The Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge - June...

Hi folks...Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful Dads out there. I did momentarily toy with the idea of a male card for this month's Colour Challenge over at The Ribbon Girls but I quickly ditched that thought when I saw the gorgeous floral ingredients in this month's DT parcel.
The colour chosen for June is...
IVORY
and if you've ever browsed the huge selection of paint chips at your local DIY store you'll know there are many many variations of this neutral colour to confuse you. The official definition is...an off white colour with a slight hint of yellow...not much help there...in other words...any shade ranging from pale to golden and everything in between will probably fit the bill...

I created the background with a layer of Tissue Wrap painted with Antique Linen Distress Paint...created some texture with Wendy Vecchi's must-have Crackled Texture Paste and overstamped with a selection of stamps from Wendy's fabulous Studio 490 range inked with Potting Soil and Black Archival Ink...adding a little bit of dotty stencilling here and there.
The Frameworks Trellis and Tattered Florals flower were die cut from Woven Hessian Fabric slightly tinted with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and backed onto double sided adhesive sheet before cutting and I couldn't resist using my favourite TH die AGAIN...Garden Greens before adding gorgeous Cream Daisies...Vintage Style Ivory Pearl Trinket Pins and a Paula Cheney style bow from Cream Seam Binding...


as always there's a fabulous prize for one lucky winner...


But it's time for you to head over to The Ribbon Girls and feast your eyes on the gorgeous makes from my teamies...I'll be back tomorrow to share another Ribbon Girl Colour Challenge make and a challenge it was too...Mr Mojo's deserted his post again and the cubbyhole crew have had to resort to drastic measures.
Enjoy what's left of the weekend whatever you've got planned
Hugs Kath xxx
