spice, resin bloom-green,

Love the wooden ornate frames from The Trinket Track, they can be altered in so many different ways.  Here I have lightly inked the edges of the frame in green.  The coconut buttons are also another of my favs and I have used one to alter my Prima flower.
Monica has a great selection of resin embellishments.  I have used the beautiful frame in my little side cluster with one of  the green resin blooms.  The frame is from the Sugar and Spice treat bag.  I backed the frame with a diecut sticker and highlighted the edges with a touch of Viva Inca Gold in green.   The faceted glass abacus beads were randomly attached to the background with strong quick drying Helmar glue.
This sweet little butterfly charm was also altered with Viva Inka Gold in turquoise.
