Late for my own challenge, again!

 It's Quirky Reminder time again, or it was yesterday. I am getting back to normal crafting slowly. We have three sponsors for this challenge, Sweet Pea, Jiggery Makery and Digital Delights, and the challenge is about girls using only two main colours.

My first card is using a digi called  Fairy on a Stool by Sal Scheibe from Sweet Pea Stamps, she is so pretty and modern at the same time. I just bought myself a set of Chameleon Pens from someone selling them still sealed at a price too good to miss, and I just saw the post when it went out or I am sure they would have been gone.
Getting used to colouring with them will take a little while I think, I have to work in a different way on small areas, and I need to keep lightening the colours for something like the grey shadow round the image.
Papers are DCWV and Papermania, buttons are Papermania, and ribbon from stash. Flowers are by Samaflora - aren't they gorgeous!

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - 2 x 2 (2 papers) (Tues)
Inspiration Destination - #55 anything goes (Wed)
A Gem of a Challenge - spots or stripes (Sat)
The Ribbon Girls - pastels (Sun)
Creative Card Crew - ribbon (27th Oct)

My second card and this time the digi is  Zoimar Lezama's Kitty Queen from Sweet Pea Stamps. Again coloured with Chameleons, I had a bit of trouble with her nose, tried to make some tiny adjustments the day after I coloured her and it ended up worse, so now she looks a bit flushed! I think I should have trimmed round her boots - it is too late now!
The paper is My Mind's Eye - chalkboard pad, and the sentiment stamp and die are by Whimsy. I coloured the stamp with Marvy Wet Looks so I could make it two colours, the pink and black of course. It is the first time I have used this stamp set and matching die, and it won't be the last (maybe I should have added a C in front of attitude).

Challenges entered with this card:
Digi Chooseday - sentimental 
Addicted to stamps - anything goes (Wed)
Little Miss Muffet - anything goes (Thurs)
Allsorts - Sentimental (Sun)
Love to Scrap - anything goes (Mon)
Vintage Stamping challenge - use a die cut (9th Nov)

Hop on over to Quirky Crafts to join in with your girl makes with two colours, and to see some other great examples from the team.

  3. Very cool card! She is definitely full of attitude and your coloring is fabulous (didn't even notice the nose until you mentioned it.) Love that chalkboard paper, too. Thanks for playing with LTSCB.
