Colour Create 5 and Saturday Sketchers 40

Is Blue and Brown

For this week's extra option we would like you to use lace and pearls,

but please remember that this is not compulsory

Ok, onto this weeks sketch and here's a sketch for those of you who love lots of layers / different papers, we might get more scrapbookers taking part this week too, maybe by substituting the sentiment for some journalling perhaps ;)

This card was done by using a dark brown as my base card.

Then a light blue for two of the strips. These I put through my cuttlebug to emboss

The Triangle pieces were done from blue sparkly paper.

The strip of brown and the brown behind the text came free with a magazine

The text and stamps are from the Murrey and Ethel stamps set.

I coloured the lady using my tria markers

(and even managed some shading, I am learning)

and then finished the card with the blue gems.

Thanks for looking

Please check out the challenge sites as there are some amazing cards there.

I love this card Nicky. That image is one of my favourites, although I still have to get it for myself. Love the way you coloured her. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
