Today I am back with Colour Create's Challenge #66 which is to use pastels with the option of adding an Easter theme. Here is the Inspiration picture:
And the fantastic sponsor is Crafts and Me:
I chose My Basket of Eggs stamp set from My Favorite Things. I used watercoloured my girl on watercolour paper and die cut two clouds. Behind these I used some pastel paper from my stash and then matted the panel on Bashful Blue cardstock. These layers were then machine stitched to add some texture. I finished this section off by adding some die cut grass and popping everything up on dimensionals.
The background was stamped with A Little Argyle stamp set in Certainly Celery ink and finished off with some pink twine and some pearls. This layer was also stitched and then all the layers were added to my white card base. I stamped the sentiment from My Basket of Eggs set in Bashful Blue ink and then cut it to form a banner.
I would also like to enter this card in Amber's Craft and Stuff Challenge - Use Die Cuts. There are some very clever entries in this challenge!
I have to apologise that I haven't finished the inside - this is something I NEVER leave unfinished, but I have been chasing my tail all week and have been trying hard to catch up and get this card finished. Anyway I hope you like it - I love the way it turned out. Be sure to pop on over to the Colour Create blog to see what everyone has designed - their cards are gorgeous!!
