MMM Colour Challenge

June and Associated Events is the theme at Make My Monday , which event starts today? ... Wimbledon of course , with strawberries and cream... you've guessed it our colour theme is
Red White/Cream and Green
This is my interpretation
The gorgeous poppy image is a stamp designed and made by Jacqueline the owner of the MMM challenge blog. The images are coloured with Derwent Inktense water colour pencils... I just love em :o). I stamped directly onto a water colour postcard with Versafine Onyx Black. All the other images are from the Pink Paislee spring jubilee set...another favourite.  I sponged  DI Shabby Shutters onto the postcard.

I've been dying to have a go with these Postcards but wasn't quite sure what to do... but I'm reasonably pleased how this turned out  :o)

The buttetrfly above has been decoupaged... the R side of the butterfly stamped onto the base card is under the main image.. if you see what I mean
is there such a thing as a red and green butterfly? lol.

There was some amazing entries in last weeks Midsummer Night/ Fairy theme... which made the task of choosing the top three very difficult. Thank you to all of you for joining in and having some fun with fairies.

 I'm out for the day with three of my friends, fingers crossed the weather stays reasonable cos we're going to Barmouth North Wales about a two hour drive away... I'm the driver lol. I will be showing them some interesting places along the way and ending up at the Mawddach Estuary which we will cross via the railway/footpath bridge into the seaside town of Barmouth where no doubt it will be fish and chips on the sand dunes... yummy

Enjoy your week

Of course it has to be poppies for the red (if it isn't strawberries) - love this whole card including your new butterfly species! Have a great day out and hope the weather is kind to you.
