Colour Create Challenge week 13

This weeks challenge over at the Colour Create challenge blog is to make a card using the colours brown, orange and green.

Now I have a cheated a little and made two, the reason being is that the teacher in the school where I work asked if I would be interested in making cards with the children in the art club which is held at lunchtimes. I thought we could begin with a theme and as Fathers day is around the corner, that's what we'll be making. So I needed something pretty straightforward for the children to be able to use as a guide and this is what I've come up with, don't it seam strange making cards with no patterned paper. I bought a few Jolly Nation stamps last week simply because they had some ok ones for the guys in our lives. I've used Cuttlebug embossing folders and the sentiment is computer generated.
I've coloured the images with Copics, for this card I stamped the "gone fishin" stamp to back a background, cut out some of the lil fish and stuck them onto the Tulle, again sentiment is computer generated.
Hey, get me two posts in one day....can you tell it's my day off...lol!!! Full day at work tomorrow though.......oooooo. I'm gonna try and do some blog hopping later as I've been an awful blogging buddy to you girlies, for which I do apologise. Thanks for popping by, ttfn xx vicki xx
