Colour inspiration at The Outlawz

Good morning friends and a Happy Spring day.

Yes it is Spring here in South Africa, not officially until 21 September, I think, but it is definitely Spring. Warm temperatures, lovely green shoots on the trees, daffodils, sweet peas and many more all flowering...a beautiful time of the year.

I have made my first card in 6 weeks and it did almost feel like I was a beginner, but I am sure in a week or so I hope to feel like a pro.

This week for the Colour challenge
at The Outlawz, Susan has challenged us with a beautiful inspirational photo...just perfect for those lovely evenings we are having. To enter the challenge just use whatever inspires you from this photo.

Our sponsor this month is All Dressed Up and for my card I used a freebie image called Butterflies which you can find HERE
Please go and check out the cards made by the DT, to see what inspired them.

My inspiration was the colours and the flowers.

This is what I used:

Image - coloured with Distress inkpads, cut with a Nellie's MFD.

Paper - I used a new paper pad from the JBS collection, my DIL brought me from The Netherlands.

The flowers were made using Nellie Snellen floral punches and all coloured with Distress inkpads.

Added pearls and some glitter.

Sentiment is a Hero Arts stamp.

Through the Craftroom Door...Anything goes
