Colour Create Challenge #25









Good morning everyone;
It's time again for another Colour Create Challenge.
The colours this week are Blue, Black, Sand and Silver, with an extra option of Summertime.


For a little inspiration here is a pic for you. The fabulous prize this week is sponsored by "Handy Hippo". There are 5 vouchers to give away!!

The image I used today is by Penny Black and the stamp set is called "Teddy & Company".



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used a Gelly Roll metallic silver pen for the accents on his shirt and the centers of the flowers.I used my Inkssentials white pen for the dots, doodles and highlights. I also used some silver stickles on the tall grasses. I used my mega nesties curved rectangles for all the card layers. The image layer, the sand layer and the blue card are the die sizes and to achieve the thin layers I glued them to the pieces of DP and cut them by eye. That's why, if you look close they are not perfect and may be a little crooked....lol!!The flowers are Prima's. I also stamped some extra butterflies, cut and layered them.

Be sure to stop by the "Colour Create Blog" to see the fabulous creations by the DT, and give a warm welcome to our newest member Deanne, who by the way makes the most beautiful creations, very rarely using stamps!!

I hope you will have a chance to play along with us, you have to weeks to "getter done"!!

Have a wonderful day,
Thanks so much for stopping by....

Fabulous Karen. Love the papers.....fantastic colouring of that adorable image and your details are gorgeous.
Your cutting 'by eye' looks amazingly neat to me. I always put the die on the card and draw round the outer edge so I have a line to work with, but it's rarely as neat as yours.
