Hi everyone, hope you're all well, I haven't quite melted yet but I'm close, hope you're all surviving! Time for another Colour Create challenge and this week the colours are Grass Green, Apple Green, Sunflower Yellow, Lemon and White with the option of decorating your card inside and out plus the envelope. I hope you can join us this week for this lovely summery combination and when you visit the blog you'll see some fabulous cards from all my DT friends, they're all so beautiful. You'll also see when you visit there are going to be some changes but I'll leave you to read about that yourselves when you pop over.
I've used some absolutely adorable little Elzybells bears and this set comes with the bears, the present and sentiments too. I've coloured with markers and pencils and the unopened present has been cut out and mounted on dimension tape. The colourful backgrounds (hope you've got your shades on) were created with distress inks sponged onto white card, spritzed with water from a mister and then dried with a heat gun which gives the mottled effect. All the edges have been sponged with walnut stain ink. There's a bit of light sponging with all the colours around the bear with the balloons and around the sentiment on the front of the card too. I added a thin ribbon, some stickles and stamped the envelope with the present stamp in the ink colours used for the background.
I just wanted to mention that I still haven't been able to resolve the problems I've been having with blogger but thank you to everyone for their suggestions when I asked a question about it a few posts back. My problem isn't Internet Explorer as I don't use it but I've now had to take away my followers box as someone suggested that this might be a cause. Apologies for this, I really didn't want to do it but I've been having so much hassle when I try to add anything to my sidebar and this is the answer for that. It's also been mentioned that my blog doesn't load properly for some people and I still can't moderate my comments individually, I've still to track down why that's happening. TFL. Chris x
