* Colour Crazy: Penelope Hugs


Today sees the start of a new colouring challenge at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog. The challenge is always Anything Goes, but of course your card must feature some colouring. You can use any colouring medium you wish. 

This week Oddball Art is the sponsor.
I was lucky to receive a digi stamp to work with and I chose Penelope No 3.
Here is my card using one of my favourite colour combos pink and green:

I cut the image with a Cottage Cutz Stitched Rectangle die and coloured Penelope with Copic markers, adding a few white highlights. Leaving the die in place, I blended Memento Pear Tart ink to the stamp background. I matted the image onto pink card.

The background is made from patterned glitter card by Deco Time. I chose two coordinating patterns and glued them together with a thin strip of pink card separating them. I matted the background papers onto pink card.  Next I added a strip of pale pink sheer organza ribbon along the bottom of the card. The image and mat was popped on foam tape and added to the centre of the background.  

I cut two pieces of the ribbon and tied a knot in them, then attached the 'bow' to the bottom left side of the image. I die cut a flower circle, blended Picked Raspberry ink around the edges and stamped the word 'Hugs' in black. This was placed to the centre right of the image. I had some pale pink mulberry paper flowers in my stash, but as they were too pale, I added some colour with Distress Ink. When they were dry, I re-shaped them and glued a green gem to the centre of each. I arranged them in the top left corner along with some die cut leaves.

Many thanks to Oddball Art for sponsoring this challenge.
I hope you'll find time to share your coloured projects at the Colour Crazy Challenge
