This week at Colour Create we have a challenge that will get those brain cells working - again ! Well, we can't make it too easy for you now can we ?
This week the colour combo is orange, yellow and green and the extra option this week ? Something other than a card ! See, told you it would get you thinking ! The lovely Tara has been very, very kind though and thought up loads of projects for you and even listed them on the blog ! Now how kind is that ?
Just look at these gorgeous flowers to show off the colour combo ....
This is what I made this week.
We have been swapping deets on Colour Create and BasicGrey and now I have loads more Birthday cards to make ! I have a calendar in the kitchen with family and friends on but wanted something separate for my DT and blogging buddies and so this was just the challenge to get me finally making a buddy birthday calendar to hang next to my PC so hopefully I won't forget any of you.
The chipboard came from the girls I used to work with who save the backs of their telephone message pads for me !
The patterned papers are Making Memories "Chloe's Closet". These are so yummy ! and I distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink.
The pages of the calendar I cut from white card from The Papermillshop, drew the lines on it and then copied it 11 times on my printer ! I then used some Hero Arts dot alphabet stamps to put the months on there.
The image is Anya which my lovely friend Tara sent to me in the most amazing present I have ever received from someone I have never met ! I shall gather it all up (its still in the box she sent me all laid out how it came so I can keep looking at it !!!) and will take a photo and post it later.
Anya has been coloured with ProMarkers. Mustard and sandstone (hair), ivory and blush (skin), apricot and coral (top and bow), lime and canary (funky socks), cinnamon (basket), china blue (flowers), marsh green (leaves), cool grey 2 (outline). I also coloured the flowers with a clear Sakura pen to give them a sparkle.
The orange and green card are offcuts from Core'dinations which I found in my overflowing scraps box.
The ribbons are Anita's.
The charm and chain are from my stash.
The flowers are Hero Arts which I rubbed with some spiced marmalade distress ink.
The brads are Papermania pearl brads.
The leaves are some of Tara's famous leaves which she sent me (have you noticed how she has a leaf for every occasion ?! Go over to her blog and have a look and see !!!). You can find her hanging out here ! She sent me some green and white ones and so I used the white ones and coloured them with my marsh green PM.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with this week.
Hope you all have a good week and that the sun keeps on shining.
