Copic Colour Challenge #23

(Mr Blogger has finished sulking and is now accepting my piccies - thank you Mr B.)

Hello everyone. Another dull day here but it has been nice and bright in my craft room thanks to the Copic Colour Challenge. You can't get much brighter than orange! The colours for this week's challege are R35, YG63 and YR04. I only have one of these colours, YG63 so I chose the nearest I have to the other two and came up with R32 and YR16.


Here's what I used to make this card:

Stamps: flowers from Magnolia Summer Club kit; butterfly from a Penny Black clear set
Colouring medium: Copic Ciaos
Tools: Fiskars "Sunburst" border punch, Nestabilities "Classic Square" and "Scallop Square"
Accessories: Ribbon and pearls from stash; Glossy Accents for flower centres; foam squares to pop up the centre panel

Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit my blog.

See you soon and happy crafting.

Hi Clare

Just popping my to say thank you for sticking with me whilst I've been a bad blogger and also how much I appreciate all your kind comments. Not out of the woods yet and hospital again tomorrow, but I'm remaining positive and adamant I will be able to take my classes on Friday - can;t let the girls down can I.

And I love this card, the colours are so vibrant.

What a gorgeous card Clare - I've been trying to leave a comment all week (I'm on mum's computer today so fingers crossed) - the black & white one from yesterday is stunning!

Could you email your address to apassionforpapertrey@yahoo.co.uk so I can send the piece of cake out to you?

Hugs,

Wish I'd popped over here when you posted this fabulous card ... we've had rain every day since the schools broke up 3 weeks ago and could do with some sunshine to look at.
