Colour Create Challenge - Chocolate, Coffee & Cream

Another great colour combination to use today at Colour Create Challenge - Chocolate, Coffee and Cream. I coloured the Gorjuss Girl with Copics, used Daisy Bucket papers, Tim Holtz Journaling and Adage Tickets, cotton lace, Papermania pearl brads and Prima clear gems and flowers. The lace flower was made by gathering the lace. An added extra to this week's challenge is to use distressing on your project, so I took the scissors to most of the edges and inked them up.
I just had to share this photo which I took yesterday - the epitome of Spring! Aren't they just delightful and very appropriate to see new life on this Easter Day - doesn't mum look proud? We are very lucky to live close to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which is a truly beautiful place and well worth a visit if you are in the area - get your walking boots on though! That's where we spotted these beauties and there is work on display from Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore and many other famous sculptors - all in a natural tranquil setting of Yorkshire countryside with it's dramatic scenery and amazing trees. And best of all - it's free (car park £4 for the day)!!!
Here's a couple more tasters to persuade you ......

Thanks for visiting xx

Edited to add that the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is just off Junction 38 of the M1 on the A637 - more info on the website http://www.ysp.co.uk/view.aspx?id=3 - enjoy!
