Colour Create - Red, Cream and Chocolate
Hi everyone, another lovely day today. Unfortunately I didn't make it to the boot sale today, I decided to spend longer with my lovely Mum instead. It's on again tomorrow due to the Bank Holiday, so maybe we'll pop along then if the weather's still fine.
I just couldn't believe how many gorgeous cards were about for the Colour Create challenge this week, which has been set by Mina. I'm often inspired by the cards Mina creates, but judging by the challenge entries, it seems that everyone else has been too. I'm not sure whether it was the colour scheme (one of my favourites!) or something else but I certainly couldn't wait to get started on this one.
* Image - Sketching Stamper
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers & epoxy Sentiment - K & Co
* Border punch - Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace'
* Everything else - my stash
The image was a digital download I purchased from Sketching Stamper a few days ago. I couldn't resist this and another download (which you'll be seeing very soon!) If you haven't visited before, do take a look as Chris's digi-stamps are just fabulous, I'm getting quite a collection now!
Unfortunately, I haven't done this lovely image any favours with my colouring today it was one of those days where no matter what I did it ended up looking worse than before, so another day when you shouldn't look too closely, I'm afraid.
I've just been explaining to my dear (and long suffering) hubby, that the reason is probably that my pens are wearing out and I'm sure a small collection of Copics might put things right. He didn't seem to believe me for some strange reason!
Thank you for visiting and have a lovely evening.
