I can't believe it's Wednesday again already! But Wednesday means a brand new challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges. So if you haven't already, check out our winners post for the last challenge as it's on the blog right now.
So, I know you're all wondering what we would like you to create this week. Our host is the wonderful Ginny and she has chosen a great theme...
Your Favourite Colour Combo
Yip, it's that simple. Just chose your favourite colour combo and get crafting! We also have the brilliant Flonzcraft as our sponsor. They are a stamp manufacturing compnay from New Zealand. Be sure to check out their stamps here.
I had a little dilemma chosing my colour combo but this is what I first thought of when I saw the challenge theme so I knew it had to be the one - pink, black and silver.
I recently treated myself to a set of the Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Squares which I bought from America because it was cheaper then buying from the UK! Anyway, I used these to make my card blank and then scored the back panel to allow the card to stand.
My background actually came from waste! I spritzed all over the circles masks from That Special Touch to make a background for another card and then used the leftover ink that was still on the mask to make a second background and this what I've used here. I really liked the way it turned out - not quite perfect but still enough to show the shimmer of the Mister Huey spray. I used my Tim Holtz Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on my Slodge mat to add colour to the spritzy background once it had dried. I wanted a graduated look so really went for it at the bottom of the card, fading nearer the top.
Using Spellbinders Grand Decorative Circles I cut a base shape from black card and then added a doily which I had covered with silver metallic ink. I stamped my Flonzcraft Crystal Frame stamp in black on white card and then used my DI to colour match the background. I added a silver-mirri butterfly from the Spellbinders Jewel Flourishes set. Finally I finished off with some gems for the corners. I'm still in gem-mania mode!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp and Show - What Are You Known For (pink and butterflies)
Top Tip Tuesday #94 - Lavishly Luscious Layers
Creative Card Crew #28 - Girly
Created With Love Challenges #25 - Anything Goes
I hope you can join us for our great colour combo challenge this week.
