Kreative Koncepts Colour Challenge #25 Guest Designer

I am loving the colour challenges over at Kreative Koncepts (formerly Scrap Friends).  I was lucky enough to be a random winner in March/April Challenge #23 with my "The Girls" layout and received an opportunity to Guest Design for the May/June Colour Challenge #25.

Again, it is a colour board that speaks to me and my stash of pretty papers. Such beautiful bright cheery colours and I knew just what collection I wanted to use.

Supplies: patterned papers (Bazzill), stencil (Magenta), Whipped Spackle and gelato (Faber-Castell), wood veneer title (Studio Calico), wood veneer leaves (Recollections), tissue paper and floral pieces (Dollarama), gesso (Golden), pen (Staedtler)

I have had this Margie Romney-Aslett's Bazzill Basics Vintage Marketplace patterned paper since it was first released.  It is so pretty and perfect for this colour challenge.  The roses tied into the inspiration photo too.

I used some pre-prepped tissue that I had made while experimenting with gelatos and tissue paper when I made my "Sister's layout".  I coloured the white tissue paper with Metalic Melon gelato and then saturated it with water to activate the gelato. It had a very shimmery satin/silk feel which totally worked with the colour board inspiration photo of the silk pillow.

I used my favourite Magenta butterfly stencil with Faber-Castell's Whipped Spackle.  Love the consistency of this product which varies from molding paste as it is a whipped gesso. You only need a little as it goes a long way.  It is easy to use and dries quickly.

The florals are from Dollarama but they all were actually parts of two separate candle rings.  I bought them with the intent of taking them apart and using them on a project.  Again, an item that is ideally suited for this challenge as it goes with the branched and floral design in the inspiration photo fabric on the chair.

Check out the other beautiful takes on the challenge and come join in here.

Congratulations, Cassandra! This is beautiful! I think that little bit of gingham ribbon is my favorite part. Such great texture!
