Die Cut Dreams Challenge #96 Pink, Green and Coffee.

Hi everyone, finally back in business after a fun packed holiday in Edinburgh. I have now experienced the famous "Fringe" festival, having watched two street performers and one in a venue. Now we saw a man juggling on a unicycle, a man blowing loads of bubbles and a rather rude Australian comic juggler. Who would you say the kids liked the best???? Yep you guessed it, the bad mouthed Australian!!! He used every B word going but he had us in stitches and was by far my favourite too!!!!

Sorry for the diversion - back to business with the next challenge at Die Cut Dreams which is ..


Here is my DT card..............

and a closeup.......

I have used a favourite of mine - Dinner Tilda who has been coloured with watercolour crayons. I have added pearls for her necklace and bracelet. I have sat her on a frame made by the Spellbinders Labels One. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley - Inspirational Sentiments - and the plate is coloured with TH Distress Ink Worn Lipstick and then sprayed with Pearl Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. The background is a page from an old book, torn and distressed with more distress inks - Tea Dye and Vintage Photo I think and then sparayed again and finally stamped with a swirl stamp (can't find it at the moment - sorry).

I really looke forward to seeing your creations. If you would like some more inspiration please check out my teammates blogs - their links are on my left sidebar.
