Catch the Bug July Color Challenge



Good morning! We have a Color Challenge for you this Saturday at Catch the Bug...it's bright and summery...love it! Here it is:


Instead of going with patterned paper, I decided to go all white to keep the focus on the image and the colors. I like how it turned out! I've used pencils to color the chick and liberally accented her with glitter. I've matted her with die cuts; the "pinked" edge die cut is textured vellum, like the band. I think the white on white is elegant and a fun change of pace. Card sketch is from Paper Play Sketches. Here's a close-up:
