Colour Wheel Challenge

Back home now, so glad that we were down at Ian's this weekend cos we got snow!!! Think almost the whole country has had it now but we never really get snow at home so it's still a novelty for me lol. We did actually get some snow here last night (think we may have managed half a cm but it's pretty much gone boo), still freezing cold though and if that's not an excuse to stay inside and make some cards and things I don't know what is lol. So I've gotten a few cards done and have made a mini canvas for a christmas present, got to try and get hold of some more tomorrow so can get the rest made.

Anyways onto today's card, this is for the 5th Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge - the challenge is based on a colour wheel, you had to find your favourite colour and then use the colour opposite, so my favourite colour is pink so I had to use green as green is opposite pink on the colour wheel (all will become clear if you take a look at the colour wheel (here) ) I have to say green is not my favourite colour at all, and I tend to only use it in small amounts with other colours or when specifically asked for a card in green.

This is possibly my first card with lace on it, mainly because I only found my lace last week during a clear-out, I made a little lace flower to finish this off, I've not pulled the thread too tight as I needed the card to fit in the envelope and my first attempt was a bit bulky.

And a bit of decoration for the inside too

Supplies: 'Ironing Nikki' Stamp by Ladybug Crafts Ink, Papers by Making Memories (I think), Sugar-Coating by Doodlebug
Extras: White Card, Copics, Promarkers, Green Ink Pads, Gems, Lace from Stash, Flock

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges...

Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 5 - Colour Wheel Challenge

Right I'd best get on, got another mini canvas that I want to get finished tonight and then make a list of what else I need to get made before Christmas (which I'll probably start panicking before even got half way through). XOX

HI Helen, that's a great card and I love your text. You're sooo right. You know my husband once gave me a new iron for mothersday; I'll tell you that he regrets that move until today!! I will NEVER let him forget. But he's learned his lesson LOL!! No more iron's or other household appliences for me at birthdays and so on hihihi!!
Hugs, Frea

Helen Ann said...

lol, I knew I had to do a birthday card using ironing nikki - my mum had requested it and the advantage of using a colour that's not one of my favourites means that I had limited papers to chose from lol.
And the lace, again not a fan of it which is probably why it had ended up buried at the bottom of the drawer lol
