Playing with Patchwork

Today I thought I would post a card that I made at the weekend using a lovely Time For Tea Digistamp from Polkadoodles, couple with a lovely pastel coloured paper from Bearly Mine Designs.

I seem to be having a bit of a thing for the decoupage at the moment, so once again, i have printed out the digi a number of times and coloured and layered her up.

This time around I picked the paper first and coloured the image to match, which makes the colour decisions so much easier as it's just a case of comparing my hand made colour chart to the paper and going with the closest matches....easy peazy!!!
I also used some of the different coloured patches to punch out my flower embellishments, which I then finished off with a generous dab of Stickles Pearl paint.

Finally, I followed the Saturday Sketch challenge for the layout of my card.

So now on to my bunch of challenges for today:

Cutie Pie - Lots of Layers
Love to Create - Punches or Dies
Penny's Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend - Dies and Punches
