Triatic Colour Challenge Card

Hi to all you budding Crafty makers

My Card for the Design team over at www.craftycardmakers.blogspot is all about the colour wheel, pop over and take a look.

This Fortnights challenge is using three colours, well mine are Yellow, Red and Blue (Triatic)

My image came from - I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. I used Yellow, Red and a touch of Blue inkadinks mixing them together to get a brown and an orange.

First I made the background paper that she is laying on using inkadinks from, take a look at there inks and pigments, i use them so much and have just aquired the vintage set, so lush.

I then stamped out loads of butterflys and coloured them using the same colours but added the mica pigments. I have used tim holtz butterflys grungeboard and folded them together to make a bit of dimesion to them. I sat the little butterfly on a handmade flower. I have used distress inks to give it more of a grunge look. I love this card and it shows how far Ive come from all that i have learned.


For this challenge it is important you read the COLOUR THEORY tutorial as its not an own choice of colour.

Our challenge this fortnight is to use a Tricolour scheme on your creation based on the following colour schemes.


Split Complimentary


I have also been blog hopping and found some lovely challenges for this to go into - Double up

(use two images, well I have used the Fairy and the butterfly stamped in the backgroud on this card) - Distress inks - Around edges - Insects - I have Butterflies - Create a little something - Anything goes - Use a machine - I used my heat gun lots - Distress - I have distressed this so so much lol touch of spring, butterflies, warm - I think i cover this - Girls - I have a girlie fairy

Thanks for looking everyone and big thanks for any comments left xx
