INTERNATIONAL ART AND SOUL - CHALLENGE NO 8 - HOT COLOURS


Good afternoon peeps - here's my card for the IntAAS fortnightly JFF challenge.  Our theme is Hot Colours and I found some gorgeous hot pink card in my stash so I just had to use it!



I love this Sassy Cheryl image and I've probably used it before but it is such a cute image and so nice to colour.    There are two ladybirds in the picture so I thought I would use my ladybird die on here.  It's one of those dies that just begs to have a bit of shaping to it (on the underneath so that it doesn't lie flat).  I made the bugs out of the same hot pink card, 'cos I could!

Ingredients

Image - 'Avery's Big Flower' - Sassy Cheryl
7" x 7" white card - Anna Marie Designs
Hot Pink Card - DCWV 'Christmas Card Stock' stack
Floral Paper - Tonic Studios 'Simply Nature' 8" x 8" paper pad
Ladybird die - Elizabeth Designs Dies
Flower/leaf border die - Unbranded dies
Double Stitched Frame die - Unbranded dies
Leaf die - Unbranded dies
Copic Markers
Gems (absolutely gorgeous irl) - unbranded

I hope you can join  us in this challenge - we are getting closer to summer (sorry, you'll have to forgive my sense of humour) so how about some nice hot colours.  We'd love to see all your creations.   You know we are now a 'just for fun' challenge but we do have lovely badges (designed by our Jane) for you when you win!!!

Take care of yourselves - must go now 'cos the doorbell is trumpeting - Biscuit has his own infra-red doorbell and when he stands at the back door there's the sound of an elephant trumpeting in the dining room telling us he wants to come back in.   Will tell you about it next time - in the meantime just let your imaginations run riot!!

Take care of yourselves and your families.

Love Suexxx
