Spring colours at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey my sweet friends!

Time is passing so fast. It is not long till summer is here. Meanwhile i have created a new card for the new challenge over at WhoopsiDaisy. We want you to create something you assosiate with spring colours.

For my card today i have used pale pinkish colours on my papers with hints of green. I realize that it doesn`t show too good on the pic.  To make it pop i have used some sharp yellow seambinding to catch the colour of the balloon on the image. I didn`t actually have yellow seambinding but i used some distress ink (Mustard seed) and some water and got this gorgeous yellow colour. I then added this beautiful vintage button i ordered from Canada a long time ago.


The image i have used is available on sheet #180 and you can find it here in the WhoopsiDaisy digi shop.


The colours i have used are:

Skin:
Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan, Sunkissed pink

Hair:
Sandstone, Mustard, Buttercup

Dress:
Salmon Pink, Coctail pink, Baby pink, 

Balloon:
Sunflower, Canary, Lemon

Mona Eidhammer said...

Hehe, yes i know. I think my head must have been screwed on backwards course i totally forgot that it was today, the challenge was going live. I`ve just finished my creation and i`m just waiting for the glue to dry up before i take some pics. I Wrote a little message in the DT blog earlier explaining why i didn`t have a creation, lol.

I just looove my promarkers. I have also started collecting flexmarkers but i only have 10.

I absolutely adore your card. The colours are fabulous and i looove your creativity. You allways find new ways on how to use the items. Fantastic job.

Hugs...Mona
