Another colour challenge with a twist.


Hello my friends,
Greetings from South Africa where we are having a holiday today to celebrate the 'Day of Reconciliation'

Today is also the new colour challenge at The Outlawz and my teamie Judith selected the picture and theme for this week's challenge. She has asked us to use the picture for inspiration and add Plaid (checked) fabric. The DT have all made stunning cards with today's theme, so do go and have a look at them for some inspiration.


This is the card I came up with:

 
Paper - I have actually used a paper serviette for the plaid border, and then green and cream cardstock
Image is a rubber stamp from a local company, coloured with a combination of Twinkling H20's and Tombow markers, with pearl finish on the candle and some glitter.
Finished off with a ribbon bow and a peel off sentiment.
