Colour Create Challenge Dt card and other challenges.

Phew hi there peeps
boy what a rush today and so sorry i am late posting my DT card, its half term here and i was picking my daughter up from the local fair at 10pm last night and it was my first day back to work after a week off and there was loads to do, its all rush rush rush so of course i forgot to post my card for this morning.

Anyhow this weeks challenge are the colours Purple, Blue and silver chosen by out lovely teamie Sharon and with the extra option of a male theme.

here is a piccie to help with some inspiration:

we are sponsored by Bunny Zoe Crafts. and the prize is a generous £10 voucher

So here is my card:

Now i did struggle with these colours but i think the best thing to do was to keep it simple, i used my crop a dile on the corners and for the added silver i dug out my embossing powders and gun, i ts a long time since i've used these.

The image is mine from my store found here. called 'a day on the lake'. and i coloured it with copics. Now i did have a little help from Annika from My Messy Crafter. who does a fantastic tutorial on colouring sky with copics, check this out her demo is stunning. Unfortunately i did not have all the colours she used so i adapted mine. I am quite pleased with the result but check out the tutorial you will be sooooo inspired.

I do hope you like it i am entering this into:
