OFF THE RAILS - new challenge is up!

We have a gorgeous colour palette & sketch challenge up at OFF THE RAILS:
And the colours:
 Here's what I created:
  A lovely eclectic mix of elements including a 'bouquet' of stick pins wrapped in washi tape, some fussy cut balloon stamps & Heidi Swapp ephemera [since I was using her paper!!]. Tucked in is my 'fave' star stamp from 3rd Eye:)
 I decided to do some 'butterfly trails' instead of all the little hearts...so out came my Purple Pumpkin twine:)
 And I've tucked some chippy [win from Dusty Attic] underneath my photo, too....I got gesso all over my 1st photo, so I had to print off a 2nd one & lay it over top. OOOPS!!!
 The Dear Lizzy [how appropriate!!] chippy title is a gift from Sandra S...THANK YOU...barely recognisable, as I was trying to change its colour WITHOUT adding a base coat of gesso.
Of course, that didn't work...the ink sorta 'pooled' so I whacked on some white embossing powder & this is what I got!
I've also rubbed some pink Gelato in to give it some 'depth'. I thought it turned out OK, in the end *winks*!!
This challenge runs for 2 weeks  & we have an amazingly FABULOUS prize from FLOURISH WITH A BLING!!!!
Gotta be in it to win it:) We'd LOVE to see you join the fun at OFF THE RAILS:)
Cheers ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
