Colour Create Challenge 3

Hi everyone, hope your Valentine Day was romantic and you're ready for Colour Create Challenge 3. This week the colours are red, white and blue with an option of Holidays and Travel. There's some fantastic inspiration from my team mates and I hope you can join in.


My image is the luscious Primrose by Sandra Dry for Kadoodle Stamps, mmm I think that bikini is my size! I've coloured her with markers and cut out with a Nestability oval, matted on a scalloped oval of Navy Bazzil card. The little beach scene is various distressed, torn and embossed pieces of Bazzil card and some Nestability cut scalloped ovals cut in half, sponged and glittered for the clouds. The sentiment is Penny Black and the gorgeous twill deck chair style ribbon was from a blog candy I won recently, I'll have to find out where it came from I think it's gorgeous. Added some stardust stickles and a gem to finish. I've realised I can enter this also for the Cupcake challenge by the skin of my teeth as the challenge this week is a scene card. TFL. Chris

I came to your blog because of this card. I thought it is great. Just last night I dreamed that I was walking down a busy road wearing my swimsuit and my behinds were hanging all out there for all to see. LOL I know, it should have been a nightmare not a dream!!! but in the dream I only got compliments as I strolled down the road...now please know I weigh 245 lbs. Only in a dream!! LOL
