Craft Your Passion #147 Colour Challenge

Well its Monday, which means its time for another challenge at Craft Your Passion!  Can you believe  that six months has gone by since I started as a design team member?  This is the last challenge for the term, which means its my last challenge as part of the DT at Craft Your Passion Challenges.  I've had a great time, and I wish all of the new DT members well.  They will definitively see me participating from time to time!  In the meantime we have a new challenge this week!

This week we have a colour challenge for you:

Makes you think of spring!  Here is what I came up with:

I started with this cute image from Mayzy Art, colouring her with pencil crayons in green and purple.  I love how the hair turned out!  I trimmed her out and assembled the rest of the card.

I decided on a black card base, then chose a dark pink mat and the lovely aqua pattern. I also trimmed a white mat.  The aqua piece was trimmed longer than I needed, then I used a wavy template to tear the piece into strips.  I layered the pieces as I glued them to the white mat. The extra length allowed me to layer the pieces easily without having any gaps.  Once the glue was dry I used my fingers to curl the edges a bit for more definition.  I added some ribbon and adhered the panel pieces together and added some ribbon.  The panel was then adhered to the card front.

I added a bow, and some stick pins.  Some green rhinestones were the final touch.

As per usual I kept the inside blank until I use it, and matted a white piece of card stock with the same papers I used on the front.

Now its your turn!  Create your project with the above colour scheme and link it to Craft Your Passion Challenges by February 3rd in order to qualify for some prizes.  Don't forget to check at the blog to see what can be won this week!

  1. Great card, beautiful mermaid. Putting all those together would be a challenge but you did it great!

  2. Hey Cathy! I am grinning over your card! I didn't even notice the layered torn paper till I read what you wrote - the "wave action" is inspired! I love the coloring and the image you chose!

  3. Love the wavy background. You add such cool creative touches. Fabulous take on this colour challenge and beautiful colouring of the image. It's been a pleasure to see your creations each week. I'm sorry you are leaving the CYP team but wish you all the best in whatever comes next for you...from one Canuck to another :)
