Colour My World - Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am Denita, and I live in Australia. 
This month the Creation Station Design Team have a theme; 'Colour My World'. 
You may have hopped from Kerstin - 1 of our very brand new Design Team Members! 
Welcome to Kirsten, and welcome to you.

I gathered my colouring supplies - 
'Stampin' Blends Markers' and the 'Just Add Color Specialty DSP'.
We have an 8 year old in the house!
A nature boy who loves his stingrays, and wouldn't you know it?, Stampin' Up! have outdone themselves with a Manta Ray on the 'Just Add Color Specialty' DSP.
Everything is coloured with our 'Stampin' Blends Markers'.
The colours I have used: 'Bermuda Bay', 'Daffodil Delight', 'Old Olive', 'Pink Pirouette', 'Pool Party', 'Pumpkin Pie' & 'Smoky Slate'. I also used the 'Stampin' Blends Color Lifter' for all the highlights on the Manta Ray.
My tip: I use the lighter of the 2 shades first. Then I bring in the dark shade, and blend again with the light marker. When highlighting I use the 'Color Lifter'.
A 'Happy '8th' Birthday'. 
The number '8' - stamped onto 'Vellum' cardstock, and the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment come from 'Number of Years' stamp set.
The 'th' comes from the 'Happy Birthday Thinlits Die' - I found this idea from Holly Stene, who was inspired by Teneale Williams
Two awesome Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who both inspire me!
A very happy 8 year old.
This is how much we love Stingrays. These beautiful girls swim to our Harbour boat ramp waiting for the fishing boats to come in, and then they get all the fish scraps from the Fishermen. They are gentle & mesmerising to watch.
Every Sunday we visit the Harbour and there we learn about these beautiful creatures by an Ecologist from Into the Wild Nature Tours.

Sara Nell Langland is up NEXT with her gorgeous creation. Hop along and see all the inspiration from the Creation Station Design Team.
