A new colour challenge at The Outlawz


Hello my friends,
Here I am with the first colour challenge at The Outlawz for March. My word, I can hardly believe that 2 months of this year are history.

This challenge is again a regular challenge, with 3 colours and a twist. Laurian has chosen the inspirational photo and the twist is to add some shine.


Being a new month we also have a new sponsor. Sweet Pea Stamps



The DT have made some gorgeous cards for inspiration, so please pop over and have a look. We really would love you to join in this fun challenge.





This is my card using a Sweet Pea digi image, and the layout is using a sketch of Sketch Saturday.



Paper - from my stash
The diecut behind the image was done with one of my first CB dies,  that I have had for years.

Image - Dragonluck I printed it onto a shiny light green paper and tried colouring a little with Distress inkpads, but it wasn't too successful. I printed the flower a second time, coloured with pink Tombow pen...worked a little better and mounted that with 3D. The ladybug I also coloured with Tombow pen and added some dimension glaze over it for the shine. I cut it out and then matted it onto a pink scalloped oval. The pink is also a shiny paper. This shiny paper has been in my stash for so long and I hardly ever use it.

The sentiment is from my new set of Marianne Design sentiments.
Finished it off with a small ladybug (the last one...had it for ages) and pearls

This is an unusual image and I LOVE it. The flower pops and yet with all the pretty you let the dragon still be the focal point. Wonderful card!! Thanks for sharing and joining us at Doodle Pantry's Challenge #3 Ants in the Pantry.
