Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - Friday 27 July 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 we are lucky to be sponsored by Polkadoodles
 For my seaside themed birthday card I have used the Polkadoodles image "Meribelle Friends" as I couldn't resist this little mermaid and her dolphin friends.  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers.  I coloured the background with my Duck Egg Promarker and then used various stamps to add texture for the water, added some white doodling and finally some glittery sequins.

All the backing papers are from my stash along with kraft card, all of which I have distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool along with the image and then edged with a brown chalk ink pad.

I have finished the card off some blue netting, die-cut seahorses/anchor from a friend, added googly eyes to the seahorses and the dolphins, added a little starfish and a die-cut sentiment.

The Promarkers that I have used are: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair/mermaid body - Lemon, Yellow, Canary, Leaf Green and Apple
Flowers - Purple, Amethyst, Bright Green and Forest Green
Background - Swirls of blending tool around the image to make a patchy effect followed by Duck Egg.
