Summer of Colour Week 1: blue+blue+green

June 10th 2015


Oh wow do I love how this turned out!! I've made this for 2 things - firstly the Summer of Colour has started again over at Kristin's Twinkle Twinkle Blog and this year the theme is "Colour by Number" and for this first week the "formula" is: 1 blue + 1 blue + 1 green! Green and blue are not often colours I use lots of but I'm really happy with how this all looks.


I've also added lots of texture to my card so I can enter at the "Texture" themed challenge at the Cardz 4 Guyz Challenge this week!

 
 
I sprayed the background with 2 shades of blue and one of green and spritzed with water and then added some paw prints with texture paste and resprayed the prints with green to make them stand out. I tore some scraps of paw print dog paper and layered them then sprayed those too for more colour. to finish I added some sticky builders mesh, sprayed muslin cloth, cut the bones and "woof" on the Silhouette and then of course my favourite little Pitt Bull Stamp from my favourite artist JessicaLynnOriginal coloured with Copic Markers - of course I did a 2-toned blue scarf for the Summer of Colour theme LOL!!!
