Colour Create - Challenge #4

This week on the Colour Create Challenge Blog.....

Well, this cutie little piccie says it all really. The colours for this week are pink and grey and the extra option is "cute and cuddly". There, quite an easy one for you this week !

This is my little cuddly buddly for this week.....

I took inspiration for this card from the fantastic sketch by Katharina

I printed directly onto some white card a flowers and hearts patterned paper from Pink Petticoat.

The grey and pink card is from a Papermania 6x6 card stack. I punched the grey card with my MS small valentine hearts punch.

The patterned papers are DCWV Nana's Nursery for Girls which are gorgeous and there are some yummy papers in there too which you don't have to use for baby/children's cards.

The image is Sugar Nellie "Dexter the Bear". Umm, perhaps he shouldn't be grey ? Oh well, Ski has a green rabbit which is her favourite snuggly and have you ever seen a green rabbit ?!!

Dexter has been coloured with Promarkers. Now when I started my journey into ProMarker World I told my DH that I wouldn't possibly need all those grey pens, why on earth would you want all those grey pens ? Well let me tell you, I am still working my way through eating that hat as we speak because you do NEED all those grey pens and this image proves it !!! I have used warm grey 2, 3 and 4 for Dexter (could have used more if I was expert at colouring like some of you are ;o) ), blender pen (all over), blossom and rose pink (jumper), cool grey 2 (outline).

The pink flowers are from my stash and the grey flowers started out as cream Prima flowers (I bought a humongous bag from simonsaysstamp which are all different shapes and sizes) and I coloured them with warm grey 2.

The brads and spacers are from my stash and the heart charm was a lovely gift from my good friend Kim

The ribbons are from my stash.

You must go over to the blog and have a look at the fantastic creations by the rest of the DT.

I would also like to give a warm welcome to our guest designer this week who is Bev and also to Mina who has joined us as a permanent member of the team.

Looking forward to seeing your fantastic creations. Have a great Sunday and thank you so much for taking the time and looking - I appreciate each and every one of your comments.
