Challenge #188 - Colour Me Happy


Hello Everyone

Shirley here this week with a very simple challenge for you all "Colour Me Happy".  So let your imagination run wild and create a card, layout or anything you please using my theme.  Pick your favourite colours that make you happy, use your fave colour combo's or think outside the box - inspire us all.  

For my layout this week I created a background for a b&w photo of my middle DS.  The best thing about b&w is not only do the photos look stunning but you can use any colour or combinations of colours that your heart desires.  I firstly coated my cs with gesso before adding gelatos.




I used a tag and inked it up with Ranger Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade, Scattered Straw, Wild Honey and Broken China. I also used these colors on the Crazy Birds.

For more texture on the background I worked with the Alphabet stencil designed by Tim Holtz with Ranger Distress ink Walnut stain.

I added some googly eyes, a tiny hart and a sentiment from the Dylusions Set "The right words"!



Amanda

Fall colors are my favorite color combination - there is something about them that I find so relaxing!

Hi Everyone my humble apologies for the mix up with the link in. It is ultimately my fault so I will accept the blame. I am located in Australia and the time difference always confuses me no end. I have added a link for you all now and am about to head off to check out your creations. Thank you all for playing along... I so can't wait to see your works of arts! Hugs Shirl
