Blue and Brown.

Colour Create challenge #5 is to make a brown and blue card. This is a very simple card that I made a couple of weeks back that I think fits the bill. The paper panel is from a Dovecraft Masculine pack and the image is mounted onto some mirror board which is embossed with stars to pick up on the paper. The base card is not as plain as it appears here because it has a fine 'cord' texture which the photo does not really pick up. The image is from a Personal Impressions clear set and I have coloured it with watercolour pencils which I love because they are so controllable for shading. I gave him some grubby patches like a real mechanic!

What a brilliant male card Alison. Adding those mechanic's grubby patches was a superb idea. Thanks for joining the Colour Create Challenge.
