Colour Create

Dena has hosted this week's challenge at Colour Create this week and chosen pink, orange and green with hearts as the optional extra.

The challenge this week is sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and they have put together this wonderful summer selection of ribbons as the prize this week

I had little choice of papers this week as most of my crafting stash was packed away waiting to be collected by the removal people who came three days earlier than originally arranged. Just to add to the chaos I had a gas leak and had to call in the emergency services who turned off my gas supply whilst they mended their end of the leak. They refused to turn it back on until I got a gas fitter in to mend the leak by my fire - another day lost!!
My computer was packed away and I am using a laptop that
will not do what I want it to. I am now crafting in an empty house on the floor (lol) but am determined to at least do my DT cards albeit with 
limited resources.
On to the card - I used Daisy and coloured her with Copics. The hearts are cut with a Spellbinders die and the flourishes with a QuicKutz one. The flower is a mixture of Petaloo and Prima, I haven't a clue what the papers are - what was left of them are on their way to Germany.
I don't really like this card and the photograph is pathetic (my daylight lamp has also gone and the weather is so pathetic it hasn't really been light today).

The card looks good to me, Heather!!!! Love the combination of warm reds and cool greens you've used.

Best of luck with the move.

Absolutely stunning Heather. You always colour your images so well and pick the perfect paper and embellishments.
Thank you so much for being so committed - can't imagine how uncomfortable crafting on the floor must be. Hope the move to Germany goes smoothly for you hunny (and that life over there will be less chaotic - lol).

Oh dear Heather you do seem to be having a bothersome time of it. Still I think you've done a great job with limited resources, your card is very pretty.

Dena said...

Heather, I think your card turned out great. I can't believe you did it on the floor and all. Wow such dedication! Those hearts and swirls are so pretty and your coloring is to die for! Hope your move goes well and you can get back to normalacy. Hugs, Dena

Hi Heather,
I've just got back from my holiday and I think your card is gorgeous! I'm really useless at colouring in these Sugar Nellie images because of the fiddly flowers but your colouring is brilliant! It looks really 3D!
I also love the pretty red flower.
Good luck with the move, I hope everything is going OK. :)
Love, Georgia xx
