Well, I did try to warn you! This is a very bright card I know, but what a powerful colour combo!
The weekly sketch challenge on Craftbubble's Let's Get Stamping forum includes the added twist of using a new technique or product, or something you haven't used in a while, plus a colour you don't use often. I followed the sketch for this card and decided to use the bright colour combo of lime green and magenta - not a combo I use often, although they do work spectacularly well together!
The image is one of the new Sugar Nellie stamps by the artist Leanne Ellis which I acquired recently from Funky Kits, this one is called 'Tell me something'. I just love her frilly skirt and, to me, she called out to be coloured in vibrant shades. I used my ProMarkers and Copics to colour her and found a piece of magenta background paper in my stash that was relatively plain. The two layers of green metallic card were embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder, this little hearts design is just so sweet. My 'not often used' technique was decoupaging with stamped images and I stamped her skirt and flower twice, cut them out and layered them up on the original image, although it isn't obvious from the picture. Another change of style for me was not using any glitter on the card, I do love my bling! mind you, there is a tiny bit of Spica glitter pen on her ring and the frills on her gloves - well, I just couldn't help myself!!!! The flowers are from Prima and the sentiment is from a Whiff of Joy kit which fitted the card perfectly.
I hope you've enjoyed sharing my card today and that my colour choice didn't trigger a migraine!! Have a great day, whatever you have planned. I'd love to know what you think of this card, leave me a comment and I'll be so happy.
