DV #214 Favourite Colour Combination

Out challenge today at Dream Valley is to show us your favourite colour combination. We are sponsored by the wonderful Polkadoodles with 3 of their gorgeous digis for the winner. I have used Winnie with Big Balloon for my card.

I chose blue and green for my colour combination. I don’’t know that I have an actual favourite combination but blue and green definitely appeals to me, although as a Child I can remember a saying ‘Blue and Green should never be seen’. But I love it!

I coloured Winnie with copics. The lovely diecut frame is from Spellbinders, S6-004 Card Creator Detailed Scallops, and I also used two of their Borderabilities Curved Borders Set one to create the wavy mat underneath the main focal point.

The little butterflies are from Sara’s Signature Butterfly Collection from Crafters Companion. You can use this die to cut into your card and leave little butterfly apertures but I wanted all the various sized ones instead to use on my card. I used the same paper from the background, also from Polkadoodles from their Posy Collection, to make the butterflies, and I inked through the die before removing it to give a contrast colour. The flowers are from my stash.
