Week 161 - Colour

For our colour challenge this month we have chosen real Spring colours
LIMettes always come up with such imaginative creations... we can't wait to see what appears!

Don't forget to keep it Clean and Simple and remember that white space!
This week's challenge does not necessarily have to be a one layer card, although we are always  happy to see them in any of our challenges.


I have a couple of cards for you today using the same ingredients, this is a fabulous stamp from Stampin Up called Blessed Easter and I have simply stamped it onto watercolour card and then coloured them in using Stampin Up Re-Inkers. I've stitched them using my trusty sewing machine.  I also made them in a couple of other colour ways and you can see these later in the week on my blog.

The use of this week's colours in this card is subtle to say the least! The delicate daisies were stamped and masked and a second stamping applied.
The colouring was done using Iced Spruce Distress Ink and a water brush with  a couple of Copics used for additional shading. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp. There is a little yellow in the centre of the daisies ... honest!

This one is a digi image from Fred She Said. It's coloured with Copics and the sentiment was computer generated using Pea Roxygirl font. The border was cut with a Fiskars border punch.
