Colour create and Paperplay DT cards,

Hi Peeps, Over at colour create this week we have A lovely choice of colours for you, they are Ivory, Duck Egg blue and one other colour from the picture, optional extra is shabby chic and a bow, our lovely Julie has set this fantastic challenge and here is the picture for inspiration,
Challenges: Creative Inspirations~ Recycle elements~ my paper flower is made from an old Dictionary,   Simon says stamp~ Summertime blues,   Flutter by Wednesday~ Open,   Crafty creations~ Winged things,  Alota rubber stamps ~ Distress,   Charisma cardz~ Easel card
I chose a hint of brown for my other colour, we are being sponsored this time by Michelle's Scrapbooking,
I've made an easel card, using paper from the Mariposa stack made by DCWV, there is some gorgeous papers in her I can tell you, I die cut a heart out of colour core cardstock and distressed the edges with frayed burlap distress ink, the gorgeous butterfly is a Funstahps stamp? didn't know that till I just looked and it's like who are they lol, it's one I've had in my stash for years, anyway it's stamped on white vellum in using  a  colour box pigment ink pad in Robins egg, near enough to duck egg me thinks,lol, and added loads of Glamour dust,
I layered a piece of Aida fabric behind the heart, glittered some of the images on the dp, made a flower using three sizes  of my scalloped nestie shapes, added a tulle bow, some butterflies and a spellbinders fancy tag, three gems and a peel off sentiment, I've used more peeloffs in the last few days than in the last three years lol,

My next card is for Paperplay and the theme is called Bon Voyage, it can be vacation, Moving etc, and we are sponsored this week by the fantastic Simon Says Stamp,
Challenges, ABC Challenge, A is for August,   Penny's papercrafty challenge~ Anything Goes,
As you can see I used a Magnolia Tilda image for this card kindly sent to me as a RAK, she fit in perfect for this card with her little suitcase like she's all packed for her hols, wish I was going too lol,
I used a Magnolia Ticket and a Tim Holtz Filmstrip Frames Alterations Die with beige vellum behind to hopefully look like the negatives for photos, no digital photography taking for this girl he he,
She's coloured in copics, mounted on an oval and oval scalloped Nestie, papers are Tim Holtz too, my photo's not so good this time may be I need to charge up my camera,
I've used lots of Glamour dust again and distressed the edges of my papers, it's getting a habit this distressing lark lol,
I hope to see you in soon, look forward to your creations, Have fun, hugs Liz xx
