Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - Friday 20 April 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.
  We are lucky to have "Polkadoodles" as our sponsor this week.
 For my card I have used the Polkadoodles image called "Ula be yourself".  I have coloured in my image with Promarkers.  I have then painted over the image with my Pebeo Drawing Gum Fluid to mask over the image.  I then scrawled various Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers onto my glass mat, spritzed with water and swirled the image through to get a watercolour effect background.  Once the background was dry I rubbed off the Pebeo Masking Fluid to reveal my image with now a lovely watercolour background.

The backing papers I have used are from some Debbi Moore Inspiration Magazines.

I have finished the card off with lace, ribbon, flowers and a sentiment that came with the image.

Promarkers used: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair - Chestnut, Henna and Walnut
Dress - Plum, Purple and Royal Blue.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
