Thank you so much to the girls of the Sunny Challenges. I made the Ray Of Sunshine award this week with this card. It's grown on me somewhat and I quite like the non traditional colours for Christmas. It would be so wonderful if there were a few more entries. It's a fabulous challenge..once a week.
The Sunny Challenge this week is a sketch and flowers, flowers, flowers. So this is my card for this challenge. You know how you start a card with an idea then it takes a completely different direction...well this is what happened here. The end result is totally different from what I envisaged..BUT I love it!!! lol
The colour combination came from the Colour Coach which is such an invaluable tool. I used Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Daffodil Delight and for a highlight..Pool Party. This is the first time I had used my Field Flowers set and a very, very long time since I had done two step stamping but it all came together so well. I did have to stamp my image panel twice because, silly me, stamped the little flowers upside down!!! The centres of the flowers have been coloured with a Daffodil Delight marker. I think the rest is self explanatory.
In amongst making cards, I'm stitching and making a Block of the Month quilt. I'm also trying to practice my colouring techniques with my copics. My new toy arrived on Friday...an air compressor! I love it but I do need to practice with it as well. lol
My Chiropractor visits continue, once a week now and I'm feeling so much better. Thank goodness. Now at least I can keep up with my father when we both go walking. While I wasn't well, I was dragging the chain a bit, it looked a bit like Brown's cows with me in the rear. rofl
Thanks for visiting my blog and hope you enjoy the rest of the afternoon.
