Tantalizing Turquoise

Wendy has chosen the theme for Team Two this week at CD Sunday which is Tantalizing Turquoise. I think it is a fab colour and hopefully everyone will have lots of ideas for this one.

I used a CD called "Here Come the Girls" from Creative Crafting World. It is fast becoming my favourite with lots of lovely backing papers to compliment the main images. It also has digi images so for people like me who love colouring it is the best of both worlds!

Here is the card:

I printed off a sheet of the digi images and have used the following Spectrum Noir pens to colour her:

GT1, GT3, BT1, BT2, BT3, BT4, BT5, BT7, FS1, FS4

I have used two of the coordinating backing papers from the CD. I put one of the backing papers in an embossing folder from Crafter's Companion and then rubbed colour from a Distress Ink pad on top to highlight the embossed images. I then die cut some swirls and a butterfly and finished off with some paper flowers, gems and ribbon.

Having done that I thought it would be nice to decorate one of the gift bags I bought from Creative Crafting World in readiness for my friend's birthday.

I used a sheet of turquoise paper from my stash to cover both sides of the bag and then decorated the front using the same ribbon, paper flowers, some of the left over backing paper and another coloured digi image.

I hope this has given you some ideas and that you will go over to CD Sunday Challenge Blog and see the lovely things my fellow teamies have done. I look forward to visiting your blog and seeing more Tantalizing Turquoise.

PS, don't forget to use something from a CD and to let us know which CD you have used. :-)
