Woohoo! First Challenge


Yippee! Its finally the first challenge for Make it Colourful! We want you to use either warm or cold colours. That was a no-brainer for me, I find warm colours more my thing. 
I've been waiting nervously for this moment, I'm playing with the big guns here and have been dying to see what everyone has created.

I've used a Hanglaar image that was sent to me and I had a wee bit of trouble with the copics bleeding so please don't look too closely! LOL!  
The background image is from Make it Crafty and its called Daffodil Dell and you can purchase it here
My clouds I did with copics, following  guidelines  from the amazing Annika's blog. I think I need more practice !  Annika  has a tutorial at this link .

The paper is K & Co, flowers from my stash and the green fuzzy swirl is one I cut out with my silhoutte cutter ( I love this toy!!!!) , inked with various  distress inks, covered in flowersoft, then sprayed with glimmermist.  I really like the grassy texture of it ! The button is from my stash, and I bought some bakers twine cos everyone seems to have it at the moment! 
Right, now hop on over to the challenge blog and check out the ab fab creations my talented teamies have produced!

Big guns, hahahahaaaa - don't you dare to sell yourself short, woman!!! Your colouring is top-class!!
And I think you achieved better result with the clouds than me anyway!
Sorry I've been out of loop for so long, it's been more a hospital than a house here for almost a month!
