We have a colour challenge at Craft Your Passion this week :
So we want to see shades of green and purple on your cards/projects.We have the fab Some Odd Girl as our sponsor too!Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!
For my card I’ve used the adorable Patches ‘n Braids,a Belle’s ‘n Whistles stamp by the talented Elisabeth Bell.I got her on Sale at Bunny Zoe’s Crafts. She’s been coloured with a mix of Copic Sketch and Ciao Markers.I’ve created a halo of blue around the image to give the impression of sky and softened the line where I finished colouring the grass with Distress Inks.I’m not confident on colouring skies and after I’ve spent the time getting the image more or less how I like it I don’t wanna mess the whole thing up!I chose this selection of pretty papers only to find I have run very short on purple card!Eeek!What do I do!So after panicking like crazy it finally hit me – Distress Ink!I’d found some very pale lilac card colour tinted it with 2 purple shades.I really like the effect as it was textured card I used. Although I had green card to match I took some very pale green card and inked that as well to give consistency.I got to play with my new banner die too 😀 I even made my own two tone twine (try saying that 3 times fast!) to thread through them but boy that was a fiddle.Often I struggle to make detailed/layered cards without covering everything up so I’m quite pleased ho this turned out. I know a lot of people associate pastel colours with Spring but I just think these lush greens and purples sum it up for me.The fresh grass growing,the buds on the trees sprouting and my favourite blue and purple pansies bursting into bloom!Supplies : Image : Patches ‘n Braids by Belles ‘n Whistles Colouring mediums : Copic Sketch and Ciao Markers,Impress Jet Black Dye Ink Pad,Tumbled Glass,Shabby Shutters,Milled Lavender,Dusty Concord Distress Inks Papers & card : DP mix of discontinued Paper Adventures,pale lilac and green Bazzill Basics Tools : X-cut guillotine,Martha Stewart Embroidered Floral Edger Punch ,Classic Scallop and Standard Ovals Large Nestabilities,Flowers cut from Marianne Designs Rectangle Frame Set,Flourish and flower centre cut from Marianne Designs Circle Frame Set,Whimsy Banner Pennants Dies,Big Shot,Cut ‘n Dry foam To embellish : We R Memory Keepers Floss in Green and Purple
