Creative Inspirations Colour Challenge!!!

Hello my blogging friends,
it's that time of the week again,
a new challenge at
Creative Inspirations
is upon us, we have a colour challenge for you:
TURQUOISE, CREAM, and GOLD ONLY!!!
Aside from skin tones, hair and maybe a leaf or two,
in order to qualify for the prize this week,
you gotta stick to the colours.
I was struggling at first,
but as the creation came together, I must say,
what gorgeous colours!!


*****I owe details, but I can NOT be late to work again. I narrowly escaped getting written up on my last shift, I can't go tempting the powers that be again!!****


Okay, I am back on here and no, I wasn't late for work, lol, not that time anyway!! So my image is coloured in Prismacolor pencils and then I added a bit of Stardust stickles to Tildas dress, antique linen stickles to her shoes and her hair has been highlighted with Gold Lame Smooch and Sakura white gel pen that I then went over with Stickles, so her hair twinkles when it catches light in just the right spot. I distressed and edged everything in vintage photo, my cream base cardstock was distressed with scissors, then I added loads of gold Stickles, the DP is a combo, stipes are Graphic 45, flowers are K & Co. and the flourish paper is BoBunny. The oak leaf MS punch has come out to play in my floral arrangements which consist of stash flowers and twiddly bits from a wonderful bloggy buddy who shall remain nameless, as I don't want her to be hounded for stamen, but a huge thank you to her, she knows who she is, I LOVE them!!! The layer of trim beneath the golden American Crafts ribbon is by Prima, as is the big turquoise flower, all other items are from the stash.


You can click on the pictures to enlarge them, as I'm sure you well know!!
The sketch was provided by Friday Sketchers and PaperPlay Challenges is hosting a Something Old challenge (big turquoise flower and golden ribbon)
Be sure to stop by Creative Inspirations this week to see our lovely Tildalicious samples. What a coincidence, lol!!

Take Care in this heat,
drink clear fluids, take frequent breaks,
blah blah blah!!
