PTT 112 - Color

Hi Friends!

Easter is just a few weeks away and spring is on the way!  I can't wait for sunny warm days so we can get out side and enjoy the day.  I am back with another challenge today with Party Time Tuesdays!  This week is a color challenge.  Aren't the pastel colors pretty?

Our sponsors this week:

Our fabulous sponsors provided us with some awesome goodies this week to play with.  The image is generously provided by The Paper Nest Dolls. The Robin's Nest kindly provided us some glitter paper and dew drops to use.  The image is Cupcake Anyone and is printed on cryogen paper and colored with copics.  I matted her using Spellbinders Fleur de lis Rectangles die.  For the card, I used an altered concertina fold card.  The tutorial can be found here.  I punched the top with EK success punch and decorated it with MME, Prima, and The Robin's Nest papers.  I added some embossing to the yellow cardstock to give it some fun texture and added some Robin's Nest dew drops and a flower to decorate the card.

Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E21
Hair:  E11, E13, E15, E18
Dress/Shoes:  BG11, BG15, BG32, RV32, RV34
Cupcakes:  Y00, Y11, Y02, BV0000, BV000, BV20

When I said altered concertina card earlier, I added a pocket to the back of the card and made a tag.  I just feel like there is no place for a sentiment or a note on this card without it.  I made the tag using Tim Holtz distress inks (Peacock Feathers, Spun Sugar and Mustard Seed).  I flicked some water onto the tag and heated it.  I added flourishes around the outside of the tag to add some depth.  The heart was embossed with Peacock Feathers distress ink and clear embossing powder.  Once finished with all the ink, it was finished with some flowers, a brad and tulle.  The sentiment is by Amy R "Magical Wishes".   It fits nicely in the pocket on the back. 

Ok, so you have seen mine, I want to see yours!  Come on over to Party Time Tuesdays and show us your creations inspired by the colors in the picture above.
