Magnolia Down Under :: colour challenge

The current challenge at Magnolia Down Under is a colour challenge...either:
  • Pink, Brown and Cream/White
  • Orange, Brown and Cream/White
  • Blue, Brown and Cream/White.
Loving all those combinations and being a "hopeless decision maker" I decided to make THREE cards and try all combinations.... so here are my cards...

I did not have the right colour blooms for all the cards and so I changed their colours with my copics - worked quite well!

Thanks for looking.

Copic colour challenge

I finally get the enter the Copic Colour Challenge again! :)

their colours this time are:

BV00 - tick - (just realised I used this on a different pixie... will show her tomorrow)
G00 - tick
RV02 - don't have that one...
so I used RV04 minimally (along with the colourless blender) + used a pink whisper pen on top.
I also used a couple of skin tone colours + yellows for the hair. Here is my card:

I used one of the adorable little pixie downloads available from Charmed Cards and Crafts!
Ain't she lovely?

And whilst on the subject of Pixies I thought I'd show you my first card using these gorgeous images, so here it is (made for my sister and sent via air-mail)

You can get your own pixies HERE!
