Fabulous News AND Colour Create Challenge - Blue and Green

I am so excited to be able to tell you that I have been asked to join the Colour Create Challenge Design Team on a permanent basis - one of my very favourite challenges! How lucky am I?

Beautiful rich colours are the order of the day this week at Colour Create Challenge, and this photo is sure to inspire - well it did it for me! The extra element is to use paper piecing if you wish.

I loved working with these colours and this Gorjuss Girl - I paper pieced her dress and coloured the rest of her with Copics. I can't remember where the paper is from, but it fitted perfectly and I chopped and snipped at it to create the bands across the middle and the leaves. The flowers are Making Memories Sweets and the sentiment is stamped with a few pearlised gems added.

I'm really loving these colour challenges and the other DT examples are sure to inspire you - if you haven't already, why not give it a go?
