#221 Explosion of Colour

Angela is hosting our challenge today, Explosion of Colour

As usual anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the Explosion of Colour theme.

Some inspiration from our fabulous DT


Nothing explodes more than colour mounted onto black card. The background was made using a stencil and 3D gel to which I added Pixie Powders. The squares and leaf were cut using Sizzix dies and the dots were applied with white and black pens. I look forward to visiting you all and seeing what you come up with.


I used a Fiskars piercing template and machine embroidery thread to make this, and framed it in black using a Tonic die for added decoration. And I'm keeping it to put on the wall of my craft room!


I used a David Wolverson flower decoupage sheet from Joanna Sheen. I matted and layered it and three different card onto white card and added a bow made using three strips of ribbon recycled from garments.


I cut a piece of watercolour card to fit my tag and used Distress Inks for the colourful background. I then dabbed gesso through a floral stencil and added some stamping. A floral cluster by Little Birdie, a leftover scrap from a diecut, some prills, microbeads and a pretty bow and my tag was done!!


To create this card I used Brusho on glossy card stock. I first stamped my card stock with several background stamps from my collection before I added the Brusho colours of purple and turquoise. To complete the card I added two laced butterflies that I also added Brusho colour to. My final touch was adding some white pearls and lace.


Used a clear stamp from Inkadinkado titled Birds Galore, coloured with Copics and decorated with hand punched flowers. The leaves were die cut.


I used Copic refill colours on Yupo paper to create the background and added this beautiful butterfly by Stampin Up to it.


I chose to decoupage this challenge, I wanted the explosion of colour to be the focus so used a topper sheet building up the layers with foam pads to showcase those gorgeous poppies.


I created this card using one of Jane Gill's lovely floral designs. The central panel has been created with white embossing and colourful distress inks to give my Explosion of colour.


For my Explosion of Colours card I used lots of Distress Inks flicked the colours with a Brush onto card then added stamps that came free with a magazine.

My card is an exploding box card for a friend's son, who was 10. He likes gaming, so I took pictures of the characters and included them in the box.
