A touch of teal ...

... for this card I've used papers and elements from a Docrafts 'touch of teal' kit that I bought a long time ago - probably four or five years. The card was made from offcuts, one piece being cut with a scalloped nestie and then brushed with black soot distress ink.

The card is based on the January: between the lines sketch on Kathy's waffle sketch file:

Colours are for Daring cardmakers January colour challenge:

  1. Beautiful card. The oval with it's multiple layers really pops. Love the sentiment and the gorgeous colors. Thanks for playing along with us at The Sketch File.

  2. Oooer Hazel, I love this! Great colours and I wouldn't mind a single wall papered like the background :) Fat chance, DH has a hatred of wallpapers - he didn't put THAT on his CV when we met :(
