Jems Bloghop, colour challenge, Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Sweet Sugarplum.

Its that time of the month again,  doesn't it come around quickly. March bloghop for the Jems.




This month the gems challenge is colour based. It is based around the colours of the new products available free with a qualifying order - the three colours of the glitter paper in sale-a-bration.


I haven't got these yet so I have used the inks to create a little something.



Wild about Flowers stamp set which I love,  the flower stems are in Mint Macaron, the flower heads stamped in Bernuda Bay then a few petite petals along the rim. I have die cut some dragonflies in vellum. These have been coated in fine tip glue then when dry painted with wink of stella. They really do glisten and give the whole piece an ethereal look. The background is the 'Falling in Love' designer paper.





This one below if the whole creation before I painted the embroidery frame. I can't decide which one I like the best. What do you think?
