COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE #24







Good morning everyone,
I haven't done too many challenges or too much blog stalking this week as we are on our last few days of holidays. There are still a few things we want to do...if it ever stops raining!! Actually yesterday was quite nice, but we will see what today will bring.

It's time for the Colour Create Challenge. The challenge is brought to you by Dena and she has chosen "Pink, Orange and Green". The optional extra is "Hearts".

Here is a little inspiration to help get your mojo going.



This fabulous image I am using today is "Popcorn the Bear". It was love at first sight with this little fella!!



I embossed the image with black onto water colour paper and painted it with Tombows. I used my white Inkssentials pen for the highlights. I also added lots of stickles. The corners are done with my basket weave punch. You can't see too much of my fab new raffia lace as these images are really large. I don't mind that the images are large, I just had to have them!! I bought the stamp and lace from "Bunny-Zoe's Store". The card measures 6.5 in.X 5.5in. I'm sure there will be a custom envelope made for this one. Other than the painting it was a quick card to put together.

I hope you will all have time to play along with us and remember it now runs for 2 weeks. The fab sponsor for this challenge is "Crafty Ribbons".
Be sure to pop on over to the Colour Create blog to see the gorgeous creations by the Design Team.

Have a great day.....Thanks so much for stopping by....
