New Colour challenge

This week's colour challenge was quite tricky, off white, 2 shades of green and a buttercup yellow.
I've used papers from 2 Kaisercraft 6x6's, Lil Primrose and Sweet Nothings. The bird and cage are Tim Holtz movers and shapers, the larger leaves are MS punch as is the border, the roses are from the Spellbinders Rose Creations (using 3 different methods with the one die which gives 3 different looking roses ). Once again I have colour matched in Photoshop to print out some of the correct greens onto paper and punched my leaves from that. Cardstock is Stampin' Up, the quote is from Quietfire Design. This will go on the Color Room challenge 94 and Anything Goes at Bizzy Becs.

Gorjuss card

I love these Gorjuss stamps that I purchased from BizzyBec and have used one on this card. After seeing a video on youtube of a person doing a 3d image from a stamp I had to give it a go. I've done it with flowers before but not a figure. The colour palette is from the Color Room challenge for this week. I've coloured her using Prismacolor pencils which I've blended using the Copic blender pen, adding multiple layers and blending each time . The necklace is highlighed with liquid pearls
BizzyBec's challenge is Anything Goes so it will go there too! I've used Bazzil cardstock, distressing the white layer. The paper is Magnolia. The large flower and ribbon are from Spotlight. The small flowers are from Kaisercraft. The butterflies and leaves were printed on copy paper using the color codes to match the palette and punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

Color Room Challenge #91 Autumn 2011

I've joined The Color Room to give me some inspiration in my scrapbooking (see blinkie on the sidebar), but the first layout I have done has turned out to be digital. In the heat of the last few days it was all I could manage and only in short spans as the computer room was stifling.
I've used the following products in this layout,
papers-Charlize Creations-Falling into You and Lost in Autumn
stitches,ribbon,small flowers from the same kits.
paint splashes-Watery Spots,- Katie Pertiet
worn paper edge-Worn page edges no 05-Lynn
painted paper edge-Edge Overlays no 02-Katie
I added the painted edge to the first layer and clipped the second layer to the worn paper edge.
I created strips of papers from the kits and altered the colours in some to match the palette uing PSE 8. I've then added stitching and drop shadows. I've created the photo frames from shapes in the Shabby Princess Scalloped Shapes and More set, clipped papers to them and layered them over my photo's. I added paint splashes via the brushes and adjusted the opacity for realism.
The ribbon and flowers have also been colour matched.
For the layout I have rotated the sketch and modified slightly to suit my elements.
