Another Double Challenge












Boy am I on a roll - LOL. I've managed to do another card for 2 challenges. This one follows Kellie's Sketch Challenge #3 and uses the colour combo from Colour Create - Neon Green and Black!

I first saw this colour combo on the divine Miss Dena's blog. I'm a bit of a green addict so this colour combo has been rattling around in my head waiting to be used. Teamed with the black it's absolutely fabulous!

I used one of the Motivet images Kellie very kindly let me stamp off recently - I have already coloured him in yellows and browns so this looked quite strange next to that one. But put him into this fabulous layout from Kellie with more Basic Black and Green Galore CS and it just seemed to work! I know there's a touch of white in there - ah well - it's called artistic license I believe - LOL.

Not sure why I am inside - the weather outside is delightful - warm and lovely Spring breezes - with the wind chimes singing away! Am off to enjoy it... hope your day is wonderful too.

Wow Deb!!! This is so cute!!! I love your coloring!! The colors are gorgeous!! What a hard combo and you rocked it!! Hope you are having a great weekend!!

Lynda S said...

Don't know why...but this card (the colours at least) have a ghoulish feel to it. However, the cute wee character definitely cancels that element out. Beautiful colouring Deb (as usual) and a FAB effort on a challenging colour combo.

Kellie Winnell said...

That cat looks a bit wicked, don't you think? I'm feeling sorry for the frog! LOL

I love the monochromatic look with the punch of green.

Ahhhh, sweet spring breezes. As much as I'm a fall/winter girl, I can't deny that spring weather is something very special. Enjoy!

Love and hugs,
Lisa
