My Favourite Colours

Its hard for me to say what my favourite colour is, my husband always tells me I wear brown to often.. but I am an earth toned lover and lets face it, brown is definitely an earth tone.  Since a young age however I have loved Aqua or Teal, something about that colour really makes me happy.  I wore Teal to my year 12 formal and it was the colour of my bridemaid dress at my wedding.  And Teal goes perfectly with pink.  If we are talking clothing.. i rarely wear pink but I certainly do like to colour with it!

Here is my work in progress of my entry to TeddyBo, Your favourite colour.  I am taking my time with both this blog post and also the project itself.. something about these images really make me want to slow down and enjoy the process.

I am using my Express it cardstock for this image, I had been storing it away as its quite expensive, but now that the copic 2 course has started on  Get It Scrapped, I was reminded that it really is great card stock for copics... Im not sure if this image shows you how vibrant the colours are on the express it card stock, but sitting in front of me, the colours are popping off the page.

 And these are the colours I have used.   I was putting them aside as I worked and was very
surprised to see how many ended up being used.

Now for the next part of my little project.... what layout will make this image be the focus....
lucky I have the whole day to play, my kids have just woken up and its past midday... aren't school holidays just grand!

and here is my finished card, im struggling lately trying to figure out if i should put more on a card.. or just keep it simple.  I did cut some very find swirls to pop under the flowers and I coloured the flowers with the pinks and teals that I used in colouring the image.   I used my Blackcat Cougar to cut the swirls and im so impressed.  They are 1.5mm wide which in my book is very finely cut..

Im pleased with the final outcome of this card,unfortuantly I know a few people that are going to need get well cards, so im storing up a few, its nice to know that this may cheer someone up, even if just a little bit xoxo
