Bright colours!

Yes, I know I said I wasn’t going to be doing challenges this week, but I also made this card yesterday to join in with a challenge on CB Forum and it fits beautifully for this week’s Mixed Media Monday, so here it is: 🙂


The idea was to cut lots of brightly coloured strips of paper and lay them down on a card for a simple, quick card – which I did. Then I just happened to have Third Coast’s “Eyes” to hand, so I stamped that on with colourbox magenta and added the blinging girlfriends sticker. I didn’t like the dark red plain strip at the top, so out came Anita’s mauve 3D gloss paint and I attempted some puffy flowerlets and popped a rainbow bead into each one for the centre.

Oh yes, and more of the same with the red dots on the the lemon pearlescent paper (yuck!). A great way to use up scraps of highly patterned paper which I don’t much like and would probably remain in my scraps file ad infinitum!! Thanks very much, Corinne Brad! 😉

And we have Nikki, the host this week, to thank for the chance to be bold and colourful!
