DYSU Week #44 - Teal

Hi All,
How you doing this Thursday morning? Ready for our next challenge over at Do You Stack Up? I hope!! This week we want to see something Teal coloured on your creations - it can be a little or a lot, the choice is as always,. yours.

As usual, we have some fantastic sponsors and great prizes:

 The Craft's Meow - Winner's choice of 1 stamp set

Copic Marker Scrapbooking6 Copic Ciao Markers (North/South America), Martha Stewart punch (rest of the world)

Stretch 'n Bubbles - Winner's choice of 4 digis

For my card this week, I got to use this fun flower design which you can find here at Stretch 'n Bubbles. I started out by searching the internet for Teal as I had a rough idea of what it should look like but wanted to be sure - however there were so many different shades coming up that I decided to go with several shades of teal green!!!

This is a close-up of the design and you can just see a sneaky peak of the decoupaging I did. I kept the card fairly simple - just a few bits of bling, one patterned paper, a sentiment, bakers twine and a button. Oh and some glossy accents too!

Here's a side-on picture of the decoupage.

So - that's my offering for this week's challenge and I hope you will play along too. The rest of the DT have created some fab inspiration for you so do go over to the DYSU blog and check it out.

Medium - Promarkers
Paper - "Pampered Pets" - magazine freebie
Cardstock and gems - stash
Bakers Twine - gift from our leader - thank you Alison xx
