Papaya Colour Q...

Hi there,

I was playing with the new Papaya Collage set coming in the new catty in October and when I saw the colour combo at Colour Q this week I got inspired...

So pretty!! Here's what I came up with...

I was inspired by the flowers on the cups so I used the beautiful rose image from Papaya Collage, stamping it with Stazon on white and colouring with Wisteria Wonder, Rich Razzleberry, So Saffron and Old Olive inks. I stamped a couple of extra leaves so I could add a few more around the flowers. The frame was stamped with Sahara Sand and cut out with my paper snips - I masked two of the corners with post-it notes and stamped the leaves with Old Olive ink. The sentiment was stamped on vellum with Rich Razzleberry ink and adhered over the leaves (love how this worked out!). The So Saffron background was stamped with the butterfly image from the same set and sponged around the edges with So Saffron ink. I added some faux stitching with a Sahara Sand marker and finished things off with some ruffled white organza ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by!
