COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE #29









Good morning everyone;

It's time again for the Colour Create Challenge...can you believe 2 weeks have passed already!! The colours this week are awesome...brought to us by the lovely Janiel and they are "Red, Yellow, Black and White" and the extra option is "Checkers and Flowers.

Here is a little inspiration to get you started.....



The sponsor this week is "Sketching Stamper Digi Shop"

I have been itching to play around with my Popcorn Bear stamps and thought this would be a great time to colour one up. The only problem was Popcorn is usually brown...well guess what...today he is a black bear...lol!! I was doing lots of humming and hawing as I was colouring him, but when I was finished I thought he turned out rather cute. What do you think??



I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I used my white Inkssentials pen for the highlights. I cut a frame from cardboard and covered it with the checkered paper. The corner embellies are stickers and I coloured them with my black Identa-pen. I cut out and layered the little duck to the frame. The borders are punched with my MS and EK Success punches and I added some black flat backed pearls. The sentiment is stamped with Stazon onto white shrink film, cut with my fancy scissors and shrunk. I made the bow with my fab Bow Easy.
I hope you like it.

I hope you will all have a chance to play along with us.....
Have a fabulous day...and Thanks for stopping by.
