Spring Colours at Fab'n'Funky

Hello, I'm back again with my second post today, this time for

Our lovely hostess Jackie would like to see Spring Colours on your creations.

Our fabulous sponsor this week is

The sassy image I've used is called Troublemaker  and has been coloured with Copics.  
In the past, pink and blue were my go-to-colours for this cutie but this time I challenged myself by stepping out of my comfort zone and colouring yellow.
The mix was Y32, Y35 and a small amount of YR24.
The gorgeous corners are cut using my new Spellbinder Gold Elements One die.
It was right after cutting the first two elements that I noticed the handle of my Grand Calibur did not have the same tension as before so I'm thinking these are the culprits.
 I did manage to cut the second corner with several passes thru my Big Shot...phew!


Flowers - WOC
Ribbon from Fabricland
Brad - Basic Grey
Leaves - SU
Die-namics die used under sentiment
DP - MM Fresh Anthology Collection - Sydney

Pat your colouring is phenominal. Love this image, and the little sparkle detail. A wonderfully designed card, a complete delight.

Donna Ellis said...

oooooo! Those new dies look wonderful, Pat (but I thank you for the warning). I think I chose not to purchase the gold dies because a different sandwich was needed for them. You probably already know that. They certainly are gorgeous, as is your card. A beautiful creation, darling colors on the image, and wonderful design elements in your easel card!

Gorgeous card Pat. Perfect colouring and fabulous layout and design. The siame thing happened with my Grand Caliber. If you open it up you will find a screw has come out, I did manage to get it back in, but it worked loose again. Then I invested in an Ebosser (no handle ;) )
