A new Challenge! Winter Blues.........

>> Monday, July 2, 2012

Good Morning Everyone!
Well i hope you enjoyed last months challenge! How Hard was it! Even as designers we all had to think "outside the box" for that one!

This months challenge is not so hard. WINTER BLUES.....Using only B, BG and BV.

As we now are right in the middle of winter here in Australia, i am sure everyone can agree it is COLD!
But the colour range of B,BV and BG do not have to always be such cool colours, sure i would love to see icicles, cute characters and critters all rugged up in scarfs,hats and coats, but with BV and BG in the mix that can give such huge range to colour with.

The first card i have made to share today is using a whole bunch of BV and BG colours. I will be honest i did use 3 E colours to do skin....i did not want her to look like she had frostbite!! I also found that the darker BV colours were great to create hair and the lighter BV's are great for shadowing!

I used Furry friend Mae Digital image, along with a Fiskars border punch,and a dienamic die. The sentiment was a sticker from EAD designs.

Here are the Copic colours i used.

Along with the above pics i used E00 ,02 and 11 for the skin .

I have to admit that this looks a little christmassy which i was trying to stay away from so i made another card.

This card i tried to use a lot more BV's on the image. I wanted to share with you that you do not have to have your whole card looking christmassy when using these colours.

Here is what i came up with.

With this card i used Some Odd Girl stamp Holly Gwen, kaisercraft papers cock-a-doodle doo and the Gwen in bloom sentiment with embossing powder. the Polaroid shape i made on my PC and printed it out and roughed it up with distress inks.

Here are the copics i used.

So i cannot wait to see the creations you make with this colour challenge. If you are looking for the stamps i used or maybe another some odd girl stamp to colour or even a B,BV or BG to colour with go on over to the Mad 4 Markers store to get all your copic and stamping goodies!!!

Well good luck, and do not forget to enter your card or project in the right hand side bar this month!!!
And if you would like a second chance of winning head on over to My Blog where i am holding the same challenge this month also so link up your projects there too!
