Bloomtangled birthday

Stamplorations are launching a new colouring book for crafters. There is a blog hop and linky party and a sampler page to download. 
I found time to print the page so I was keen to see what I could do with it. A wet afternoon gave me the perfect excuse for some colouring. 
Which colours to choose? Less is More had the answer:

A delicious combination. 

 I coloured using promarkers. I have a few but they are an underused area of my stash. I tried to add some shading but with my limited colouring skills I'm not sure it has made much difference. The black lines are nice and thick to there is little chance of running over and it was very pleasing to colour. 
I cut a square and then a strip for the edge. To finish I die cut Happy Birthday from an off-cut. 

I had a lime green gem so I added that and then a brush of Wink of Stella over a few places. 
I hope you like it, I love the colours and I have a bit left for another card. 
Thanks for visiting and Enjoy the Day. x


  1. What a striking design, Alison, love the design. xx

  2. Great card. It'll make somebody realy happy with these bright colors. Have a nice day, Ankie

  3. Wonderful card, Alison. Your colouring is bold and beautiful. Love the design and how even your die cut sentiment coordinates. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More. :) Trina

  4. Striking use of the LIM challenge colours, super make


  5. A very vivid, bright and bold statement, the colours are lush together and make for a very striking card Alison. It reminds me of very expensive fabric, love it x

  6. A lovely design in these colours. I like the vertical strip and the co-ordinating sentiment too.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

  7. Dramatic, striking and oh-so- eye-catching Alison. Those colours look dazzling in that beautifully coloured panel and matching thin strip. Great use of the pattern in the sentiment too. This is one well co-ordinated card xx

  8. Gosh this looks so effective. I love the colours you have chosen. Love the strip down the side of the card and how you have cut the sentiment from the pattern as well. Hugs Mrs A.

  9. What a great colour combination this is. A really lovely card Alison. Barbxx
