Soul Mates

Hello everyone :)
 Hope you have all had a great week I missed last weeks C4E challenge due to a very important Birthday party! Alix was 6 last week and asked for a Pokemon themed party with his friends. I ended up making 2 birthday cakes, 20 Pikachu hats, goodie bags, decorations and  games. Alix and his friends had a fabulous time but I don't want to see another Pikachu for a very long time lol!

 So on to this weeks challenge, we have two prizes up for grabs from regular sponsors Stamping All Day and The Digi Garden.
As always there is gorgeous inspiration from the DT.
The challenge this week is to use the colour inspiration below.

I dragged out my inks, paints, masks and stamps to create this layout...

 There are diecut canvas flowers, flatback gems, Basic Grey Brads, washers, newspaper, stitching. beads, chipboard flourishes, crackle paint, Thickers Glitter Alphas and probably a few other things I've forgotten, on this page. 

 The couple in the photo are my parents many years ago in the '70's.
Love the striped sofa!!

I found some very old stencils buried in my tool box. Loved the bird stencil !

 I really tried hard not to add pattern paper but it needed some contrast so I tore some strips off the newspaper I was working on!

 The washers got a coat of crackle paint. It didn't crackle too well but I still liked them!
The pretty chandelier stamp was a freebie from Craft Stamper magazine.
You can share your Raspberry inspired projects with us  HERE
Have a fab weekend!
