Oh my, we're at the last week of Kristin's Colour Challenge and what an amazing 6 weeks it has been yet again.
Many thanks to Kristin for setting all of this up and encouraging us all to play along with different mixes of colours.
I have been in the crafting doldrums for quite some time but today I am up with the lark (we get the post at 8am here in the UK) still in my nightie and have now finished the challenge.
The colours this week are 2 oranges and a blue, and I had the stamps all ready from last week.
I tried to do as asked and used 2 different orange inks but I think the blue is the same. I was more limited with the liquid pearls and stickles though.
Distress inks used, Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon and Salty Ocean.
Liquid Pearls Pumpkin and Royal Blue.
Stickles Copper and Baby Blue.
I have to say now that I was SO waiting for this last week's colours that I decided to prepare a page in my journal for the ATCs on Saturday.
I sprayed the pages with black and white Dylusions, stuck my 5 ATCs on then decided a bit of stenciling was required around the edges. I finished off with the title cut in lots of different colours sprinkled with platinum stickles.
So there we have it, my Summer of Colour all done and dusted, it has been great.
I have enjoyed visiting everyone and commenting on quite a few. I have tried to comment on all who visited me but in some cases this just wasn't possible (google + and instagram etc. defeated me).
So thanks to all who have taken part making this a wonderful Summer of Colour.
And here's a link to the past 4 years worth of my entries http://ccraftcorner.blogspot.co.uk/2015/07/summer-of-colour-4-years.html
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
