Colour Challenge

It is a colour challenge at Come and Get it Challenges this week and here is my card:

These are the colours of the challenge.

For this simple card I used a digital image and paper pieced the little outfits in the challenge colours, next I coloured the rain and puddles with Copic Markers and added some diamond glaze to make the puddles look like water.  To complete the card I added some ribbon and a sentiment in the challenge colours.

Come join us this week at Come and Get It.  Thanks for stopping by.


I am entering this card in the following challenges:

2 Sisters - Anything Goes

  1. What an adorable image! I like how you've showcased it, giving the card a clean layout and letting the image take up most of the space. The circle shaped tag with sentiment is such a nice detail too.
