Embellish Challenge

Hellooooooo lovely people!

Have you seen the lovely colours that are being used for this month's Embellish Challenge? Soooo pretty!


I found them so inspiring and decided to use them for a quick card. I used an emboss resist with distress inks in this one, because the second concept of the challenge is 'colouring'.

Embellish

I used sponges to colour the images, but here is a quick tip for the round centres where a sponge can be inaccurate .... if you adhere a pearl in place and then run a Q tip which is saturated in Dye ink around the pearl, pressing lightly against it, it keeps the colouring perfectly circular. (Does that make sense?)

Embellish Deet

The kraft colour of the challenge is used inside the floral centres - just in *case* you were wondering :0)

Thanks for stopping in! Hope you're having the BEST of the best today!
