We Canadians love to talk..er....bitch about the weather. We would not be proud Canucks if we didn't. It has been hot, sticky and humid which I hate, but then the temps go down by 20 in a day before climbing back up and so the roller coaster of weather crappola continues. I bet, come mid July, it will just be hot and sticky...ughhh. I told you I am a proud Canadian!

I love Blue! What can I say, when I was 3, I asked my mom for some paint. She asked why and I told her I wanted to paint the dog blue. No, I didn't get the paint. I also love purple so I hade to create this scene with these colours in mind. I stamped the image in black and used my gamsol pencils to colour in the image. I used my sizzex to cut out the circled leafy design to and glued it in place. I stamped the saying on a piece of scrap I had laying around, added the glitter stickers and crystals...another favourite. Who would not love to be sitting somewhere in Italy, a tiny village, having a glass of wine with some fruit admiring the view? I know I want to be there and would have my best friend with me..

I normally don't like Kraft-the bownish colour. But I had this piece laying around and thought it would be good for the colour challenge. I glued a shimmer pearl white card behind the kraft. I used tombow markers and water-coloured the flower image before fussy cutting it out. I placed it on pop up dots, added some red crystals and stickles to the berries and around the card. I finished it off with some Washi tape at the bottom which I coloured up the gold with some red plus the stickers which I also coloured in red.
Today is a balmy 27C but by this eve drop down and tomorrow we will have a high of 18C. By Friday...back up to 27 and humid.
Great designs! Love how this week's CTD colors look on your Christmas themed card. Thank you for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown!ReplyDelete
I hear ya about the fickle weather, dear friend. Here in Florida, the temp has been seesawing wildly. One day the high is 95... the next day it's 92. :)
I love everything about card #1. I admire that deep blue color (I call it "dog blue")... and I also love the still life artwork and Emerson quote.
On card #2, I'll take Paul Lynde for the win. :)
On card #3, I like how you made the bold choice of brown as a background for a Christmas card... and let me be the first to wish you...
I hope your week is off the a fine start, dear friend BB. Keep your cool and I hope to see you again soon!
Lovely poinsettias and greenery over kraft - love that vintage font on the sentiment, too! Thanks so much for playing at Sparkles!ReplyDelete
Nothing wrong with a blue fog, is there?ReplyDelete
Sorry about the heat and sticky. Hoping you have better weather. The brown is nice (I like brown in the right context), but I can see how using that would be a challenge.ReplyDelete
I'm Italian and yes, I agree: it's lovely drink a glass of good wine and eat fruits especially in a garden with best friend! ;) Beautiful card and the blue give a lovely depth to the framed scene.ReplyDelete
Thanks for joining us at We Love Chocolate Baroque challenge!
