Two Colours Only

Good morning pop pickers! Hah I have always wanted to say that.  Those of you of a certain age and living in the U.K. will remember Tony Blackburn saying that at the start of his shows - everyone else will not have the foggiest lol!  This is the last day of my dog sitting my sister will be round shortly too pick them up.

Today sees a brand new challenge at the Paper Shelter and this week's theme is Two Colours.  Mmmmm quite a challenge but we only want to see two colours (skin tones are ok as extra).  Here is my card:


The image is called In the Twenties and I have been dying to colour her for ages!  She is available here either coloured or not and comes with some lovely backing papers too. I coloured her with my Copics and then cut and matted her with Spellbinders Long Classic Rectangles distressing the edges slightly with Brushed Corduroy DI.  The papers are Prima Melody and the border has been made with my SB Edgeabilities. The flourish is Marianne and the pearls are from my stash.  The sentiment is LOTV and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl. Here is a side view:


As usual we have a fabulous prize up for the lucky winner:



Please pop over to the challenge to see what the rest of the fabulous DT have done!

Challenges I would like to enter:

Addicted to Stamps - Make Your Mark
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for looking today and any comments you leave, its always lovely to read them! See you tomorrow! Take care xx
