GC 56 Colour Challenge - Wall Hanging

Hope you all had a lovely BH weekend  I had a fabby day yesterday we (DH and me) decided to have a restful day it was nearly a pj day only we don't wear them (ok way to much information)!!! so old sloppy clothes were slipped on and off I went to my craft room - bliss, I got inky very inky and then inky some more not just my fingers but all over my pale pink teeshirt own fault should have put on a black one- but I had fun.  My inspiration was the theme at Gingersnap Creations GC56 Colour Challenge, burgundy, ivory and black which is one of my all time favourite colour combo's.  Now I have in my box of things to alter - oneday - a few clipboards not saying how many though :-)  so this was my base for this challenge.

Firstly I went all around the edges of the clipboard with Black Soot Distress Inks, the Bravo Burgundy background card was then put through my bigshot with a sizzix embossing plate, which I then distressed with Black Soot DI. I also stamped the flourish from Tim Holtz Visual Artistry Collection - Regal Flourishes and embossed in black. Nesties were used to cut the sentiment panel which I stamped from Tim Holtz collection Stampers Anonymous- Good Thoughts in Bravo Burgundy Stampin' Up! and inked edges, applied stickles glitter to the heart and butterflies - got to have sparkle! the heart shape and scallop square under sentiment panel were cut with the slice and inked with aged mahogany DI and stamped in black - stamps used were from Stampin' Up! solid stripes and AtoZ. Twill tape is also SU. Altered Tag Tim's Idea-ology, flowers were in my stash. The cream scalloped edge panel was stamped with another Tim Holtz set as above called French Market - yes I am obsessed with his stamps!!!! The punch was SU.
