Colour Create Challenge #80

Today its Colour Create challenge time and Sharon has come up with a fab colour scheme - Lime Green, Aqua and White (with the optional extra challenge of adding a butterfly).

22 Sept - Challenge 80 - Sharon L Lime Aqua & White

As soon as I saw this colour combo, I knew what stamp set I wanted to use - Hanging Out by Papertrey Ink. OMG - this is my favourite stamp set at the moment! I had so much fun stamping and cutting out my little clothes (but I do  need to get the matching dies to save all that time fussy cutting!!) I see endless possibilities with this stamp set! Anyway, here is my take on the colours:

I used Tempting Turquoise as my base and then added a layer of white cardstock for  my mat. I stamped my grass along the bottom in Certainly Celery ink. I then used my small cloud die and sponged some Cyan pigment ink to create my sky. The technique for this I found here.  I definately need some practice at this but boy it was heaps of fun! The washing line was then stamped in Tuxedo Black ink as well as my sentiment. I stamped my three pieces of clothing in Tuxedo Black ink and coloured my overalls with B00/B02 Copics, adding some polka dots with my white gel pen. I stamped over the other two pieces with the solid t shirt and bib using Certainly Celery ink. Finally I lined the clouds with my Atyou Spica clear glitter pen. It was hard to get an effective photo of this, but this gives you an idea:

On the inside, I repeated the background and then stamped the sock and bib image, coloured these and fussy cut them before adhering on top of the grass. My sentiment is another from the Hanging Out set. Finally I added more glitter to the clouds with my clear Atyou spica glitter pen. After photographing and uploading my card, I realised that I forgot to add my buttefly for the challenge! Oops!
