Travelling Colours

Hi everyone,

Well, it could be the hottest day today and guess who is going to be standing (or sitting) around all afternoon at a Garden Party ~ I had better dig out the sunscreen!

My share for today is a card I have made for the Copic Marker Europe competition to celebrate their 1st  birthday online.  The image is one I had to apply for and the condition of getting it (and another one) free was that you enter the competition ~ the closing date for submissions is today, so I've only just done it in time!

The image is Krista Smith of Saturated Canary and called 'Travelling Colours' ~ isn't it gorgeous ~ I absolutely adore Saturated Canary images and this one is so cute.  She is coloured with Copic markers and I have distressed the image with Tim Holtz "Tumbled Glass' distress ink as the white card was too stark against the coloured background.  For the card base I have used one of my cut down hammered white card blanks and added a mat in purple card, the background papers are from the First Edition 'Dreamcatcher' paper pad and are adorable, both the image and the small contrasting piece of paper are mounted onto the same purple card.  The flourish is cut from purple pearlescent card using a Magnolia Doohickey die called 'Leaf & Swirl' and the flowers are paper flowers from my stash (sorry no name or branding on the packaging) fastened to the card base with Doodlebug sugar coated brads in lilac.  To finish I have punched three Butterflies from the same pearlescent card with a Martha Stewart 3 in 1 Butterfly punch and added lilac rhinestones.

I thoroughly enjoyed colouring this image in and hope you all like it.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great day.
