Path of Positivity Midway Reminder

We are half way through Challenge #60 at the Path of Positivity with the optional theme of neutrals. For my card this time I chose an image from Mari’s Digis, one of our challenge sponsor, which work so well with a neutral palette.

The story of the Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Anderson, is such a bitter sweet story so using bright colours would not have been fitting. If you do not know the story then you can find a telling of it here:


Materials used:
Mari’s Digis – The Little Match Girl
X-Press It card
brown and black card
7×5″ card blank
brown bow
blending tool and felt pad
Copic pens:
skin – E000, E00, E21, E11, E04  R20
hair – E42, E43, E47, E49
dress – E81, E84, E87, E89
wall – E31, E33, E35, E37, E39
step and wall base – E30, E31, E33, E35
sky and snow shadows – C0, C1, C3, C5
lamp and match glow – Y21, Y35, Y11
lampost – C5, C7, C9
matchbox – E50, E51, E53, E34, E08
eyes – YR12,E15, E37

card base – various inks refils – E39, E35 and blending solution

I think I used almost every pen I have in the E range! The base of the card is coloured using Copic ink from refil bottles dabbed on with a blending tool and felt pad. The brown bow came from a box of chocolates, quite by chance it has the same texture as the bown card of the mat.

I hope you will join us on the next stage of our year of colour at Path of Positivity. As always we have two wonderful sponsors offering great prizes. If you follow the optional theme make sure that over half of your colour scheme is neutral colours. Entries that follow the theme have the opportunity to win the Most Inspirational Creation prize, just remember to add FT after your name.

We’d also love to find out how this month’s colour grouping makes you feel, if you’d like to share that with us. What kinds of feelings do neutral colours evoke in you? You can write a sentence or two in the body of your post, write a sentence at the bottom of your post next to the link up for this challenge, or simply leave a comment on this post if you’d like.

Remember, in order to be considered eligible for this month’s prizes, ALL creations must be positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. You don’t need to follow the optional theme if you simply want to have a chance at the Random Draw prize of a $12 gift certificate from A Day for Daisies, one of our guest sponsors this month. You only need to follow the theme if you want a chance to win an additional sponsored prize of the same three digis used by team members, provided by Mari Digis, the second of our guest sponsors this month, for the project chosen as Most Inspiring.

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.
