Catch the Bug #3

I’ve just got time to post this before heading off to school (last day tomorrow – yeah!) The theme for day three is a colour palette. I am hoping that I have seen the right colours because computer screens all show colours slightly differently. I decided to go with turquoise and lime green.

Materials used:SAM_1800(watermarked)
Bugaboo stamp – Fairy Christmas
Spellbinders Heirloom Ornament clear stamp set: sentiment and holly sprig
white A5 card blank
green card
blue card
Copic pens
Poychromo pencils
Gold metallic promarker
Red liquid pearls
Black archival ink pad
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
Glamour Dust

I printed out my image and coloured it with Copics before trimming to size. I then matted and layered it onto the green and blue card before attaching to the card blank. I stamped my sentiment and the holly sprigs at the bottom of the card and coloured it in with the pencils. Finally I added some Glamour Dust to her hat and liquid pearls for the holly berries.

I am enjoying the challenge of getting a whole week of cards done, it’s a pity work is getting in the way. Next week would have been much better for me because I shall be on holiday. Also I tend to make religious Christmas cards so the images I have used so far are very different from my usual ones.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Great card Pippa, I love the image! I was surprised to see how well the lime green and turquoise worked together… not really a colour combo I imagine, but they look fabulous. I love the simple sentiment you used and the lovely holly sprays either side. Well done!
