Primary Colours

Good morning folks, hope you all had a good weekend. I had a fabulous day yesterday dodging showers to watch all the wonderful demonstrators at The Craft Barn Extravaganza and particularly enjoyed watching Jean Hardy (and having a chat with the lovely Malcolm about Brighton), Lindsay Mason, Leandra Franich and Andy Skinner. I also met up with Claire (Happy Days) from the Polka Doodles DT and Alison (craftytrog) which was really lovely. Apologies to Helen Chilton too as I was going back to watch her demo when she was less busy but ran out of time!
As it's Monday and also July, we have a new monthly theme for the challenges over at Make My Monday and chosen by Mynnette the overall theme is the Colour Wheel. This week the challenge is to use Primary Colours, Red, Yellow and Blue. Here's what I made:

The flower is from a Hero Arts set and I stamped it repeatedly on white card to build up a floral scene - I was thinking meadow here in case you're wondering. I then coloured them with various yellow Promarkers and sponged on Stormy Sky Distress ink.
I stamped the B Line Designs butterfly with black and coloured this with red Promarkers then cut it out.
I assembled the simple card as you see adding a sentiment on a red card mat.

Here's Mynnette's first colour wheel interpretation above.

We are lucky enough to be sponsored this month by Priyanka of My Heart Pieces who is offering a prize of 3 digis of choice to the monthly winner. She has generously given the Design Team some gorgeous images to work with and my creation for next week will feature one of these.

Challenges for my card:
Dream Valley Challenges - Things With Wings
Dutch Dare Card Challenges - Flutterby Butterfly

Have a great day.
Hugs, Fliss xx
