Colour Combo No.3

I'm back again for my third post of the day! I have to say I have really enjoyed all of the challenges this week :) it's certainly got my creative Mojo flowing and it's given my blog some MUCH needed activity!

I chose Erin's colour combo for this card. Ocean Tides is a colour I rarely reach for, but I really enjoyed the challenge!

I kept the LO similar to my first colour combo card as I liked the tone on tone layering. Again, I reached for Turning a New Leaf, this time the largest of the leaves. I used the Ripe Avocado ink (one of my colours that works!) and stamped the leaf on cream CS. I cut the leaf out and adhered it to the card.

As Nichole mentioned CHA today it got me thinking of my trip there last year, it was an AMAZING experience. Unfortunately I won't be going this year. We decided that as I quit my job a long haul holiday would be too expensive and in July I will be design job hunting and most likely setting up my own business.

Anyway, while I was at CHA last year I had a go at the Make & Takes PTI had on offer. One of them was with Heather Nichols and she taught how to make these cute felt flowers. My addiction to making them hasn't gone! 

I used Ocean Tides felt, Distressed Dots DP and a chocolate button threaded with linen thread. The dies are the beautiful blooms dies.

I added some Ocean Tides satin ribbon and a simple bow. The sentiment is from Mat Stack 2 stamp set stamped in Chocolate Chip ink from SU!

I think this will be the last of my colour combo entries as I am a lil tired and have a LONG day at uni tomorrow. Lots of work to do!

Thanks for stopping by!

That's a beautiful card Beverley! I love this clean style, it really accentuates the colours! Very pretty with the felt flower!
