Combined Challenge .....

A card at last, I haven't made very much this week so this one is for the following challenges,

Whiff of Joy Challenge 45 is "bling", this week's sponsor is Simon says Stamp, $10 voucher and WOJ blossom fairy Charlotte

The Secret Crafter Challenge 46 this week its colours, "brown & turquoise"

Allsorts Challenge 15 is a sketch and torn edges set by Jule's, there are some fab goodies for the lucky winner

ABC Challenge this week is C for Circles, sponsored by WOJ, this weeks guest designer is Rach

I have coloured the very pretty Willow with Hot Chocolate stamp from Whiff of Joy stamps with promarkers, using the brown & turquiose colours from the Secret Crafter Challenge. I used my nesties for the circles for the ABC challenge ( I changed the rectangle from the sketch to a circle as I thought it suited my stamped image better). I did cheat a little with my torn edges and used my fiskars fancy edged ruler, I just can't help being neat!! I used lots of small gems for my "bling" for the Whiff of Joy challenge. Papers are BG Pheobe & Archaic.

Going to try and get another card made ready for tomorrow, I coloured a few images last night so they are ready to put together, I just need to find the papers to match, I usually colour my images then choose papers, It works for me most of the time!!

Thanks for stopping by,

Angela xx

Hi Angela

What a gorgeous card. Love the colour combo and that beautifully coloured image.

I too always colour my image first - but not always a good move as I can then sometimes spend ages trying to find the right papers etc to go alongside.

Thank you for joining in the Allsorts Challenge this week.

Love Jules xx

Love the colours you've used. I always think this Willow looks at her best in shades of brown - Love it!

I have a file stuffed with pre-coloured images - I don't go anywhere without my paints and some images! - and then spend forever trying to find papers to match! I usually end up having to paint another in different colours then!!
