Another warm day for a challenge


Hello there!! Its another warm day and its certainly taking its toll on me, so instead of going out in the heat where its far too warm for me at moment. I decided to get cracking on my latest challenge this month, those who visit my blog regular will know I love a challenge as it gets my creative juices flowing.
Over at Crafters Companion Facebook July Challenge their theme this month is "Sentiments" so I spend sometime on what sentiment and design I would use and come up with. So I research Copyright Free sentiments on the web and came up with the one I used for my entry as its such lovely sentiment and perfect for your best friend.

I have recently started using a colour wheel that was in Crafters Companion Inspiration Magazine and found it such a handy tool to have and as pushed me out of my comfort zone with using different colours I wouldn't normally use. Hence the colours I have chosen for my entry.. I hope you agree that the colours match so well and dare I say it? I am so proud of this design and colours I've used.   








Crafters Companion items used are - Purple spotty background paper --Angelica & Friends CD ROM (UK), Green stripe pattern background paper -- Crafters Companion Club Inspire Free July download (UK), Flowers were sprayed with Crafters Companion Glitter Spray Multicolour (UK). 

Other items used - Sentiment found from Copyright free sentiments site from the web, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Cream - Purple - Green A4 card stock and Gold mirror board, Adhesive pearl gems.

Sentiment was Print and Cut on Silhouette Cameo, Flowers , leaves and mat and layer were cut again on Silhouette cameo.  

Thank you for passing by my blog today and hope you pass by again and make sure you follow me to keep up with the latest posts and news. Hope I have inspired you in your crafting life and help you get some new ideas.

Bye for now until next time...hopefully it been much cooler by then!!
