This week the colour combo is RED and GREEN and the extra option we would like you to add wings, but please remember that this is not compulsory. You could use animals and insects that have wings, but many of our well-loved characters also have little wings tucked away (Tilda springs to mind here)!
Automatically Christmas springs to mind with this colour combo but if you check out the DT's creations this week, you will see that that isn't necessarily the case !
This is the card I made for this week's challenge...
I took inspiration from the fantastic sketch that was on last week's Sketch Saturday.
The base card is white Bazzill.
The patterned papers are Cosmo Cricket "Honey Pie" which were absolutely perfect for this challenge because they are designed to go together (there is a very thin strip of the green in the red paper).
I stamped around the green paper with a Studio G border stamp.
The image is from the new Leanne Ellis set of stamps and this one is called "Cup of Tea". She has been coloured with ProMarkers. Burnt sienna and cocoa (hair), ivory and blush (skin), ruby and poppy (all the red you can see !), grass (leaves), satin and sandstone (top and cup), grass and meadow (teapot), cocoa (tea).
The flowers have been punched with an EK Success retro flower punch and daisy punch. The dew drop in the middle is by Robins Nest and I bought a little bottle of these from simonsaysstamp.
The sentiment is Hero Arts.
I'm looking forward to visiting your blogs to see what you have come up with !
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday and that the week goes well for you. Me ? Well I am off to lie on the sofa with a big glass of water and couple of paracetamol after having a fantastic meal at a friend's house last night which consisted of around 8 courses and far too much wine ! Why is it you never think of the thumping headache, churning stomach and mouth like a badger's bum when you politely say "oh yes please, fill it up" ?!!! Still, its a very rare occasion for me so I think I can be let off !
Hopefully I can prise myself off the sofa later to tell you all about the new challenge for Kaboodle Doodles this week.
Keep smilin !!
