Colour Create Challenge 18 - Rainbow Colours

Hi everyone, the new day of the week for Colour Create challenge  is now Thursday and here we are on Challenge 18, I can't believe how quick the weeks are going by. This week we have a great colour combo of Rainbow colours with an option of create a scene. Hope you can join us and when you pop over to the challenge you'll find some fantastic inspiration from my DT friends, I loved them all. Sadly Judy is leaving us this week, I'll miss you Judy and seeing your gorgeous cards on CC each week, I hope that you'll come back some time when you're able to but will see you in blogland. It's also a hello today to our new member Di who makes beautiful cards that I've admired since I found her blog, hope you enjoy yourself Di and it's great to have in the team with us.

I've made my little scene with stamps from a Penny Black Teddies clear stamps set. I used a big stamping block and placed the stamps around it then stamped them all at once. I did the colouring with markers and pencils, doodled in some grass and pink flowers and sponged the edges with black. The image is matted on bright green coredinations card which I've punched with a zig zag MS punch. There weren't going to be any flowers on this card originally, just the scene and a sentiment, I dropped the ink pad, so in the words of the band 10cc, "they hide a nasty stain that's lying there" :D TFL and see you tomorrow with my DU card.

Chris this is truly stunning! Your scene is wonderful and again your artistic talents are to die for!!! The tree stands out as being so 3d. I love the flower and aren't they great for hiding a multitude of sins!
Love it!!! I'm going to miss you at CC but don't worry I will still be stalking your blog! Life is very busy with 3 little boys and something had to give!!
Big hugs Judy xx
