CD 571 - Thinking of You

 Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 571!

You must use black and white plus ONE colour of your choice. No big surprise that for me, that extra colour was turquoise. 

I ink blended a piece of white cardstock with Salvaged Patina and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks so there is a slight darkening of the colour toward the bottom. I adhered that panel to a white card base with craft foam. A leaf image was die cut from white cardstock and adhered to the inked panel. I stamped a sentiment in black and added it at the side and I also drew some dots around the leaves using a white gel pen. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you interpret this week's challenge. 

You have two weeks to link up your project. 

We can’t wait to see what you create!
