"Hangin' On The Telephone..."

The Craft Challenge colour block.


So this is my first entry for the CRAFT challenge blog who not only picked me as their 'Star Of The Month' for January but also asked me to be a guest design team member too! The challenge itself is based around a block of five colours which range from red through orange to pink (pictured above), so I brought out my new downloaded Digi's from Saturated Canary (isn't that just the best name? especially for stamps, so original). Coloured with the old faithful ProMarkers, I used a couple of sheets of paper from Jo's paper pad (Papermania's Capsule Collection) and the fabulous die is one of Papermania's too, used with a Whimsy stamp and some Core'dinations cardstock to tie it all together. Overall I really like the finished look of the card, I very rarely use oranges or yellows in my colouring, so this was a bit of a challenge for me and I think I was successful, so much so that I will definately use these colours again, so fresh and clean.
