I'm delighted to be back with my second Design Team card for Colour Create. I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who joined us last week; what an amazing response :o)
Here are the details of this week's challenge then:
Please make your card using Peach and Aqua. You can also use cream/white for your cardstock and flesh colours for any images.
There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'DIY flowers', which means not using any pre made, bought flowers on your cards and projects. Here are some ideas which might help:
Stamp a flower onto card and cut it out
Punch and layer flowers
Die cut flowers
Doodle your own flowers
Peel and mount stickers to form a flower
Use shaped petals eg, hearts to form a flower
Make flowers from Nestie shapes
Make a ribbon flower
I'm sure there are lots more ways, please feel free to come up with your own! Don't forget that embossing, distressing, ink edging, etc will all add to the effect and you could add a stamen to the centre. Also glitter, glossy accents, liquid pearl drops might work well. Unusual materials might include tissue paper, vellum, acetate, chipboard...... just a few ideas.
For my card I used a freebie stamp which came with a craft magazine this month. I created my DIY flowers by using a Sizzix Die for the outer layers and then stamping a smaller flower for the centre.

I hope you can join us this week, these really are fun colours to work with and I know you'll enjoy creating your DIY flowers.
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
