Colouring Skies - Make It Colourful DT

Wow its the weekend and I.m soo hoping the weather stays as nice as its been all week, but have you noticed that whilst your at work the weather is gorgeous and come the weekend it turns rubbish!!!!!! Oh well fingers crossed, but hopefully if blogger posts this properly I will be in the mad stampede at the Ally Pally stamp show.

Today we have a new challenge for you at Make it Colourful and we want to see Coloured Skies, this can be in any way you fancy, I have used Broken China distress Inks and torn paper for a soft look, but you can get out your copics (my oh so talented teamie Annika fondly known as Niks has done a fabulous tutorial for copic skies) or you may like pencils or water colours, the choice is yours and we cant wait to see what you come up with.

For my card I have used the Kissing Booth from the carnival collection at Make it Crafty. I teamed it with the Magnolia stamp Brotherly Love.

This was the card that I was going to do for last weeks cxhallenge till I printed over my coloured image lol.

Hopefully you can see the sky a little better in this pic, I love the effect that you get from this technique but it doesnt show up too well cos the card is pearlescent and the light keeps bouncing back, but I think you can just about get the idea.
The sentiment is from one of the Patchwork Polly sets.
