Cute Card Thursday 'Primary Colours' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday is to use primary colours on your card. I think my card might just about be ok as I have used mainly red, a little blue on the flower and Edwin's jeans and there is a tiny bit of yellow on the flame in the lantern!!
To make the little scene I stamped Edwin With Christmas Lantern onto the the label which I cut using the Story Book Cartridge and the Cricut. I then masked Edwin and stamped the Winter Fence so it looks like it is in the background. I coloured the image with Distress Inks and added some Glimmer Mist to Edwin's wings and Glamour Dust for some sparkle. The flowers and swirls are cut with EK Success punches and the pine branch is from McGill. I am really enjoying colouring with Distress Inks, although I'm sure the Copics will reappear again soon!
Have a good Thursday!

Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Edwin With Christmas Lantern, Winter Fence, Hero Arts - Sentiment
Tools: Distress Inks, Glimmer Mist, Glamour Dust, EK Success and Mc Gill Punches, Button, Twine, Cricut, Story Book Cart
DP: MME, Basic Grey, Bazzill
