~Colour Challenge~

Hello everyone.  I hope you all had a wonderful christmas and got lots of scrappy pressies.  Not long now and 2014 will be upon us. Well as you know it is Monday and I am here to share with you all my last project for The Shabby Tea Rooms.  My time here has been fleeting.  Everyone was so sweet and helpful.  I want to send a special thanks to Debbie for such a wonderful opportunity.

This week is #199 ~ Colour Challenge.  Our colours were black, kraft and cream.  I have to say some of my favourite and when you mix them together they make a stunning combination.  Our inspiration pic from Debbie was......

......and here is my creation...a card!!  I have used black cardstock as my card base and added a slightly smaller layer of Kraft card stock.

I then used Prima Printery papers for the cream background.  I heavily distressed the edges with my scissors and inked all the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress inks.

 I have hand made my paper flowers from some cream card stock and a five petal flower svg that I cut with my older version of the Cricut.  I have used Tea Dye distress ink to get the colour.  I have layered them on top of some tea dyed seam binding, twine and some eyelash fibre. Underneath the flower layer I have a strip of Kraft card stock that I have added some lace and stamped strip of calico that was sent to me in RAK from my friend Chrissie.  The leaves have been cut from the Fresh Foliage Memory box die.

This is my last post for the wonderfully creative team at The Shabby Tea Rooms.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time there and I hope you have all enjoyed my projects.  Once again Debbie thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity.

Have a safe and wonderful New Year everyone and ....
Till next time remember to .....
