The Colour Room

The Colour Room is celebrating it's 50 colour palette. Steph Devlin asked me to have a go at doing the palette, as I have never done one before. I loved the colours in the palette so decided I would. I used white cardstock for my base and added another cardstock in the middle shade of blue. I chose one of Prima's new print papers in the lighter shade of the blue with white spots. It looked a little flat on the darker blue bazzill, so I gave it a lift by putting another white cardstock in between them. I punched the corners with a Martha Stewart punch. I cut a piece of Amy Buttler print paper to add to the layout on the right side. Over the top I place two torn pieces of one of the new Prima papers, its the one with small butterflies. I had Imaginarium Designs do me a large butterfly in chipboard. I painted it white and then sprayed it with Marshmallow Glimmermist. Once dry I painted it with rock candy crackle paint. To add some blue to the butterfly I stamp some french writing scrip all over it with a blue ink pad. I used the same ink pad to colour the frame to match. I used copic markers to colour some clear crystals from Prima to get the exact colour I wanted. I added two large white Prima flowers and again with the copic marker I coloured in two smaller white flowers. I added some skeleton leaves, a maya road pearl pin and ribbon. I used Imaginarium Designs chipboard letters for Kates name. On top of the chipboard I used some Prima felt letters. I added some glitter on top of the felt letters to give them a lift.
