Base is a 6 x 6 inch white card, mats of sqare dark blue, turquous and sea-green card layered on top. followed by random circles. On top of this I added the image.
The colouring of the image was an accident! I tried to colour and image, not realising that a duplicate image was below – and I ended up liking the subtle colours of the image below and the random nature of the colouring on this image. So as often happens out of an accident becomes beautiful art pieces. The colouring was done with Distress Oxide inks.
Are you joining us for this challenge? As usual the theme is “Anything Goes”.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Bugaboo Stamps make such fun and quirky stamps – I love the fun and life in them – and the sentiments always make me laugh!
So this card is a real summer stunner. Ladybirds had to feature high on this card – I love them but sadly we don’t see as many nowadays as we used to when I was a littel girl. For those of you who follow this page it probably comes as no surprise that I had to do some decoupage with this one too.
I printed the image several times. Made an extra frame with the ladybird. Cut out several layers to decoupage up after they had been coloured using my Copic Ciao’s. When done I layered it all up on a 6 x 6 quite card.
For this image I was a bit torn about what to do, I printed out small and big images and also made a background of the stamp. In the end I decided it was such a beautiful image on it’s own in it’s simplicity that it didn’t need a fanfare around it.
So with that in mind I printed the image – BIG – and coloured it with my Zig watercolour pens. I used a bit of brown card for some matting and finished up adding a simple Happy Birthday sentiment cut in brown with a yellow shadow. Everything was added to a big 8 x 8 inch white card – voila!
This week’s card is made with Art Palette from QKR Stampede.
When you are a crafter – I think we are all drawn to a pain palette. Part of me wanted to go with a tone on tone colour scheme for the palette, but in the end I decided to go all out and add lots of colour – just as you often see the palette. It is such a great and versatile design – and can be used for any occasion. It works great as a background to another image – or indeed as the main design with a burst of colour behind it. I may add some other images to this page later…..
I am absolutely obsessed with wreaths at the moment – well it’s been a while – just love what you can do with them. So when choosing an image for this weeks card it had to be the Shamrock Circle. It is such a beautiful and versatile wreath/circle and you can add anything at all to it.
Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps is our sponsor this week and they are generously offering 2 digital stamps from their store to the challenge winner.
This week’s card was made by colouring the digital stamp with Copic Ciao pens. The card is a 6 x 6 white card where the front was folded back on itself. A green panel is cut to size and folded at the bottom.
Lime background papers where matted onto green card and added to the white card. A few floral flours and a Happy New Year sentiment were added to finish off the card.
