Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - Friday 23 February 2018

 Good morning.  

It is time for another challenge over at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog.

The topic this week is "anything goes".

PLEASE NOTE:  We are a colouring challenge and therefore to take part in the challenge you MUST have coloured something on your card/creation.

This week our sponsor is "Lemon Shortbread".
 For my card I have used the Lemon Shortbread image called "Beanie Girl".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and distressed around the edges with my Tim Holtz disressing tool and added some brown chalk ink pad to all the edges.

The backing papers are a magazine freebie designed by Sara Davies from Crafter's Companion.  They are shabby chic papers so that is why I went for a shabby chic card.  I have mixed some of the backing papers with Crafter's Companion kraft card and distressed all the edges of the paper and card with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and added brown chalk ink pad to the edges.  It's quite time-consuming distressing all the edges but it gives it a wonderful effect.

I have finished the card off with a scrap of ribbon underneath the lace, die-cut sentiment, die-cut banner, greenery, leaves and flower and a brad.

Promarkers used:  

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Burnt Sienna, Chestnut and Henna 
Dress/boots/hat - Salmon Pink, Antique Pink, Cocoa and Burnt Sienna.
