OCC Colour Challenge

Well I saw all the fabulous entries by the DT on OCC for the colour challenge and thought
I'd throw my hat in the ring. It's not a patch on theirs,
but I quite like how it's turned out.






I've used Core-dinations CS. Blueberry and Navy. I stamped the swirl background with an Impression Obsession background stamp, called funnily enough... Swirl Background. LOL. I inked it with a Cat's Eye ink pad, Blue Iris, as it matched the navy CS. Sizzlits die used for the swirl. Dovecraft ribbon, which I thought was a pretty close match for the Blueberry CS. The flowers are on a length I bought from a haberdashers yonks ago. I added a blob of Stickles 'Waterfall' to the centers, for a touch of glitter. The sentiment is a stamp by Hero Arts. I even did some sewing!

Thanks for dropping in. Viv xx
