Colour Create Challenge 6

This week's colours at Colour Create might steer you towards Christmas which is fine as you will be able to tick another card off your Christmas list and that always feels good. The colours also work really well for other times of the year though as you will see from the Design Team creations, fabulous aren't they?

Here is your colour combination then:


For this week's extra option we would like you to add wings, but please remember that this is not compulsory. You could use animals and insects that have wings, but many of our well-loved characters also have little wings tucked away (Tilda springs to mind here)!


I am not at all happy with this card - probably because it was done in such a rush at the end of a Manic week. in fact I think I only just managed to get it done in time to be posted.
I used downloaded papers and distressed the edges. I stamped the butterfly in red - first on white paper and coloured in with green and then onto acetate which I layered on top. The acetate hasn't photographed well and does look much better IRL.

Materials
BC - Paper Mill shop : BP - dowloaded - Pink Petticoat (red) & Verena Karolyi (green) : Image - Creative expressions : Sentiment - the Quote Garden : Punches - EKSuccess and Leone Em : Rest from stash

Hi Heather, I think your card is stunning and I love the butterly, so striking, I can just see the acetate and I'm sure it adds great dimension to the card. I love these tones of red and green too, lovely combination. You weren't the last to upload LOL, it was me, I completely forgot to post on the admin blog! Hope you're having a nice Sunday. Chris x
