Colour Q Challenge #78

I hope you have had a lovely weekend so far - I have! I have had sooooo much stamping time and finished quite a few projects, so I feel that I have accomplished a lot! I decided that I would have a go at entering a card in Colour Q's Challenge #78 and here are the colours to work with:

I have all the colours required except for Early Espresso, so I had to pick the next closest colour for me which was Chocolate Chip. I have had the cutest digi image - Daffodil Fun - that I have wanted to ink up that my fellow Colour Create Design Team Member Di has created. You can visit her online store here - you should check it out - she has some gorgeous images!

I used Chocolate Chip for my base and then a layer of white which I ran through my Cuttlebug with my Linen Impression Plate. I then added some Green Tea Leaves Designer Paper to the bottom half to break up all the white and tied some Pink Pirouhette ribbon along the join. My image was printed on white cardstock and then coloured with Copics (not my best colouring on the bear). Once I had finished, I also ran this layer through the Cuttlebug with my Linen Impression Plate. I found an old reliable stamp set in my collection - Short and Sweet and thought this sentiment suited this whimsical image, so I stamped this in Kraft ink. I finished off this panel by paper piercing along the bottom. This layer was then matted on Kraft cardstock with some punched Certainly Celery card along the bottom and popped up on dimensionals.

The sentiment on the inside was again stamped in Kraft ink on white card and a border added along the bottom with  my Green Tea Leaves paper and Certainly Celery punched card.

Off to go and collect my kids - my sister in law has taken them out to the museum and science centre for the day, so I had better rescue her as they were so excited and I am sure she will be worn out!!
