Fab'n'Funky Challenges #124 - Go Green

Hi Everyone,

What a busy week!  I hope you've all enjoyed your celebrations, whether Jubilee related or not!  We had loads of great entries for our last challenge so check out the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog to see if you were one of our lucky winners.  Don't forget to pick up your badges too.

Now onto the challenge in hand.  We have the lovely Judit hosting this week and she has chosen a great theme...

Go Green

You can either use something recycled on your project or incorporate the colour green.  Our sponsor this week is Digi Darla Designs and the DT were lucky enough to have a play with some of her wonderful images.  Check out the link to see which digi's you'll be colouring next.

I have chosen to use the colour green and have made a shaped card this week.

I started with some heavy weight cardstock and cut two of the medium sized Grand Dahlias from Spellbinders.  I scored along the top of the backing shape and then glued together with sticky tape.  The papers came free with a scrapbooking magazine about a year ago.  I was having a tidy up and found them in the bottom of a drawer so thought it was about time to put them to good use.  The image was coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers in the following colours:

Forest Green
Leaf Green
Cool Grey 4
Blue Grey 1
Dusky Rose
Rose Pink
Cadet Blue
Glacier Blue

I used Spellbinders Labels Eight to cut out the image and sentiment which came from a selection of Forever Friends stamps.  The flowery ribbon was from Crafts U Love and I found it in the sale for only 99p!  Bargain!

DT Call

We are having a DT Call over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.  We are also looking for Guest DT members too.  All the information will be contained in the post for this week.  If you would like to be considered, just leave us a comment over on the F'n'F blog.  The calls will run until Sunday 17 June.  We look forward to welcoming some new members to our team.  Good luck!

Happy crafting,
