Colour crazy

Sadly, this is my last week as a Guest Designer on Tuesday Throwdown - I've so enjoyed my time with them and am very grateful for being invited.

Today's challenge 113 is 'colour crazy'. I've chosen to use mainly orange and purple as my colour scheme, something that isn't used together too often.

The image, coloured with copics, was supplied by Digital Delights who are sponsoring the Tuesday Throwdown challenge.

For the background of my card I used a piece of Basic Grey wisteria, colouring the cream flowers with an orange copic and also colouring the inside of the purple flowers. I've sometimes used glitter on patterned paper before, but I can't remember that I've ever actually coloured anything in, so this is a 'first'.

The matting layers behind the image were die cut with a nestie using my cuttlebug.

The sentiment was computer generated and printed.

Colours were inspired by the photo supplied for For your inspiration 36:

This is also for:

Basic Grey 75: anything goes (using wisteria paper)
One stitch at a time 128: use a digi
Stampin' sisters in Christ 154: use punches, dies or shapes of any kind
