A Quick Post for the Color Hues Challenge

 Just adding this quick post for the Colour Hues Challenge
I saw Nancy's Reminder this morning and
as I had a wee bit of time up my sleeve I thought
I would make a quick card as I love using Kraft Paper.

Because time was running out I decided to
use an old SU favourite just using the dies
from the Botanical Blooms Set.
Added some splatters from Tim's Speckles Stencil
with the specified colours.
The leaves were cut from kraft paper,
flowers inked/smooched with Nuvo Shimmer Powder.
Sentiment from STAMPlorations.
Finished with twine and pearls and
adhered to kraft card base. 
That stamp/die set makes for such an easy
and quick make as it was here.
So glad I finally got time to play with my 
good friend Nancy's Challenge.
Such a relaxing afternoon with the AC on
(so hot here today and will be for a few days to come)

Thanks for popping in

What's the 'Trend' at Just Us Girls?

 This weeks Trend Challenge for Just Us Girls is a first for me - 
Sue is our Host and wants to see

I thought I would 'try' colouring the lovely 
Australian Cooktown Orchid Spray from
 Inspired by Stamping. 
They are mostly 'purple' and became Queensland's
floral emblem in 1959 during celebrations to mark
the state's centenary.
I did try and replicate it somewhat here
using distress inks, gelatos and
Colourblast and LuminArte pots of colour.
Added a background wash and some splatters.
Finished with the Cooktown Orchid Sentiment
framed with purple and onto kraft card base.
Hope I get a pass!
Pop over and see how our Guest Joyce and the Team
showed off their no line watercolour creations.
I look forward to seeing many beautiful cards
in our Gallery this week.
Till next time -
