Magenta July Colour Challenge

Girly, fresh and flowery fun... that was my first impression when I saw Magenta's July Colour Challenge and it inspired me to create this layout...

Supplies: patterned papers, stamps, corrugated letters (Magenta), cardstock and marker (CTMH), fabric chipboard letters (American Crafts), ink (Ranger), punch (Stampin' Up), Glimmer Mists (Tattered Angels), baker's twine (Maya Road), jewel brads, tissue paper, flower confetti and flower petals (Dollarama), pen (Steadtler) and thread (Aurifil Mako' ne)

I remembered the preprinted 5x7 photo that I had of my niece's SK graduation sitting in my "photos to scrap" photo box and knew it would be the perfect colour complement for this challenge.

I used all 5 colours, a bit of sanding to tone down the dark purple paper, distressed edges, and some double chevron and boarder stitching.

Then came the embellis starting with the punched tie-dyed tissue paper flower that I had made previously from my experiment in tie-dying that you might remember from my Fly, Soar layout blog post

Baker's twine leaves, mini cut fabric flower petals and mini confetti flowers with title work, hand journaling and stamping complete the layout.

The chevron stamp and the Carpe Diem stamps are both new from the Magenta 2013 catalogue released in the June.

You have until later this month to complete this challenge so give it a go and be sure to link it to the challenge post for a chance to win Magenta product.

Speaking of catalogues, there is also a new releases catalogue up at Magenta.

I can't wait to play with some of the new stamps from this line.  The collection has some really pretty seasonal patterned papers that you should check out.  They are Winter & Christmas in theme but so versatile in design and colours, that they can be used for oodles of non Christmas/Winter related projects.  They will only be available by preorder request so sure to ask your local scrappy supply place to order them.
