LIM week 183 - colour challenge




The challenge on Less is More this week is a colour one - using this palette.....

color sip

I used a stencil from Clever cuts for the diamonds, stencilling through TH inks and then I ran the base card through an embossing folder to put more diamonds on the card. Finishing touch is a die from Clearly Besotted. As with all things from Clearly Besotted - I have become besotted with this die, so watch out for it again very soon!

We had a lovely week away in the Peak District last week, not too far to travel and lots to do without taking the car. But, we had one day where we ventured into Manchester and I went to the hairdressers - see below.
It is of course Audrey's hair salon from Coronation Street, we went on the tour and it was fantastic. So strange to see something in real life that you have seen on the TV and to realise how small it all is. We also got to see the old dressing rooms, green room and make up room and some of the room sets.
They even had Roy and Hayley's snowpeople.
