Green, Yellow, Orange & Blue

Good evening to you ..... I hope you have had a wonderful day.  I'm thrilled as I have managed to colour an image and complete a card tonight!  My daughter actually went to bed like a good girl for the first time this year! Woo Hooooooooo!!  I found myself sitting at my craft desk at my usual time of 7.10pm!!

(on the 2nd Jan she fell out of her cot and broke her arm .. we then put her into a 'big girl' bed because she was to terrified to go back in the cot ... and since then I have to sit with her every night until she falls asleep .. which sometimes takes hours!)

Ok ... well that is enough of my personal life for you .. he he he ... I'm sure you are really here to look at my card .. so here it is...

 I have used one of the brand new Wryn images from Tiddly Inks ... isn't she a cutie!  She was a joy to colour and I even tried something new with her hair.  I usually colour brown hair .. sometimes black ... but I wanted this gorgeous girl a little different.

I used copic markers to colour her :-
Hair - YR15, YR18 & R17
Blue - B05
Yellow - Y08
Green - G07
White - COO
Skin - E000
So as you can see not many colours ... I have HEAPS of colours .. but I like to see what I can do with minimal colours sometimes.  Not everyone has a lot of colours (yet ..he he he .. they are addictive!) so it's always nice to see that you can get a great result still.

I have used papers and flowers from my stash.  The flowers are from Kaisercraft ... as are the clear acrylic sticky circle things (called droplets).  I also stuck a mini droplet on the yellow circle on her shoe and a clear one on the frogs eye.

Well must be off .... going to try and colour another image before bed .. or perhaps I will make the most of this 'earlier' night and read my book.

Thankyou so much for stopping by .... hope to see you back again soon.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
Tiddly Inks Challenge #78 - Colour (Green, Yellow, Orange & Blue)
iCopic  Weekly Challenge #65 - Unloved colours (I don't like orange and not a huge fan of yellow either)


  1. This is lovely Carly, great colour combination.

  2. Perfect colours for our challenge, way to go, the DP is spot on! Gorgeous colouring btw.

    Sorry that your little one is still having a rough go at it. You may have already tried this?, but you could consider a toddler bed. It's not as HIGH off the ground as a regular bed. Since it uses the crib mattress it's the same dimensions that the little ones are used to.

    When my little guy went up to the big boy bed from a toddler bed, we still had some issues, but when we asked him what he "needed" in order to sleep in the bed himself, he gave us a small list, once we got the things on the list, he seemed to settle in. In particular, he wanted two pillows - go figure?

  3. This is beautiful, lovely colour combination and gorgeous image:) Sandra H
