A Colour Challenge at FOR FUN this week

Good Morning all,

today sees us halfway through the week and hopefully ready for a crafty challenge to keep us all going until the weekend! I am at my caravan for a holiday with my beloved family, so let's hope everyone is enjoying the school Easter holiday in some glorious sunshine!

This week at FOR FUN we are offering you a COLOUR CHALLENGE.....we want to see AT LEAST 3 of the following colours on your creation:

PINK, PURPLE, GREEN, YELLOW, BLUE

We have a wonderful sponsor again this week. it's MELJEN'S DESIGNS, who are giving the winner 4 of their FAB images!
The full range of fab digi stamps are available to buy exclusively from Whimsy Stamps.




And so, onto my card....I have used one of the wonderful MelJen images, trio of cupcakes (which is available as a freebie) and the colours I chose are blue/purple, pink and green.


The BPs are all from a digi set called I Love Cupcakes from SCRAPBOOKINGMAD. They are matted and layered onto each other in different colour combos. I then did some faux stitching using my paper-piercing tool and a white gel marker pen around each panel. The image is coloured with Promarkers and cut with a nestie and I also inked the edges.


To complete I added a white grosgrain ribbon and threaded it through a freebie senti. I added some liquid pearls and stickles to highlight.


I am really disappointed with these photos, but try as I did, I wasn't able to get a true colour match, despite taking pics outside in good daylight, but I hope you get some idea of the fun, bright colours from these.

We would love to see you pop in over at the challenge blog to join us, and also to leave a comment for the DT who always work so hard on their wonderful creations......we all love to know what you think!

I would love to enter my card into the following challenges:
Thanks for looking!
