Primary Colours

I just had to show you one of the images I purchased using a certificate I won from Denise over at Stamping Vacation when we did the blog hop.  Yes, the Dream Team had a little challenge too in the background and I was lucky enough to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Michelle's Scrapbooking and More.
I opted for some Digital Images to save on the hassles of posting to Australia.  So I now have 8 new Pixie Cottage Digital Stamps in my collection. :-)  Today I have used Mike on Trike by Artish. Isn't he cute.

To start this card I have used the sketch from this months Sketch Therapy challenge at Stamping Vacation.
The colours were decided by the Weekly Inspiration Challenge over at Craftmad which is to use Primary Colours (Red, Blue and Yellow).

I started with a white BE card then started digging through my stash.  The blue background paper I have had for ages and no idea where it has come from.  I used my Herringbone embossing folder on the red card. Cut a yellow circle with my Spellbinder.  Next coloured this fun image with my watercolour pencils and aquabrush.  Finished with a rub on and a bow of string.

Be sure to follow me over and enter into some of the Stamping Vacation challenges.  Remember there is a different one set for each day of the month.  You can enter as many challenges as many times as you like.  All your entries go into the running for the monthly prize. 

This time I will get the prize right......I have only been telling you half of the prize. Oops!!!
