Colour Ava

Wow can you believe that we are in September and Spring has sprung here in Sydney.  We have a had a lovely day about 22 degrees with some lovely warm sunshine.  A beautiful day.


How has your day and your weekend been going?  Well I hope.


I must share some exciting news with you.  I have been asked and accepted the offer to stay on as a permanent member of the Come and Get It Design Team. 


So I will continue to share with you my creations for the challenges and hope to continue to see you visit us there.


The challenge this week that we hope to inspire you with is a colour challenge and the challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps.


The colours are pink, green and light blue.  I have used Pool Party, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink for my colours choice.  I have also used neutral cardstock Crumb Cake and Whisper White.


The Bugaboo image that I have used is called Ava Mermaid and I have layered parts of the image to give a sort of 3D effect.  This is my first time at doing this and I think it worked out well.


I have coloured Ava in using an Aqua Brush.  Her hair is coloured in using Soft Suede ink, the bubbles Pool Party, the Fish Pretty in Pink.  The top is Certainly Celery and then I coloured her tail in with Certainly Celery but also blended some Pool Party ink on the end.


The first layer was cut out using the new Window Frames Die and I sponged the whole layer lightly with Pool Party ink before I started to layer parts of the image. I have also sponged a little more Pool Party ink to the edges of the frame.


The Crumb Cake cardstock has been stamped with the En Francais background stamp in Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped about 3/4 of the cardstock. 


I added some Pretty in Pink satin ribbon (retired) at about half way on the Crumb Cake cardstock and then added some lace at one end. 


A border layer was created under the Crumb Cake cardstock using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and Pool Party cardstock.


A few embellishments were added including a bow in Pretty in Pink, some Swirls and of course my all time favourite ‘bling’.  If you know me you know most of projects have ‘bling’.  This time I have added a Rhinestone to the flower and two of the swirls end.


Here is my card…
