Fab'n'Funky Challenges #163 - Colour Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Well, isn't the time just whizzing by.  I can't believe we are back on Wednesday again!  As you know Wednesday means a great new challenge at Fab'n'Funky Challenges and this week is no different.  But first we have to say a big thank you to each and every one of you who entered our last challenge - we saw so many wonderful sentiments.  The winners and Top 3 have been announced over at Fab'n'Funky Challenges so head on over for a look.

Have you seen our exciting DT Call?  If not, all the details can be found at Fab'n'Funky Challenges.  You don't need to have previous DT experience - just a love of craft! 

Now, we had better announce the next challenge and it's a corker!  Pat is our host and you should definitely pop by her blog for some inspiration.  She also has a lovely brood of gorgeous grand-daughters! 

Pink, Green and Brown

Our sponsor this week is MayzyArt

She is becoming a firm fave of mine and the DT were so lucky to be able to work with her images this week.  I chose Frog Princess and here is my card...

I started by colouring my image with ProMarkers in Peony, Fuchsia Pink, Cerise, Marsh Green, Pear Green, Lime Green, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Blush, Satin, Gold and Blender.  When I finished, I scanned it using my Brother printer and then took it into Serif's Craft Artist 2 Professional.  I had only intended to make some matching papers but this card just came together almost by itself!  I used the current sketch on Sketch Saturday blog which looks like this...

Great sketch and I love all the ideas they have over at Sketch Saturday.  My papers are from different kits so I haven't got a note of them.  The ribbon came from the Afternoon Tea kit.  I tried the 3D decoupage tool for the first time on this card.  It was really easy and I love the result.  Here is a shot of the inside of my card...

This was a super quick card to put together but I like that I've been able to use my coloured image in a different way.  I really hope you can join us for our Pink, Green and Brown challenge this week.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
