DV #227 Summer Colours

Today’s challenge at Dream Valley, sponsored by Crafty Sentiments, is Summer Colours.

I have used one of their lovely images, Ladybird and Butterfly, for my card.

I coloured her with copics, and the dots on her dress and stripes on her hair ribbon are stabilo 0.3 pens. They have a lovely range of colours and are super fine for adding detail like the dots. I die cut the image out with one of my Sue Wilson octagon dies, along with an orange polka dotted background. The rainbow striped paper is from the same pad that the polka dot orange came from, Studio Light PPSL129.

I die cut an orange layer, also with Sue Wilson dies. Sadly the paper is only A5, so it wasn’t large enough to get a matching mat from the polka dot paper. The Sunshine sentiment is from a Studio Light die. The final touch, the enamel dots came from a very large chinese version of ebay!!!

  4. I love this bright cheerful image and it is beautifully made. Just one little thing - had you thought of scanning your A5 sheet of polka dots up to A4. The colour might not be as perfect but it could be adjusted. Just a thought.

    1. Oh Carol I hadn't thought of that... Although my scanner never seems to scan the colour the same way my eye sees it, but it would definitely be worth a try for future use. Thank you for the suggestion.
