Colour challenge ~ Be Merry

I had the perfect photo for the Scrap Friends colour challenge this month. The photo is of Butchart Gardens last winter.  We always visit their 12 Days of Christmas display at night when the coloured lights are glowing magically. 

Here is the Colour Challenge. Gorgeous pinks, grey and yellow.
I started with this Simple Stories paper.  Check out the entire line in Unforgettable Memories.

I used my number stencil and white texture paste.  Then I painted it with pink Maya Roads glimmer mist.  I swiped yellow Making Memories paint across my background and splashed droplets of darker pink Glimmer Mist.  I got pretty messy with it.
I added random pieces of text Washi Tape, lots of bling and some black rub-ons from my stash.

The title is underlined with a couple of 6" bling strips.  Unforgettable Memories has all different colours of these bling strips. Very pretty!

 The yellow and pinky/purple paper strips are plain glossy paper I've covered with alcohol inks. The stickers are from the Echo Park sticker sheet I used on my last layout.  It was still on my desk and some of the designs were grey and black which worked with my colour scheme.

I hope you'll pull out those paints and inks and make a mess.  ~ Heather
