I am so excited that the new challenge blog MAKE IT COLOURFUL has finally begun! Thank you so much to the many of you who have spread the word because you love to colour too!
We hope that you will enjoy playing along with our challenges and be inspired by the creative team of ladies from around the world!
Update as I write this: Haahaa
I am having a little freak out moment as I am writing this 8 minutes prior to when the post is supposed to go live.Plus my scheduled post on the colourful blog now has not gone live and so I am ripping my hair out trying to push it through!! Nothing ever runs smoothly right? tee hee
On to my card!
I had such trouble trying to decide what images I would use and at the last minute completely went in a whole different direction which has left me scrambling!!
In the end I decided to go with a manly theme using predominantly Cool Colours.
I thought I would have fun showing how Aussie Santa can be turned into a regular Aussie Joe. We have just had an Aussie BBQ designed to compliment Aussie Santa. Of course it features a number of the traditional foods found on our BBQ’s, with some prawns thrown on, a big steak and of course some snags!
Here is a close up of the image
As mentioned earlier in my post, I decided to go with cool colours. Aussie Santa is wearing a traditional workman’s blue singlet (unfortunately it’s a bit bright really) with his khaki shorts and blue rubber thongs. He’s wearing an Akubra hat and of course he’s drinking a Vic Bitter beer!
I have included some information on the challenge post that helps show the warm and cool colour choices.
Here’s a list of the Copic Marker colours I used:
Hat: E30, E33, E17, blender
Skin: E000, E01, E11
Singlet: B21, B24, B26, B28, B93, B95
