CACB #73

Good friday morning fellow bloggers - I'm running a little late with blogging my card this morning. It's time for the new callenge at CACB and this time it's a little more specific. For challenge #73, you have a choice of either a monochrome card in shades of turquoise/aqua, or lilac/purple or you can do a duotone card using both of these colour palettes. These colours only please, this isn't a general monochrome challenge. 

Half of the team have gone monochrome and the other half duotone. I'm in the second camp (just in case you hadn't already guessed!) I love these colour combinations together and given the very grey summer we've had here in the UK, it was nice to make something bright. I created my card in Craft Artist then printed it off and layered it up. What I used:

  • Turquoise backing paper from Tempting Turquoise, Purple paper on nested shape from Imperial purple, silver backing paper from a new kit hitting the shelves imminently.
  • Silver leaf stems from Pretty in Pink, flowers from Sweet Sage (the colour changed in Craft Artist)
  • Peacock Fan digi stamp - coloured digitally. All of these from Crafty Ann's
  • Circular flourish from Modern Lace from Daisy Trail and colour changed in Craft Artist.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
