December Colour Your World Blog Hop

Colour Your World Header
It’s time for another Colour Your World Blog Hop, and sadly this will be the last one – after 2 years (can you believe it has been that long already!) the CYW team have decided it is time to take a break and try some new things.  So, enjoy this last colour inspiration for now and keep an eye out for some new things coming next year!

I was inspired by the sunset in this photo so decided to recreate it for this month’s card. My 11 year old daughter is obsessed with cats and stops to talk to them whenever we see one so it was an obvious choice to include a cat on a brick wall enjoying that last of the sun!

I used all 4 colours and my sponge brayer to create the sunset. I love the sponge brayer and having a couple in each pack means you don’t have to wash the brayer each time you want to add another colour – this allows you to go back and add more of each colour as needed.  I finished off the brayering with a sun burst image from one of the Sale-a-Bration stamp sets that will be available in January – Amazing You.

The sentiment is also from the Amazing You set, and it is mix and match so you can use just the amazing or all of the sentiment – I love the flexibility this provides!  The cat is of course just the punch from the Holiday Catalogue and I have perched her on a simple brick wall using the Brick TIEF.

Well that’s it for me, thank you so much for following along the last 2 years, and many thanks to the other team members for the fun we have had creating these blog hops each month!  Be sure to hop around the world and check out all of the other great projects to inspire your crafting.  You can start with the lovely Sam Hammond in the UK.
