Colour Create Challenge Week 12

Wahoo me! I’ve done a challenge card 🙂 Been wanting to get one done for ages! This one is for the fab folks over at Colour Create Challenge who have a pink, black and white theme (with some optional polka dots thrown in for good measure) this week based on the purse below.

I’ve gone heavy on the black, which is a new one on me as I don’t really use lots of black. The background paper is from DCWV Glamour pack and I’ve used embossed Core-dinations black and pink card with some sanding. The image is from a Wendie Rhodes stamp set and I’ve used Versamark with chalks to colour it.

The fabulous wired organza ribbon is from the fantastic candy I was lucky enough to win from Tara and the girls – thank you 🙂

Stamps – Wendie Rhodes
Ink – VersaMark
Colouring – Chalks
Papers – DCWV

    Hi Kim, love this card – the colours are fabulous. I especially like your article in this months Papercraft Essentials Magazine. The black and yellow colours look brilliant together – I am having a dig in my stash to find some like colours – I think its going to be my new favourite colour match. Brilliant work – keep it up

    Hi Kim,

    Beautiful things you make!

    I wanted to ask you a question: What (how) did you do to get the post of the Candy on top of the page and have it NOT CHANGE? I hope you understand my question, cause I know what I mean to ask but don’t quite know if I myself understand what I’m asking …haha (happens sometimes).

    I have a Swap going on and think it would be a good idea to have it at the beginning (like you have your candy) so that everyone can see it “just when they enter my blog”…

    Thank you.
