Genevieve an a New Challenge Blog

Morning Peeps,

Oh I went to see Harry Potter last night with my son, and wow has 3D come on since I last saw it in my plastic pink and blue glasses, lol.  Technology hey, now I'm feeling my age.

It's time for another challenge at Make It Colourful and I have teamed my MIC background image, well two actually, I used the Moon and Bats from the Eerie scene and paired it with the Crooked Fence and added the beautiful Hannah Lynn Genevieve from Crafts and Me.  The challenge theme is to colour with with colours other than the usual, browns, blondes, blacks etc.  So out come the purples.....

 The sewing machine popped out again to stitch the panels.  The swirly corners are those fabulous Lasercut Chipboard embellishements from Make It Crafty and also available here in the UK from Quixotic Paperie.

Here's a pic of the Eerie Scene and Crooked Fence available from Make It Crafty.  I masked the moon and then used my airbrush to create the background using the Cool Greys and Lilac's.

Before I go I wanted to put the word out that my teamie Amy is starting a new challenge blog where you can show off your Marianne Designs Dies, woo hoo.  Click on the picture below to take you there.
