S J Crafts June Challenge


Wow the last month has just flown by {I think I must be getting old was going to say I don't know where this year has gone} anyway I digress it's time for the new challenge over at S J Crafts where this month we have a colour challenge for you. Jennifer has put together this lovely picture to help you with your inspiration.

Now I was sat at my desk thinking how the heck was I going to produce something in those colours when I looked over to the right hand side of my desk where I usually have the latest crafty purchases sat waiting to be used and what should be sat there but the new mini distress ink pads that I bought with a gorgeous bright pink and orange in it and the rest as they say is history.


I took a piece of cream card as my base and using a waterbrush  with the  Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade distress ink from the Mini Distress Ink Pads Kit 1 I swiped the colour across the centre of the card. To make this easier and to keep everything tidy I cut myself a square frame which I held over the top of my cream card while I was painting the colours on. Once I was happy with the colours I stamped the  Dandilion head stamp and the sentiment with Versa Mark Watermark Stamp Pad and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I added 3 orangey/gold gems under the sentiment and mounted the cream card onto some gold card to finish it off.


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Sparkle & Spinkle - June Challenge
Fan - Tastic Tuesday Challenge - Summer (my colours are summery)
