DYSU Challenge #63

Morning all - time for another challenge over at Do You Stack Up? and this week we want you to Use Your Favourite Colour.

This week we have three very generous sponsors..........

Karen's Doodles - Winner's Choice of 3 Digis

Little Darlings - $10 gift certificate

For my card this week, I have used this totally gorgeous "Delicate Dancer" from A Day For Daisies which I have had for quite some time and have been dying to colour up. Now choosing your favourite colour may sound easy but when you have more than one, two or even three favourite colours, the choice becomes quite difficult!!!!  So, I went with a couple of favourites - aqua and pink which I love putting together with black. I have kept the card fairly simple so as to show off this beautiful image.

Have you ever done something with an image and swore you would not do it again and then, go ahead and do it again because you forgot what happened the first time?  Well,that is exactly what I did with this card - I Stickled the pom-poms on her dress and then remembered too late that it causes the ink to bleed - grrrrr.  Hence the black splodges!!!!  They don't actually look that bad in real life but next time I will use glue and loose glitter - lol.

Medium - Promarkers
Papers - BoBunny "Persuasion"
Doily - Ribbonbox
Ribbon, cardstock and gems - stash
Sentiment - TLC  freebie

So that is my little piece of inspiration for this week's challenge. Do take a look at the rest of the team's favourite colours and then show us yours.  There are some great prizes to be had for three lucky winners and also the Top 3 picks - one of which will be asked to be a future Guest Designer.
Thank you once again for popping by.
Happy crafting
Denise xx
