Colour Create Challenge 7 - Red and Green

Hi everyone and here we are with Colour Create Challenge 7 - red and green with an option of wings. Hope you can join in this week with these gorgeous colours and that you'll pop over and take a look at the amazing creations of my DT Friends, those girls are incredibly talented and really look forward to seeing what they make each week. I had the perfect floral and wings digital image from Sally-Ann at Grab-a-doodle-do which was lovely to colour with markers and a strong enough image to hold up against the checked downloaded paper from Raspberry Road. I added stickles to the flowers and leaves, a little Woodware sentiment then cut around the upper part of the image and did the same with the red card I matted on. The image panel is attached with dimension tape. For the card blank I had a pre-cut scalloped circle which I cut in half and then folded in half, I traced around this onto the Raspberry Road paper and hand cut. To finish the card I've added tiny red half pearls to all the scallops and some gorgeous red polka dot sheer ribbon. TFL and enjoy the rest of your weekend. Chris x

Hi

It's me again. I totally forgot to tell you this. I was at a craft fair this week and there was a demonstration of derwent pencils. They used one of your digi images for the demo! Hihi. I took a picture of it with my phone, but you can't see it very well, so I just tell you.

Hugs,
Larissa
