Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - Friday 22 February 2019

  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 and you MUST specify the colouring medium you have used.
 This week we are lucky to have our sponsor as the company "All Dressed Up".
For my very distressed/shabby chic style card I have used the All Dressed Up image called "Sightseeing in Paris".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers, distressed around the edge with a tearing ruler and inked with Tim Holtz's Tea Dye distress ink.

For the mounts of the card I have used a piece of kraft card and a pale salmon colour to match the cute girl's dress in the image.  The other papers were given by a crafty friend Vannessa and I tore around the edges of all the papers - which was certainly a hard task when I haven't got much strength/problems with my hands.  I then inked around the kraft and salmon pink card.  All the other papers I inked all over with the Tea Dye distress ink so they all matched.

To finished the card off I used an Eiffel Tower die and cut two out of kraft card and two out of the salmon pink card and inked around with the Tea Dye distress ink, used a flower stamp and cut out three flowers and added pearls to their centre, stamped a sentiment and added some seam binding across the card and in the form of a bow.

The Promarkers that I have used are: 

Face/skin - Saffron, Spice and Oatmeal 
Hair/dog - Satin, Pastel Beige, Khaki and Coral
Dress - Dusky Pink, Sunkissed Pink and Coral
Eiffel Tower - Putty, Pastel Beige, Satin and Khaki.
