Colour Create challenge 2

Hi everyone, hope you're having a good day. I've quickly made up a couple of cards for this Colour Create challenge. Not sure that they really fit the brief that well (to use peach and aqua and produce your own flowers) apart from the colour but it was a spur of the moment session between shopping and preparing for tonights dinner. There are two because I'd got lots of stuff out so thought I'd make use of it.

I used an image from Crafters Companion Vintage Life CD just because it was lying about in my craft room and the colours just happened to fit the brief. I used a small punch for the flowers (pathetic attempt at incorporating flowers!) and the ribbon is from stash.

For this one I layered some Dovecraft Fantasy paper onto gold, peach and aqua card. I cut flowers using the Cuttlebug and small daisy punch. Used Sakura stardust pen to highlight on flowers but this is not visible on the photo. The dragonfly is a peeloff stuck onto acetate and the ribbon is from stash.

Well bye for now, might catch you later.


  1. A gorgeous pair of cards, and the flowers are not pathetic they are subtle. Debs xx

  2. Brilliant cards Pat. I love how they are both so differnt in their style but using the same colours. That beautiful portrait image suits the colours so well. And you DIY flowers are fabulous. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.

  4. Stunning cards Pat! Two beautiful ways to use the peach and aqau. The portrait image is so pretty, love the vintage feel and the flowers are so pretty. To do a link to your image you need to use this code:
