Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop - Colour Challenge

Hello and welcome to the February Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop.

Each month a group of creative friends create a project for a theme. Below is an image of all of the crew and where they are from around the globe. Such a lovely and talented group of people.

This month we have a colour challenge. We had to choose three of the colour from the image below.

I went with Pool Party, Petal Pink and Starry Sky. It was difficult to choose from all the amazing colours.

I chose to use the Friends are like Seashells Bundle with this colour palette.

  1. Start with A Basic White card base measuring 21cm x 14.9cm scored and folded in half
  2. Cut another piece of Basic White card stock to measure x 14.3cm
  3. Run this layer through the Stamp & Cut machine with the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder
  4. Cut a 10cm x 2.5cm piece of Pool Party card stock. Roughen the edges with your scissors and adhere to the card from behind where the stitched circle will go using glue
  5. Cut a 13cm length of Pool Party ribbon and adhere to the centre of the Pool Party layer using GlueDots™
  6. Cut a 13cm length of thenLinen Thread and adhere to the centre of the Pool Party Ribbon and secure  with GlueDots™
  7. Adhere these layers to the card front using glue
  8. Stamp the sentiment in Starry Sky ink on a piece of Basic White card stock and diet using a stitched circle from the Stylish Shapes Dies. Adhere to the card front using Dimensionals
  9. Stamp three seashells and the Starfish in Petal Pink ink and two of the seaweed in Pool Party ink.Die cut all pieces
  10. Colour the seashells and starfish using Wink of Stella. 
  11. Pop the two clam shells into the 3d embossing folder and run through the Cut & Emboss Machine to give them texture
  12. Adhere all the pieces using Dimensionals and Glue to the sentiment layer
