Colour Create

Challenge 2 - Peach & Aqua

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, Stitch 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.Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!

The flower stamp is by Hero Arts which I coloured with Prismas and Sansador. The turquoise/aqua paper is from Pink Petticoat and the aqua coloured scalloped card is a 'Ruffle' from Craftwork Cards and it's all tied together with peach ribbon from Ribbon Oasis

I haven't added a sentiment yet as I'm not too sure whether to make it a Mother's Day card or make some more and use them as notecards to give to MiL on Mother's Day!
