LCI Colour wheel challenge!


Time for another challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink challenge blog and this week we were really challenged by our lovely guest designer Caz. She presented us with a colour wheel and told us to use the opposite of our favourite colour. Well everybody and their granny knows I love pink so my opposite turned out to be lime green!! I was stumped for a little while then found this lovely lime green butterfly ribbon and I was off with a kick start and this is what I came up with!

Image - Cupcake Ruby which you can buy here
Papers - DCWV
Embellishments - flower brads, ms punch, butterfly ribbon, Anna Griffin butterfly punch, glitter
Medium - promarkers
Sentiment - SeeD stamps

I did cheat and add a little bit of pink to the hem of her skirt and gave her nice little pink boots:)
I hope you are all up for this challenge, it was great fun and definitely makes you think about the colours you always reach for lol.

I would like to enter this into
I Love Promarkers - anything goes with sparkle
Inktegrity design team - anything goes
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes with birthday wishes
Bee Crafty's Card Challenge - followed their sketch but missed the deadline
