Do Not Colour Without Daylight

No special story to go with this card, but it is the joy of making something, I assume ;) Of course I always find something anyhow...

1. I have 134 different Prismacolors to choose from (2 pencils are of those discontinued colours) and I was struggling a bit to match TEAL. Should I contact Sanford or would it be enough just to find the reason in the mirror? ;) Heheh!

2. Sky went all pear shaped, solution was easy thou, I cut the image out, hah! 

3. Can I please blame the scanner image looking more blue than purple!

I love those buttons and sentiment and layout and backing paper and to be honest, I like this card alot. No idea why. ;)

Cardstock - Last couple of weeks I've been cutting A4 -> 6 x 6, more room to play with!
Digi - Digi Doodles
Pencils - Prismacolors
Blending with Johnson Baby Oil and a stump
Staedtler 3000 Duo was used distressing the edges
BP - Free gift from somewhere
Die Cut Buttons are Joy Crafts
Die Cut Lace is Nellie's
organza ribbon is from stash
Sentiment - TLC

Challenges for this card?
Phindy's Place - Purple and Teal

PS. There are 72 Prismacolors on the desk and rest in a big tin. By the way, mug tree is an excellent cutting die tree! Oh, and there is the image after cutting the sky out.

I'm working on getting good pencil holders and this is a start.


  1. Annemaritta (I didn't goof this time - LOL) your card is beautiful. I love pansies. I took a few pictures of some that my sister-in-law gave us and I'm hoping to do a better job coloring mine. Your coloring is awesome and the backing papers are great! Hugs, dj1952

    P.S. Did you notice you can win free candy from me? I have one set for new followers, and one for current followers.

  2. Very Annemartta! I think your teal looks great! Pretty colors and love how you did the bow! Great idea for the diecuts too!

  6. Really beautiful image, beautifully coloured. What is teal anyway....everyone, everywhere seems to have a different teal - I prefer this aqua type of teal that all seem to be using now, very pretty with purple isn't it. Love the card. Hugs lin
