Chris has released these gorgeous new images just in time for some new challenges at our Papercraft Planet Group and our Simply Scrapping Group! Our first weekly challenge for May is a colour theme challenge:
If you're not a member I would love you to come over to Papercraft Planet and join me for our new challenges! This is the first of many exciting new challenges and you don't want to miss out! Chris has a gorgeous "Lulu" freebie image so you can jump right in and join the challenges - all the details and deadlines are on the group site and there are some great opportunities to win some wonderful images!
Here's my 'creation' for this challenge - I love these colours LOL that's why we've started out with this theme for May!! My Angled Easel Card has the new "Blossom on a Branch" image and also a great CS Design sentiment "Thinking of You".
The papers I have used from the 6 x 6 BasicGrey "Origins" Paper Pad - fantastic 'nature' colours for this challenge. I've used several Spellbinder dies for cutting shapes and making flowers.
The paper covered tree branch with leaves and the flying bird are chipboard shapes from the "Collections" range which I have covered with the patterned paper. I sanded the edges to get a neater finish and then sponged the edges with some brown ink to cover any white showing and to give it a softer look.
