PaperArtsy blog challenge Topic #5 'Blue and Ochre'

Hello everyone and welcome here.
Tonight over on the PA blog challenge Topic#5 'Blue and Ochre' which you can see fabulous samples and GD projects here.
Also I was very inspired by them works Lesley --Crafty Love N Hugs--and Hazel--Mellifluous Meanderings.

I used TH's Distress Oxide pads and Darcy's stamps for the challenge.
I chosen Broken China, Faded Jeans, Fossilized Amber and Wilted Violet Distress Oxide for the background. I stamped some script by Potting Soil Archival on the another watercolor paper. Then I used Darcy's flower stamps by same Potting Soil Archival on the paper. I fussy cut, placed and stuck them by 3D foam on the background. I made the laces and wire embellishment , finished with the letters of Dream. 
Thank you so much dropping by.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

  1. What a beautiful entry to the challenge Etsuko. The Oxides are wonderful to use aren't they. I now have to wait a couple of weeks for them to come back into stock over here to get mine after my playtime with Hazel but they really are a must have.

    Wow, I am amazed at your skilful fussy cutting! Fabulous!
