Coloure Creat Challenge vs High Hopes

Lets bring it on! Here we go my 1st challenge for this year and many many more to come. At Colour Create Challenge Blog the theme is: LEMON&LIME additional SPRING or SUMMER FLOWERS. I do have flower but not in the above colour. I had to make a birthday card for today as Alfie was invited to a birthday party. This stamp suited this colour skim perfectly. At High Hopes the theme is: Put a bow on it! When I seen it I thought how perfect this is. This card what I made few days ago just perfect for this challenge. This was the 1st time i inked this little dragon up and definitely not the last.
The recipe for this project
  • Take a backing paper with Happy Birthday on it mine is from Paper mania
  • After, have your chosen card and stamp your image out, in my case it's High Hopes Make a Wish
  • Colour it. I coloured with my NEW Pro-Markers. Colours for the dragon are: Lime Zest, Bright Green, Salmon Pink & Grey Green, for the fire: Crimson&Hot Pink, for the cake: Hot Pink, Pink Carnation, Cerise, Tulip Yellow, Crimson & Bright Green. I used Sandstone to do shadow under dragon and cake. For the sky I used blue chalk and for the base I used brown and green.
  • Next cut your image out with your nesties I used Label 9
  • Dig into your stash and get some ribbon & some sequences
  • For the envelop&tag get your Cute Companion CD Volume 1 from Crafters Companion
I had a great fun to use my Pro-markers. I'm in love with them. I think I got to get the 1st set too lol long time to go as I just got only 73 out of 148 well almost half. I bet by the time I get all there will be more colours to buy. I have used fixative for my chalk so when they handle it no one smudge it. I used Spray&Shine from Crafters Companion but you can buy cheep hair spray to fix it. I used my nesty to give a lovely shape to my image. The ribbon was a left over and it just came handy.
I bought these lime green sequences from 99p store it come with the little flowers and beads too.
Inside I used my sequences again and found a matching backing paper on my Cute Companion CD I just love this CD so versatile. I printed out a matching envelop and a tag to put on the present.
