Colour Create 27 - Neon Green and Black


Hi everyone, a card today for Colour Create Challenge and a lovely combination chosen by Jo of Neon Green and Black with an option of leaves. Thanks Jo, I love these colours and enjoyed working with them. I have to own up to forgetting our option this time which is leaves but I'm hoping that the fleur de lis looks enough like leaves to get away with it :D. My DT friends have come up with some amazing projects with these colours, I just love them all and I hope you can join us this time.

My card is made using a nestability fleur de lis shapeabilities die and I've cut them in alternate pieces of black and green bazzil card then layered them up on mounting foam. The edges of the card blank are sponged with black distress ink and I've added some black half pearls and some green ones that I coloured with a copic marker. There's a little black wire and chiffon butterfly as the last layer which you might be able to see if you click on the picture, it hasn't come out too clearly. TFL and see you tomorrow with my DU card. Chris x

Hi Chris, gorgeous card - stunning - love what you've done with the colours especially love the green & black perals and the little butterfly finishes it perfectly.
Everywhere I go I'm seeing things I ordered that haven't arrived yet - the Fleur-de-lys pendant is one, Joe's Manga girls another, they'll all be out of date by the time they arrive in Germany (lol).
