Put some sunglasses on before you read this!

Don't say I didn't warn you. I was looking for some inspiration and checked out Splitcoast Stampers Colour Challenge ... this one particular combination just caught my eye for some reason. It's so BRIGHT! The colours are Real Red, Pink Passion and Summer Sun.

I used the same trick as the other day to create the yellow ribbon - a few drops of Summer Sun and a tiny drop or two of water in a little container, then drop in your white grosgrain ribbon and shake vigorously for a few minutes. You have to make sure that the ribbon is blotted dry on paper towel or something and then left to sit until it's completely dry before you use it though, or it'll get everywhere.

And I used a little of the Crystal Effects on the red centre of the flower to give it a bit of punch. It looks very neat in real life. I keep wanting to touch it!

PS: as you see, my camera is back from its holiday safe and sound ... it was used about ten times on Day 1 of camp then not looked at again. Next time I'll buy her a disposable film camera to take I think.
