Brown and Blue


Wow, 3 posts in one day, that has to be some kind of record for me!

I made this card for the Michelle Perkett colour challenge with one of her images from her esty shop. The theme (or colour) is brown and blue. It was fun figuring out how to best use the colours with the image I wanted to use. I coloured the image with promarkers and used Pink Petticoat papers for the background.

I love using PP digital paper because you can print out the colour palette and then match up the paper you want to your project. I never though I would use digital papers half as much as I do, I always thought they were a waste of my precious printer ink. But now I love using them. When I can't always find exactly what I want in my DP paper stash and having a good range of digital papers is really helpful.
