This card has been made for Arty Girlz Challenge No. 57 - "Blue and Orange Colour Combo". This was a lovely Challenge, as I would not normally put these two colours together. I looked at my Sugar Nellie stamp called "Giddy Up", and automatically I could see the colour combination working. I have coloured my image in with my Art-Kure WC Brushes, and have then cut it out with my Round Nesty. I have softened the edges of the image, using a Chalk Eye Inkpad. The image has then been layered on a pale blue hammered cardstock, which has also been cut using a Scalloped round nesty. All the backing papers used, have been printed from one of Funky Hands Paper Collection CD's. And for the finishing touches, three strips of ribbon, and four paper flowers in a mixture of Orange and Blue.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit, and please feel free to come back and visit again. Happy Crafting X
