Summer of Colour #03 - Lime Green and Purple.

Oh yummy, my favourite colours together! So where do I start?

My sofa and the lime green and purple throws and cushions.

Or Perhaps the curtains I made with the backdrop of the lime green of our hedge.

Or even one of my Alliums next to the ferns this year.

I wonder...

So here's my Summer of Colour twinchie for this week.

What critter could I use (trying desperately to avoid butterflies as I did them each week last year!) - ah yes a beetle, how's that?

I used a Quickutz die with pearlescent and plain purple card. The background is from a few leftovers from Dylusion spraying and embossing.

A couple of purple flowers and gems, some crystal stickles and even the left over spots from the beetle's coat! Oh and some purple lace which I adore. Definitely need some purple liquid pearls or stickles - best add that to my list.

Your allium is beautiful, and I really like the idea of a beetle. I ended up going with jungle animals.

How cute your little beetle is!! Love how you switch it up each week.
Lovely furniture, nice and relaxing I bet. The peek out the window is pretty too.
I guess you love this weeks colors as much as me!

I love that you have this colour combination all over your house!! It staggers me how detailed twinchies are. What do you do with them after you have made them, if you don't mind me asking?
