Rick St Dennis

Brown sugar challenge   25th April 

This weeks sponsor is :

The image i choose was my little chickadee

I wasn't sure what colours i was going to use, 
 i decided not to go down the traditional Easter colours.
as the image said Easter to me.

I selected a few pastel colours for the egg and browns for the bird.

I used apricot, pale blue and pale pink & caramel  & tan
plus grass for the grass !

I found a sheet of double sided card that worked for the image and cut it in half so i could use both sides.
I cut a piece big enough for the image,then i cut the other piece so it would matt on to the A5 card blank.
I decided to matt both of them on to  a piece of silver mirror board,  I cut a piece big enough to fit the larger bit,  then  gutted the middle so i had a bit to matt on to the smaller bit. 

Then i die cut a "tree of wonder"  tattered lace die to add at the side.
To finish off the card i used a piece of the doubled sided card that was left over and also mounted it on to silver mirror card, and added a piece of a sentiment strip.

Hope you like my creation

I started off with the idea of using blue (cyan)
and obviously green (grass) for the clover leaves.

 Skin : Vanilla, Satin & Almond
Hair: Tan, Gold & Pastel Yellow 

I found a piece of double sided paper to use for the layers,
the piece I used  was from a knickerbocker glory paper pack.

I then made a green "flower" from a piece for green ribbon, gathered together.
To finish off the card i added the best wishes sentiment

Shoes Anything goes / Girly

This week over at Creative Moments our sponsors are:

The theme is Anything Goes / Girly
I choose the shoes image

 I didn't want to go down the usual pink route when it said girly,
so decided to go with blues instead.

I choose three shades of blues from my pro markers:
Arctic Blue
& Powder blue, 
and black for the heel.

To colour the box at the bottom i decided on a bit
of zentagle...   a drew some flowers to reflect those on the shoes.

I then matted the image onto black card, and them on to 
a piece of black and white patterned paper from  papermania  
Then added it all to a white card.

To finish i added a LOV sentiment

Thanks for visiting my blog and hope to see you again soon
