Colour Challenge #29

WOW!!! are you amazed... I sure am!!!! Two weeks in a row and I've managed to sit myself down and make a card for the wonderful Kristina's Colour Challenge.
I of course had the 'Beautiful Ella' assisting me, she sat ever so patiently watching me while I made this card... well ok, she actually slept for most of it, but she did approve of the final result!!! hahaha.

Sooo... here is this weeks inspiration and colours:-

The colours were Pacific Point (we don't have this colour here yet, so I used Ballet Blue instead), Taken with Teal, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.
VERY BOLD colours and I must admit I was a little bit... well ok a BIG BIT scared of this one, but I was DETERMINED to get a card made. And here is what I came up with:-

Sooo, I've used Pumpkin Pie as my card base and then layered some Taken with Teal (well a colour similar to it!!!) and used my 'A Little Bit of Happiness (Level 1 Hostess ) stamp set.
I've coloured the image with Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Elegant Eggplant and Ballet Blue Pastels using my Blender pens. Then I added a tad of Pumpkin Pie Striped ribbon and popped both layers up on dimensionals, then I used my paper piercer to add a bit of dimension and a border around the image.
The words 'forever friends' is from the Level 1 Hostess Set 'So Many Sayings' and is stamped in Pumpkin Pie, then I added a little butterfly from the 'A Little Bit of Happiness' set too.

So there you have it.... 2 challenges in two weeks... something to celebrate...well for me at the moment anyway... hahaha.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- A Little Bit of Happiness (Level 1 Hostess), So Many Sayings (Level 1 Hostess)
Card:- Pumpkin Pie, Taken with Teal, Water Colour Paper
Ink:- Black, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories:- Blender Pens, Pastels, Pumpkin Pie Striped Ribbon, Dimensionals, Paper Piercer and Mat.
