Michelle Perkett New Blue & Brown Challenge

March 22nd 2011
This week's challenge as you can see is to use the colours 'Blue' & 'Brown'. I have used one of Michelle's new images "Grace" and I think she is just beautiful and the blue and brown colours really suit her! I've used blue and brown card and have printed the Grace image on a linen look card which gives a great effect when coloured with copics. I've added a blue ribbon rose embellishment to her dress!


I've made a 'Triangle Fold' card using Grace - here is a picture of the front of the card when it is folded and tied closed with the brown & blue ribbon:


When the ribbon is untied the card opens out to reveal a sentiment inside. The sentiment I have used is "Thinking of You" from CS Designs. I really like the different fold of this card and will definitely use it again.



Make sure you visit the Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team have created for this challenge!

I have entered my "Grace" card in the new Crafty Pad Challenge which simply requires using a digi! And also the Delicious Doodles Challenge which requires a 3 dimensional project. The Makeit Monday new challenge is Anything Goes so I have entered my triangle fold card here as well.
