Secret Crafters- Colour Theme

Happy Saturday one & all! It's Easter weekend & the weather is holding up, all is well!! It was gorgeous Bridget's turn to choose the theme at Secret Crafters this week. She chose one you'll all love,


Furthermore I got the opportunity to ink up an image I'd been longing to get my inky mitts on for ages. I met a lovely lady with oodles of stash, you know who you are - Big Waves!! She let me ink us this gorgeous old Sugar Nellie image by Elizabeth Bell. It has now been rereleased by Belles & Whistles, but this is the original & it's really big!

She's coloured with Distress Inks, available at the Secret Crafter shop, here & the papers are Gossamer by Memory Box, one of my faves! Because the image was so big, there was not room for much in the way of extras. I used Holo Iridescent glitter round the edge of the card again from Secret Crafters, & I threaded a piece of ribbon though some lace behind the image. She's finished off with some hydrangea petals & a bit of bling.

It looks like my lovely D-Teamies at Secret Crafters enjoyed this challenge as much as I did. Hop on over & check out their stunning creations.

I would also like to enter this at a couple of other challenges too.

Cute Card Thursday want to see cards with no text on.

The challenge at Totally Gorjuss is 'Bling it on'.
So that's all for now, thanks for looking!
Happy Easter!
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
