Say it with…Lime, Mango and Orange

Welcome to this week’s colour challenge at AnnaBelle Stamps. They are such bright, happy and summery colours don’t you think? Quite fitting for the warm breezy spring days that we have been having lately.

I made this mini card (7.5cm by 11cm) by first drawing a grid with lead pencil. I then stamped the small butterfly image from the Whimsy Flowers set repeatedly using the grid as a guide. When all the butterflies were stamped I coloured in the negative space around the images with 3 shades of Copic markers. I finished off the card by going over the grid lines with a felt pen and ruler. The result was a rather colourful and graphic looking pattern.

I have created this card for the Repetition Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
