Summer of Colour - Week 4

Oh such a gorgeous pallet to play with yet again. The colours for the Summer of Colour challenge this week are Pink, Apple Green & Dark Green.

A big huge thank you to Louise Robertson over on the DLP facebook group for inspiring me this week. She mentioned that the Journal 52 prompt for week 26 was "Under the Sea". Also the Timmy Tag this month happens to be on the same theme so I got to work.

I picked out some Apple Green card and embossed its edge using parts of embossing folders and the Tim Holtz diffuser plates in my Cuttlebug. I inked the raised bits and clear heat embossed them (all in keeping with my embossing theme for this year!)

I cut the fish from Pink and Dark Green card and crackle painted them. Added a bit of stenciled plants. Then out came the liquid pearls, hmmm went to town a little with these.

I photographed my DLP page with the piece of colour co-ordinated paper I found too and my new Washi tape from Sainsbury's which I bought today. So I have managed a combined Summer of Colour, Journal 52 and Timmy Tag inspired page all in one. What a great way to start the month.

I admit, you did a bang up job by combining all those prompts and colors and turning this one layout into a work of art. So appealing. Now so many of your challenges have been met this week, so that's a perfect way to call them completed. Too bad you didn't have a quote or lyrics that would fit for the Craft Barn Challenge.

I'm with Mo. That washi tape is beautiful. It's something I might have to try to make, since it's a bit out of my price range.

Fantastic when you can complete many challenges with just one page. I have tried to find the washi tape in my local Sainsburys but they are not stocking it. A friend very kindly sent me some!

Love your choice of theme and use of this weeks colours :-) xx
