Color Combos Galore - Palette 201 & Once Upon A Sketch

Wow what a busy week, and it looks like everyone has been busy blog hopping. Don't forget you have until Sunday to Blog Hop for your chance to win some prizes. A big shout out to those who did stop by so far leaving your lovely comments.

This weeks colours were soft and dreamy with a gorgeous chocolate topping, hmmmm thinking of pistachio gelati with maybe some melted chocolate dribbled over it...yummy. Unfortunately I didn't have any pictures to do with ice cream but I did have some of my DD and her Great Aunt and these colours went perfectly.

Their was a little recipe to use with the colours this week. We also had to try and incorporate the following:

3 Circles - MM circle number, circle sticker and I matted all them on a die cut circle cut from glitter cardstock.
Fabric - muslin which I machine stitched down
Polka Dots - K & Company patterned paper
Metal - MM metal circle number
Leaves - I used the leaf from my sizzix die

A prima stamp was used on the background which I then brushed over with Cherub Pink glimmer mist. BB Mud Pie cardstock was stitched and then torn away. I placed the muslin over it all and machine stitched it.

Flowers were cut from Basic Grey paper, 3D'd and I have used crackly glossy accents and kindy glitz to decorate.

Other Products used. Zva Pearls, BG Alphabets, Life Documented Stickers, Heidi Swapp Sticker, Matha Steward Micro Beedz and Kaiser Bling.

Thanks for looking, hope everyone has a great weekend and I look forward to seeing your creations in the gallery.
