The Color Room April Challenge

Another Challenge layout completed - I do love public holidays!!!  The colour yellow and the picture of kitchen cupboards on the inspiration board reminded me of the flowers growing under the kitchen window of my sister in laws house.  So here is my layout:

I started with a reverse chicken wire stencil and texture paste.  Marigold Glimmermist and Gelatoes - Lemon Butterscotch and Chocolate were added to create a water colour effect and edges.  Stamping on the background using brown ink and Tim Holtz and Kaisercraft Stamps.

All the flowers & leaves were made using Heartfelt Creations Astra Die cut.  The edges of the flowers were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Tea Dye and embossed in glitter embossing powder. The centre of the flowers are a combination of brads and beads.

The gate and fence as well as the bouquet to the side are die cuts from Memory Box.  The bee is a Little B embellishment.

The "weekend" is my clothing tag.  The bird is also a Little B embellishment.  The string of flowers are mod podge melts I made and coloured with Lemon Gelatoes.  The birdhouse is a Cheery Lynn die cut.

The small grey and black flowers are from Petaloo.
