Quick Double Challenge Post – Chicken Car

Thought I’d throw this post up quick so I can link it to a challenge site. The first challenge is Flourishes colour challenge, use dark red, olive green, chocolate and cream. The other is Flourishes Sketch Challenge by Silke Ledlow. It is 11:28 and the challenge ends at 12MN so I’ll write more later.

Edited to add: Finally I have time to get to finishing this post! I hope you like my colouring on the chicken car! I worked for over an hour on it. Unfortunately, my haste in posting this card means I forgot to add some highlights with a white gel pen. Ooops, I’ll have to add that later. The olive paper I had looked too bright so I sponged it and used SU! rough wheel on it to subdue it. The ribbon through the hardware buckle is actually the BACK of May Arts corduroy ribbon. Thanks to Sandra for this fabulous image!! I loved hers so much I shamelessly BEGGED for a couple images! She stamped it on white but because the challenge called for cream, chocolate, dark red and (optional) olive, I very lightly sponged Antique Linen Distress ink over the white to darken it slightly.

The colour challenge was actually on the Colour Throwdown blog, and was SPONSORED by Flourishes. Sorry! I obviously turned the sketch 90 degrees too in case you were wondering.

Enjoy, Rebecca
