Thinking of You - Colour Me...! Guest Designer!

Hi there

I'm absolutely loving my guest designer role at Colour Me...! this month and today I'm back to share the latest challenge.  Thank you to everyone that entered last week's challenge using our striking colour combo, we had some really eye-catching entries.

This week we have some subtle earthy colours for you.  We'd like to see your creations using this colour palette...

Here is my card using these earthy tones...

I started by using some embossing paste and used part of a stencil to spread the paste onto my card base and then left well alone to dry.  I cut the leaf die from a scrap of cardstock and adhered this overlapping the embossed area.  Next I stamped the butterfly onto a small piece of white card using brown ink and die cut using the co-ordinating die.  I coloured in the image using a FlexMarker and then coated the butterfly with some clear Wink of Stella to add some subtle shimmer.  The butterfly was then popped up on 3D foam.  I stamped the sentiment in brown ink and added some Doodlebug sprinkles to finish.

Materials used:

  • Stencil: MFT MIX-ables - Concentric Circles
  • Embossing Paste: Dreamweaver
  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Elegant Butterflies and Many Messages
  • Ink: Memento - Rich Cocoa
  • Dies: Clearly Besotted - Elegant Butterflies and Leafy Accents
  • Doodlebug Sprinkles - Bon Bon Assortment
  • Wink of Stella and FlexMarker - Saddle Brown

I would like to link this card up at the following challenges:

Dream Valley - Challenge #95 - Anything Goes
