Peony in purple

Good morning all,
I haven't been blogging much the last while, life just seem to happen with some challenges, but hopefully I will get to be on here a little more now.
In South Africa we are having a public holiday today. August is women's month and today we are celebrating Woman's day in aid of all the wonderful women who have contributed to making changes in this country.

This week at The Outlawz  it was my turn to choose the colours and twist for the Colour challenge.

Our sponsor for the month is Fred She Said. They have some lovely precoloured images as well and these I really love at the moment.. The prize is a $10 gift certificate, so I do hope you will come and join us this week.




I used the precoloured image Peony in a jar. This set come with 8 different colour flowers, so that is so useful.

The two colours from the picture I added are ochre and green.

I used an ochre coloured card, embossed it and brushed it with distress ink

The image was cut out with a Nellie Snellen MFD and then I used a green card to cut the frame using the sane set of Nellies dies.

The sentiment is a Whiff of Joy stamp..very old, cut with a label die and attached with brads.

I will enter a few challenges.
