Quiet Sunday Afternoon

Afternoon folks.
All is quiet at the mo, Al is playing on his ancient tractor and Ben and co have gone to a Christening in Liverpool. It's just me and the dog and some time to craft.
Doing my DT comments has opened up a world of different challenges that I haven't come across before, it's so good to find them, even better when you feel inspired.
On Wednesday I bought a couple of dies from The Craft Box before class. I pushed the boat out with one from a new company that I haven't seen before, Little B. I had to have a play! I also bought a fab rose die from Memory Box so I combined the two.

The new challenge at colourQ is to use these colours in your design.

Now these colours are from Stampin Up and I don't have any but I used what I had to make this.

As the rose image is actually a die cut I had to work out how to deal with it. I decided to die cut it, cover it in Versamark and then heat emboss in clear. I glued the outline to white card and used Copics (RV93,95,99,YG 03,13,17) to colour the leaves and flowers. I used a Spellbinders die to cut the white circle then a slightly larger one in bright yellow.
I used 2 of my Little B dies to cut and emboss the Kraft square which I mounted on a white square base card.
I shall also enter it in the latest CASology challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a good rest of the day.
