I love the image I chose this week for the Squigglefly.colour challenge. It is simply called Strawberries by artist Eline Pellinkhof. You can find the colour challenge on the Squigglefly SNR Card Universe forum. Each fortnight a different colour challenge is given this one is red, green and blue
Here is my card.
For something a bit different, I decided to watercolour my image with watercolour pencils. This is the first time I have watercoloured a digi image and I was quite impressed as the printer ink did not run or smudge.
First of all I chose the size for the strawberry basket then I also selested one of the loose strawbwrries and manipulated it in to several strawberries of various sizes. I coloured all then cut out the 3 smaller ones and mounted them using 'scrap dot's' silicone for some extra height. Unfortunately that is not obvious in this photo.
The card stock I used for my card is from the Bazzill criss cross range and are very nice strong and vibrant colours. The punched border was made using my band new Martha Stewart punch.The circles were cut using the nestabilites classic circle and pinking circle.The final touch was the organza ribbon. I don't often add bows but was pretty pleased with how thisone looked.
I liked this colour combo so much I decided to make another card
The dump truck image has been repeated and is done in two different sizes.
I coloured the trucks in Prismacolor Pencils and blended with odourless mineral spirits. I used the same Bazzill cardstock as the strawberry card with the addition of black and bright blue card. I stamped Happy Birthday (by Stamp It Australia) in Black Brilliance ink on to the blue card.
The card size is DL and was a textured white. It looked a bit boring so I stamped the background with an old Hero Arts background stamp. I used Colorbox chalk ink in Amber Clay.Finally I layer it all together.
Until Next Time
Inking of you all
