Double Challenge Card .........


Hi everyone, I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. This card is for two challenges, the first is for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge and their theme this week is to use the colours purple and green. I really enjoyed using these colours as they are not what I would think of putting together but I think they work really well. The second challenge this card is for is a sketch challenge by the very talented Mumur of France from Friday Sketchers.

I used a mixture of mediums to colour this card, I used Promarkers for the skin, H20's for the clothes and umbrella and chalks for the background.
Well I better go as Grace is going to her friend's birthday party at lunchtime and I need to get organised!

Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment if you have time as they are always appreciated.

Hugs Lynsey:)

Materials:
Image stamp - Whiff of JOy
Papers - K & Co
Scroll Die Cut - Sizzix
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
Flowers and Ribbon from stash
