Welcome to the GDP #121 Colour Challenge for this week. Just sneaking in under the wire. Do you ever have one of those days when you have a whole lot planned and hardly any get completed? That was me yesterday. I managed to get to projects made but alas finished this one too late to photograph. So, I decided to do the blog post and wait for the sun to shine for the photography.

So this week’s GDP #121 Colour Challenge is a colour one. I had to do some thinking and then some tweaking of my original idea but I like what I’ve made having said that. Here’s the colour swatch:

Now the sun is made using Peekaboo Peach and a 1″ Circle Punch which I punched out of a Post It Note and applied the Post It Note with the hole in it to the card front. Then I used a Sponge Dauber and Peekaboo Peach to create an image resembling the sun.

The birds are stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink and coloured using Peekaboo Peach and a Blender Pen.

I used an Aqua Painter and Bermuda Bay ink to create a wash for the background. This is all done on Shimmery White Card. Then the flowers are stamped in Bermuda Bay and Sweet Sugarplum and coloured with the same ink using a Blender Pen.
