Here is the card I finished today: it's for the Make It Colourful challenge which this week is to colour in bright colours. I thought this Balloon Chair digi image from Make It Crafty would be perfect, partly because I'd not seen it used yet so I could work out the colouring myself, and secondly because I love colouring balloons! This image is from the new Carnival range of stamps, so I tried to get a carnival/fair/circus theme going with stripes, bright colours and bunting. I imagined a little corner of a field at some carnival with a chair like a throne, all plush, gold-trimmed fabric, polished wood and beading, where you could pay your money and sit in a magic wishing chair, so this is what I tried to colour. That's the thing with these MiC images, they really fire your imagination. And as this little Tilda is holding a balloon I thought I'd use her again. I was going to have a sitting Tilda on the chair, but after spending so long colouring it I didn't want to cover it up!
It's another box card because I enjoyed making the last one that much, but I elongated it to accommodate the longer image. The wording at the top was made in Word, printed out and coloured (hastily and badly onto non-Copic paper I'm afraid) to look a little like carnival and circus posters. The bunting is attached to a thin gold rope as this looks a bit like the gold trim on the chair. A golden corner die-cut finishes it off.
