Craft Your Passion #146 Totally Teal

Its another Monday so that means its time for a new challenge at Craft Your Passion.  This time we are going totally teal!  Here is what I came up with:

I started with the digital image from Saturated Canary, isn't she cute?  I coloured her with pencil crayons except for the skin where I used a Copic marker.  I coloured the tapes in the image to match the tapes that I have, then rounded the corners of the panel and inked them with grey.

I covered a panel of white with varying patterns of washi tape, inked the edges, then added some ribbon and attached it to the card front.  The image was foam taped to the card front.

The sentiment printed along with the image, so I trimmed it to size and banner cut the end. The edges were inked and the piece was foam taped in place.  I added some twine as a bow.

The last touch were the rhinestones.  I didn't have any in the shade I wanted so I pulled out my trusty alcohol makers and coloured some clear ones to match.  This is a perfect way to get coordinating embellishments for any project!

As I've usually been doing lately I kept the inside blank and decorated with another panel of washi tape matting an inked piece of white.  A bit more washi tape finished the inside of the card.

Teal is not a colour I usually reach for, so I wasn't sure how this card would turn out.  As it turns out, I had fun with this one so I think I should try colours that I don't usually use more often!  Now its your turn.  Create your teal project and link it up at Craft Your Passion Challenges by Sunday January 27 in order to be eligible for some great prizes.  Check at the blog to see what fun things are being offered this week!
