Chicks new challenge...

My friend Cathy, half of Chicks with Inkpads emailed me to ask if I would want to play along with a new challenge they are starting on Tuesday's NATURALLY I said YES!!! Cathy and Donna have such amazing distinctive styles (from each other!) and they are full of inspiration to me!

This week is a colour inspiration challenge; and it was a
perfect fit for me because there was orange!!! For the layout I used SCS220.

I chose Retro Boutique from Gina K - I love this set and it was the perfect image for the layout. The image is stamped with memeto black ink on Gina K's Pure Luxury cs and coloured with copics. I know just four lonely copics on this card!! On the shoes I added crystal effects to the middle yellow pump; although it didn't really show in the picture (sorry!!) For the clasps on 2 of the shoes I grabbed a couple of Taylored Expressions "Taylor's Tiny Twinkles" - which are fantastic although I am always worried about spilling the container!!

The card base is SU Tangerine Tango layered with a piece of SU's whisper white and the yellow DS paper is from Chatterbox called Fabulous Glitter Blooms, the orange is from Cosmo Cricket called Something Blue - I grabbed both of these at Scrapbooker's Paradise North; Gloria knows my weaknesses for paper so every time I go my basket seems to be full!!

Make sure you stop by Chicks with Inkpads to see all the other creations - thanks chicks for the great inspiration; I am looking forward to next week!!
