Colour Create - Challenge #3

Good morning and welcome to another exciting week at the Colour Create Challenge Blog ! If you thought last week was testing, read on !!

This week......

"We would like you to make your card or project this week using the colours red, white and blue. There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'Holidays and Travel' and I hope that the wonderful Design Team cards will give you the inspiration you need. Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!"

Here is my card....

I used some red Bazzill as my base card

The patterned papers are K&Company "Hopscotch".

The blue card is also K&Company "Hopscotch" but is the double sided designer mat pad for photos. I punched this with my SU spiral punch.

The image is by Elzybells and I have coloured it using ProMarkers, indigo blue, ruby and poppy (car), warm grey 5 and white gel pen (wheels), green (t-shirt), indigo blue (hat), ivory and blush (skin), warm grey 5 (seat), cool grey 1 (windscreen). I have also punched the image with my SU Spiral Punch and rubbed weathered wood and black soot distress inks onto the paper.

The banner was made by me and has been shaped using a pencil and stuck down at various points to give the effect of it moving like a flag - well, I do try !!!!

The ribbon and button are from my stash and so are the little red brads.

There is a real feeling of Summer and those much needed holidays on the blog which have been created by the very talented DT this week - you must go and have a look !

Have a great Sunday !
