Colour Create Challenge #69 - Pink, Brown and Blue

I hope everyone has had a lovely week leading up to Easter. I went camping for 5 days and it poured with rain for 4 of those days!! Still, it was great to get away and the kids had so much fun.

Today it is time for another Colour Create Challenge and this time the colours are pink, brown and blue with the optional extra of acetate or cracked glass technique. I have just purchased some clear cardstock, so I decided to go with that.
My card has a base of Aqua Mist which I scored along both the bottom and top and then die cut a circle window in the centre. I used Versamark and a lovely flower image from Imaginisce's Baby Powder collection to break up the plain cardstock and stamped my sentiment in Vintage Sepia ink using a sentiment from MFT's My Basket of Eggs set. The base and the sentiment were lightly inked with my Chamomile Tea Dye ink  and then a crochet flower was added with a Sweet Blush button.

I stamped my girl from the same MFT set in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with my copics and then paper pieced her dress and basket with some retired Stampin' Up paper. I die cut her and some clear cardstock with a larger circle die and then adhered them to the inside of the front of the card. I finished off the front by tying some chocolate striped baker's twine around the top between the score lines.
On the inside of the card I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment in Vintage Sepia ink and then added some more flowers that were stamped in Crumb Cake ink, stamped off once first. This was then die cut and adhered to the same designer paper.

There are some fantastic designs from the rest of the DT, many using the cracked glass technique, so be sure to pop on over to the Colour Create blog to have a look!
