Guest Designing at Top Tip Tuesday

Good morning peeps!

As a designer for Kenny K`s Krafty Krew which is sponsoring today`s challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday, i`ve been so lucky have been asked by the lovely Samantha to create something for this challenge. Of course i had to grab the opportunity to give it a try, lol. It`s a real honour as these girls are really talented. Thanks for having me with you for this challenge!

The theme set for the challenge is:

Kidz / Teens

For my card today i`ve used an image called Ryder Cole and he is available here, at Kenny K Downloads. The papers i have used is from the Prima Printery Collection. I roughed up the edges a little bit for a worn look and then matted the image using a stamp shaped die cut from Marianne Design.

The colours i have used are:

Skin: Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan
Hair: Cocoa, Mustard, Buttercup
Trousers: Navy blue, True blue, Sky blue, Arctic blue
Jacket: Umber, Warm grey #3,4 and 5, Shale, Burgundy, Berry red, Lipstick red
Other colours: Black, Pear green, Lime twist, Lime Zest, Lime green

My Top Tip for you:
If you find yourself in the lack of the right colour cardstock to use as a mat behind your layers of design paper or your image, i usually just take a plain white cardstock and use my ProMarkers to colour around the edges with the desired colour. This way you get the exact colour you want. Just remember to soak your edges with a lot of colour so you get those smooth transitions.

Challenges entered:

Papelitos -Anything goes
Through the Craftroom door - Anything goes
Artistic inspirations - Anything goes
Eureka stamps - For the kids
Paper Playtime - Anything goes

I hope you`ll find the time to come and play over at Top Tip Tuesday, and also take a peek at what these fabby girls have created for your inspiration.
