Colour Challenge

Gee I've posted a lot of stuff this week, 3 posts on Tues was a record for me I'd say, and after a day of rest, I'm back with another card and a new challenge over at MAWTT challenge , this time set by Hazel. The current challenge is just for fun & the prize is a 2 week Guest Designer spot with us - so if you fancy it, here's the theme this week;

Colour Inspired Challenge

And here is the colour palette to work from;


So, I went for the paler shades in this one - cause that suited the papers I had, and here's what I made;


I know I didn't quite hit some of the colours on the palette above, but as I said, it's just for fun so hopefully I'll be let off with this!

For my card, I coloured an LOTV girlie image with Promarkers then combined her with Andrea Jayne Hot Diggity Dog papers and loads of die cuts!

Challenges;
Sketch n Stash 113 - Old LOTV stamp - but lotsa new dies (-thanks Debs)
Wags n Whiskers - Girl Birthday
Cupcake Craft - Lots of Layers
The Paper Nest Dolls - Pearls, Pearls, Pearls
Papercraft Star - Pastels
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

To see the rest of the DT's slightly more compliant cards, hop on over to the MAWTT blog page. Jx
