Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #221- Explosion of Colour

Today's Crafty Cardmakers challenge is a fun one titled 'Explosion Of Colour'. Use your imagination and create, we would love to see your what you make. As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the explosion of colour theme.

I used a clear stamp from Inkadinkado titled 'Birds Galore' and coloured it with Copics and Prismacolor Markers. I did add some glitter to the image but hard to see in the photo. The large flowers were hand punched and sponged with ink. The leaves were die cut. The paper came from a friend and I do not know the name of the paper stack.

It has gotten slightly warmer here in northern Alberta and most of the leaves are gone. Spent a day racking them up and I see I now have to go rake up what was left. Should be the last rake though. Fall is pretty till the leaves are gone and then everything looks so naked. Nothing left to look forward to except the white stuff which does give beauty back to the countryside. Have a great week everyone.

  1. Glenda, I love your explosion of color. Great color combination and your image with the sentiment and mixture of flowers is adorable. Our leaves are just changing. We are a little later than usual but we may see most of the leaves coming down this week as rain is moving in for Halloween and the day after. Ugh! Not many trick or treaters with a 100% chance of rain. Have a super week!

  2. I believe I have that stamp set! From long ago. What a beautifully bright card. And believe me, we would do anything for snow - you are so lucky.

  3. Hi Glenda. Gorgeous colours, that pink is stunning. Love that little bird too. Happy creative week, Angela xXx

  9. Glenda that is a total explosion of colour, wow! You just rock flowers, your card is stunning!

  10. Fans of rare replica watches or rarefied vintage watches can really enjoy artistic re-creations such as these Rolex cloisonne enamel dial replica watches uk homages by Ematelier. For someone who wants to “spruce up” their Datejust 41 or who wants to get a new one and fake rolex then immediately make it unique have some really interesting creative opportunities considering there is an enamel dial specialist that replica rolex isn’t cheap, but who won’t charge what a Geneva-based watch brand fake watches would today.
