Coffe and Cream + Simon Says DT Call

This is my 2nd Post today,  I wanted to tell you that Simon Says Stamps Challenge have a wonderful challenge this week with the theme of Coffee & Cream.  One of my favourite colour combo's when I'm not creating in Pink. lol.   Not only that,  they are also looking for someone to join them in the Design Team, so I thought I might have a wee try out.  No harm in dreaming.!!  

I've used the sweet Melinda with Bouquet stamp by Elizabeth Bell from Whiff of Joy, coloured her with  Pro Markers and popped some glamour dust on her delicate wings.  My papers are from K&Co Classic 4x6 Mat Pad. I used a spellbinders pendant (Fair Isle) die and distressed it with TH tea dye and brushed corduroy inks. The Flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts but they have been altered, I ripped them apart and re assembled them to enable me to use the corduroy brads which have been coloured with pro markers as they were originally white.  The little charm is from my stash, pearls from Prima and webbing from Bunny Zoe's Crafts.

I may be back a little later with another creation,  I'm on a roll today so I'll keep going whilst the crafting ideas are flowing.  Thank you so much for popping in to visit, I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Mummm yummy! I am such a brown person these days - I am just drooling over these colors. I wish I had time to play in that challenge. I was eyeing your flowers and wondering about them so I'm glad you explained about taking them apart and rebuilding them - they look totally fabulous with the corduroy brads!

Have a super weekend!
