Everybody Art Challenge No. 75 - Blue/Brown/White

This week over at Everybody Art Challenge is a colour theme. The challenge is to use blue, brown and white. I have made my card for my Nephew who celebrated his 18th Birthday recently. Once again I have used a Mo Manning image, I just love them because there is always an image that fits perfectly for my project. To make this card I have used papers from various K&Co paper pads, these being, Ancestry & Life's Journey both pads. I wanted the card to appear worn so to create this effect I ripped, curled and distressed the edges with ink. The image was coloured with Copics and the background with distress inks. The effect behind the image was created by embossing a blue piece of Bazzill card with a Cuttlebug circle folder. I then swiped two ink pads over the top (Ranger Vintage Photo & Dew Drop Silver). To highlight the circles I used a white gel pen. For the "18 Today" I have used Sizzix alphabet "Fruit Smoothie" To finish I added a ribbon, charm and a word sticker. If you get time please play along with this week's challenge over at Everybody Art Challenge. I will enjoy visiting your blog to see what beautiful artwork you come up with. Thanks for looking. Jenny
