I haven't had a chance to blog about last week's colour challenge over at Color Combos Galore yet but there is already a new one up that you can go & check out here if you want to play along for a chance at winning a Midnight Rooster kit or just to be part of the fun & great community there.
The optional Designer's Challenge is to focus on a single person or object as your subject so I choose Cami's new best friend Amber.
I used the mid-month sketch up at Once Upon a Sketch as my inspiration, as it wasn't my fortnight to create for the Design Team there but I really wanted an opportunity to play with the lovely sketch.
Again the lovely Victoria Gardens line from Echo Park came to my rescue & I used all their papers, journaling cards, border stickers, butterfly & flourish sticker.
I added the satin ruffle from last year's Pink Paislee/House of 3 collaboration.
I added a gorgeous Pretty Paper Petals flower (sadly they have now closed their doors to public sales but are still open to wholesale enquiries) & created my cluster with various matching embellies from my stash.
Snuck a doily in there, a floating brad, button, resin lily, bling & some gorgeous metal rose brads & butterfly from Dear Lizzy for American Crafts from last year's Enchanted line.
I added in some mock-stitching using my black journaling pen - just to help the papers stand out more from each other & the grey backgroung & if you look carefully you will see that I also raised up my title "AMBER" using giant-pop dots under each letter & also added some scalloped elastic around the circle (from the newish Crate Paper Neighbourhood line).
