Colour Create Challenge

I was picked as the Guest Designer for this week on Colour Create and I just wanted to say Thank You

The colours this week are Duck Egg Blue and Rose and the optional extra challenge is to use stitching either real or faux.

I decided to make a little notepad this week.
I covered it in the Rose paper first which came from a pack from QVC
Then folded the blue paper to add effect.
I used my Tria markers to add the faux stitching
The image is a Penny Black clear stamp stamped onto white card
I chose to keep the dog black n white and just to use a gelly glaze pen to make his nose shine and my Tria markers on the rose
Again I faux stitched around the image, then mounted it on mira board
I used my bind it all to put it together
To finish I used I piece of stitched ribbon to make a bow

Hope you like it and thank you for having me on Colour Create
