Pearls and Swirls

This is my entry for the latest Colour Create Challenge. The colours to be used are Hot Pink, Dusky Pink and Ice Chocolate with the option of Pearls and Swirls. The base card was some I found in my stash which I inked around the edges with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. Then I stamped the swirls in two corners and added the pearls. (not sure who the stamp is by but bought in The Craft Barn) The bird image is from a set by Inkadinkadoo which I stamped onto more card from my stash with Versamark and coloured the bird with Cosmic Shimmers and the branch with chalks. This is layered onto a circle of Bazzil card which I have distressed. Lastly I added the tabs and the tiny punched flowers. Hope you like it.


  1. Oh wow Fiona, this is all very much up my street!
    Fantastic stamping, and I love how you've coloured the image. You just don't see many cards using pearly powders and chalks, I think they are very underrated. The effect is so soft and pretty.
    And I adore the swirl corner stamp...ooh we have so much in common lol.
    Love Sarita xx
