DV 100 Favourite Colour Combination

Our challenge at Dream Valley for the next two weeks is your favourite colour combination. I have to be honest and say that mine changes from time to time. I am very fond of purples, and currently I seem to be drawn to blues/greens. We are sponsored by Di’s Digi Designs.

DV 100 Favourite Colours 2

I created my card by first spritzing the greens/blues/aquas from the Prima Color Bloom range, onto watercolour card. I then stamped and embossed the two different horses and the smaller of the Fleur-De-Lys from the Visible Image Revolution stamp set in white. I also stamped and embossed the flourish in white and in turquoise, and finally the sentiment is again from Visible Image, but from a separate set to the Revolution.

I edged the underneath of all the white with a grey sharpie marker, and also added glamour dust on top of glossy accents on the horses manes and tails.

DV 100 Favourite Colours Horses

The corners I frantaged in aged Aqua, Aged Teal and Turquoise powders. There is no frippery on this because it’s for my SIL and I thought it was already girly enough with the colours without adding flowers and such to it.

  1. A stunning card. The white horses are beautiful and the glamour dust in their manes and tails makes them look as though they are rearing out of the water. I love your sprayed background, the Fleurs de lis, and the grey marker is a great addition. Sally.x.
