Here is my strange wee fellow
In an attempt to redeem myself I have tried to pick up the blue floor boards and the white from the childs bed.
Let me know what you think.
I have tried to pick up on the red trim of the cushion and thought a saying that involved dreams was appropriate for cushion. I used a couple of pearls on the centre flowers. I think it turned out quite well.
The fine print...
Flowers from Friendship blooms
Sentiment from Live your dreams
Pearls from Overflow
I think I am becoming a challenge addict, but I love the challenge.
I can see the following colours: Creamy Caramel, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Whispher White and a strange little bobbly lamp stand. I saw Soft sky but have none of that left so had to go without that one. So here is what I came up with: The colours didn't really come out the way I had hoped because the sun is going down but trust me, I used Tempting Turquoise (and I can even spell it now). I used to pearls to replicate the lamp stand in case you are wondering what they are doing on the card.

Hope you enjoy it. Time for a shower before I go out tonight.
For starters I only have a scrap of Groovy Guava left over from the SU feild training night and secondly I used all my tempting turquoise on the card swaps for the SU night and only have scraps left of that colour. What to do....??? So here is my improvisation for lack of card. Thank goodness I had some soft sky left!
I picked up on the flowers and lines in the doonah.

The finer details
Stamps: Flower from SU Friendship blooms, Quote from SU All I have seen
Cardstock: SU Soft Sky, pumpkin pie, pixie pink, whisper white, basic grey and pumpkin pie designer series paper
Misc: Ribbon from overflow, brads from SU Hodgepodge
It is a different style of fold for this card than I am use to which added a bit of difficulty for me and it took me ages to get that bow bowed. How to you tie a bow neatly? There must be a trick that I haven't found.
Anyway, lot of fun and a bit of thinking.
P.S. Keesh, the weather is beautiful in Cairns at the moment, just beautiful.
Off to have dinner at homegroup
Stamps: SU Unfrogettable
Water colours: SU Brilliant Blue, Only Orange, Pixie pink, Real Red, Green Galore, Glorious Green
Other bits: Black brads, plastic eyes for the frog
I will be back to try Gina's colour challenge.
When I first saw this I thought 'if only I had a swirly stamp!' But I don't have a swirly stamp (yet). Then I thought 'maybe I need to use a tag' But I didn't. I have changed Kiwi Kiss to Old Olive to fit the Australian colours so this is what I came up with.
I think the little flower at the bottom helps it because the blank space was driving me nuts.
Ok...off to try another challenge
I was playing around with my fishy friends and my new crop-a-dile and thought 'hey, I could make bubbles for these fish' and I think they look quite groovy. Not too sure about all the layers in the background. I gave it a bit more of a 3D look by putting the little fish on small foam spots to lift her from the card. The torn and scuffed card at the bottom was to look like sand (??). Its amazing what you can do with the crop-a-dile!
These two cards use Summer Sun as their card background, then a band of whisper white and then band of real red. The dragon fly comes from 'unfrogettable'. Not sure where the flower came from but it is a stampin up stamp.
This last one is my favourite. The frog is from 'unfrogettable', stamped with stazon onto watercolour paper (which I love) and coloured in with garden green using a blender pen. The dotty paper is a piece given to me with a door prize and comes from the 'summer picnic' designer paper in the current spring catalogue. It is amazing how far you can make a scrap piece of paper. The background card is 10cm x10cm garden green. The tag is ruby red and stamped with thank you from a stamp collection that I again did not name (first timer - I have since learned what to do with the sticky name tag).
I found these quite fun to do and I think they look quite groovy.
