Curtain Call Nature's Touch...


It's that time of the week again - another fab curtain call challenge! Here are this week's colours:

Now I would never have thought of putting these colours together, but that's why I love challenges - they make you think outside the box! This is what I ended up with:

I used a mix of DSP for this - Spiced Cider and Nouveu Chic. The main image is from A Touch of Nature and I stamped it on Confetti White with Basic Grey ink. I added a bit of colour using watercolour wonder crayons and an aqua painter. I created a 'poofy' flower by punching 5  scallop circles out of DSP then alternating the patterns, stacked them on top of each other and put a brad through the middle. I then scrunched the layers one by one and added a button and flat pearl from the Pretties Kit in the middle.

I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the layout and there were two little ribbon loops on the sketch so I included those using Rich Razzleberry polka dot ribbon. I added piercing around the main panel and the greeting was stamped on Sahara Sand and punched with the Word Window punch.
