St. Patrick's Day's Coming

Hello! Hope you are all well?

Today is a new Colour Challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog :o)
Our Design Team member, ANGELA, wanted us to use GREEN this month.

Here is her picture:
Doesn't that look nice and fresh?

I just loved it, but wasn't able to do it justice I am afraid.
My problem was paper. Nothing really to work with so had to go a little bit different and on the way my work got much darker than I had intended :o(
Oh well - another time I hope to do better.

My images today are from Diana's store. Edwin with Hat# 153, Tilda with Clover and Hat with Shamrock - neither of which I can find at the moment - sorry about that. I will keep looking and update when I find them.
Here is the front of my card:
As you can see the shading around Tilda ended up very dark and not the way I wanted it to be. Also her clothes had to match the paper and I don't have the correct Copic Colours to that justice either.

Here is Tilda a bit closer:

Here is the inside of my card which I am much happier with:

and a closer one of Edwin:
I am slowly learning how to colour pleats and folds - S L O W L Y :o)

I need much more practice and hope that in the next month or so I will have a lot more time to make cards and you will see a big increase of work on my blog.
At least, that's the plan!!

Please take the trip to Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog and see the beautiful cards made by the rest of the Design Team. They will never let you down that's for sure!

Remember if you enter the challenge, that you could win a Gift Certificate in the amount of $25.00 at Diana's Store and add to your collection of Magnolia Stamps
