Colour Create Ballerina

Happy Thursday Everyone,

This fortnight's Colour Create Challenge is sponsored by Michelle's Scrapbooking who is offering a $15 voucher for the winner of this challenge and All Colour Create readers are welcome to a 15% discount good through July 31st  just type in the promo code CREATE. Be sure to check it out as Michelle has some new Magnolia & Sweet Pea stamps in stock! The inspiration pic below was chosen by our DT Di. It's a beautiful picture and the colours are gorgeous so I'm sure she will have inspired you all to play along! Di's colours are peach, pale pink and black with the optional extra being lace or tulle.

I must admit I was a little thrown at first using pink and peach together but I'm happy with the way my card turned out. My base card is Black with a layer of Blush Blossom and I've chosen some 7 Gypsies pattern paper from the 5th Avenue Pack.

I have used Copics to colour my Ballerina Tilda and I've also used a Clear Spica Copic Pen on her dress and slippers and a Sand Spica Copic Pen in her hair but the photo doesn't show this detail :(  Tilda's Tiara is coloured with Copics and then I went a little crazy with the Pink and Clear Gemstones!

I've also added this gorgeous little Dress Charm and used one really large flower instead of a floral arrangement - just for a change.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the creations by the rest of the Colour Create Team - they are fantastic!
