Make It Colourful Challenge - Blend Blues and Purples

We have a fabulous collection of "color-ers" on the new Make It Colourful Design Team.  Zoe, our amazing leader, has issued a challenge to blend Blue and Purple.  And this week we have a second sponsor, Karen's Doodles so be sure to join in on the challenge for a chance to win lots of great prizes. 


For my card, I began with Karen's Doodles Rosie Dance, gotta love this full figure gal! Then for the background I chose Make It Crafty's Whimsical Log , combining them in Adobe Photoshop Elements.  I added a gradient background from blue to green before printing it onto Beckett Expressions Radiance white paper with my inkjet printer.  I did two different blue to purple blends; the large flower uses blues: B00, B01,  blended with purples: BV00; Rosie's dress uses blues :B0000, B000 blended with purples: BV000, BV00.  For the rest of the scene, Copics used:
Tree - E42, E43
Rosie - W00, W1, W3, R20
Grass, leaves and stems - G40, G21, G24
Mushrooms - E53, E55
Rocks - E70
Flower stamen - Y17
The sentiment is computer generated.  Finished size is 6" square.

Be sure to stop by the Make It Colourful website to see all the other amazing creations from our team.  We really do have the best "color-ers" on the Web.

This is fabulous and your coloring really shows off the blending nicely! I like how it's blue then turns into purple. And the pairing of these two images is fun... that's one big tree or one tiny elephant. ;D This is a fabulous card - love it! :D
