Something from Nature is the twist

Happy Tuesday,
It is a beautiful autumn day here with lovely clear skies, warm sunshine and just a slight autumnal breeze to keep things comfortable.



For the colour challenge at The Outlawz this week we have a gorgeous colour palette given us by my teamie Laura, We needed to use at least 3 colours and add the twist ... something from nature.


We don't have a sponsor this month but our winner will receive a $10 gift certificate for Raspberry Road Designs. For inspiration please pop in and see the amazing projects that the DT have made.


I used 3 colours, pink, purple and yellow from the colour palette and how I made the card.





Patterned paper from my stash.

Background made with Distress inkpads on watercolour paper. Butterflies stamped with Distress inkpads in Festive berries, Dusty concord and Fossilized Amber.

The centre image stamped and coloured with some of the distress inks used, then matted onto pink card and raised with 3D tape.

Finished off with pearls.

The stamps are all from Papermania - Urban Stamps, Botanical print.
