RoP Challenge 20 - Colour challenge

Whoppee!! Another week has flown, my goodness how does time fly?? :) We really need to make the most of each day that God gives us!

Moreover two weeks passed from the last RoP challenge, and thank you.. we had such lovely response and great creations! Thank God for Random Integer, otherwise it would be a torture having to choose from the enormous talent out there! Yesterday a fresh challenge started, I'm sorry I was busy to post it then. Also in the evening I'm getting rather tired.. dunno the cause!

Anyway.. enough talk.. onto the challenge :) This week it was talented Susan's turn to choose the theme. Susan LOVES colour challenges, and boy did I love this combo!
for this challenge she wanted to see cards with :

Lavender, Soft Blue and Cream!

Now here comes the challenge's rules. Please read carefully if you intend to participate (which I highly recommend as the prize is GREAT!) Remember that we also permit you to combine the challenge with others, but the work must be new; and remember to link your post to RoP challenge blog, so that our friends will find us as well.

**Please read these details carefully as the qualifying stamp companies have changed! We will no longer be taking Sarah Kay or Rachelle Anne Miller stamps in our challenges as I can no longer carry them in my store. The only qualifying brands of stamps that can be used now are: Belles 'n Whistles, Magnolia, Alota, Greeting Farm OR Bildmalarnas (*NEW to Roses on Paper!*) stamp in order to qualify!**

The prize for this challenge will be an exciting new

Belles 'n Whistles stamp from Summer's not-yet-released Fall Collection
as well as a new Bildmalarna, Mimosa with Umbrella
! Whoooo hooo

This is the sample card I did for this challenge. I used Ballerina Anya, she is cute, and even though it is not one of their most recent releases, but my hand keeps reaching out for it. I love her cuteness, and I had people ask me whether I intend to make Ballerina Cards again (they buy them a lot here, as we have quite a lovely number of children who choose to do Ballet lessons.. or their mothers choose.. lol)

I coloured her in Copics and used Stickles for Bling. I cut out the image and mounted her on a nestie shape, using glue on the left hand side, and mini foam pads on her lifted for and arm on the right hand side. She looks like she's really dancing.

Look at this photo, it shows the dimension this gave to Anya.

By the way, before I mounted the image on the nestie shape, I inked the background with Mulled Lavender Distress Ink, leaving the nestie die on so that I leave a white border. Next I did some faux stitching around.

The inside is simple, yet effective. I used that strip of embossed flowers, luckily it had the three colours I needed! Lucky indeed :)

I must be off now... there are kids to feed, and chores to do.. and NEW images to colour!!
Brace yourself for some cuteness later this week ;) recipe and colours used on this card below.

Really lovely effect with the way you've mounted Anya. She is beautiful with her glittering tutu. Lovely details all over the card as well.
