Good morning all, and please forgive me for not being around much in the last couple of weeks - a mixture of eyestrain and still more need for rest has kept me off the computer, although I have tried to still visit blogs but on a less frequent basis. I've also been busy making more cards than I usually would make - 2 this week so far! lol.
Anyway, being Saturday, there is a new challenge at Make It Colourful today, and you'll like this one.....COLOUR IN PINK. That's it, just use pink as one of the colours in your image. We'd like to see you feature pink though rather than just have a tiny bit somewhere in your colouring.
Our sponsor is Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Nicki is offering a £10 gift voucher to her store as a prize this week
This is my card: the fairy image was a freebie from Digital Two For Tuesday, and I used it to make a scene using 2 Make It Crafty digi images: the Whimsical Mushroom, and the Tulip Garden which is a brand new release (links to the stamps are in the card recipe below). There's a whole bunch of new garden images available if you just want to add a simple background to your image, and I used this image twice behind the mushrooms and fairy. Colouring is in Copics as per usual and I took pinks from different colour families for my image today: my favourite copic pinks are actually in the Red family - R81, R83, R85 & R89 - and these are what I used on the dress. The wings are coloured mainly with the Red Violets RV000, RV02, RV10 with a little R83, and lastly I used some pinky Violets - V91 & V95 - on the mushroom to give it a slight pink tone. I also used my markers to colour up a couple of lasercut chipboards (also from Make It Crafty). I kept the layout very simple as it was a quick-ish card, and also to let the image stand out more. Hope you like it. And do drop by my fellow teamies blogs, I can tell you their designs are really beautiful.
It's been so long since my last blog post that I had to think how to do all the links and add the photos! It won't be so long till my next post....I'll be back tomorrow with another card and a bit of exciting news.
