Going Shopping

I think you need to put your shades on to view this ones Ladies!!! I have to say I'm really terrible at matching colours. What I think looks ok, other people think is terrible. Maybe I'm colour blind and dont know it. Ha ha. When I used to go to cardmaking classes at our local store, the teacher would tell us all to pick papers that we thought would look nice on the project we were doing. I'd pick, she'd say "mmmmmmmmmmmm", then I'd hear her go around the rest of the group saying "beautiful, lovely, perfect".....  Seriously though, picking beautiful colours that go together is just so hard for me. I think this card falls into the mmmmmmmmmmmm category. Still, i had fun making it. Thats what matters, hey? It also looks like its on a slant but its actually my photograpic skills. Nil, I'm afraid. Not much I can tell you about this one. I made the tree with the stampin up punch, cut once in green and once in red, then punched with a circle punch to look like apples. Coloured tilda with copics. Hand cut the house and used the Martha Stewart fence punch. Thats it for now. Have a great day.


  1. Actually, the way you made the tree is very inventive. i can see many dots. That is matchy matchy. I wouldn't reject the card. I like all the little flowers.

  2. Hi Lorraine, I think it fits into the adorable category, I love bright colours (a challenge for me is to use pastel or muted colours) A fabulous scene card and beautifully coloured. Thanks for sharing

  3. Lorraine, you're doing terrific. Beautiful scene card. Bright colours are a challenge for me too, but this is wonderful. Adorable Tilda, beautifully coloured. How creative of you for using a scallop circle for the tree with the punched out circles for the fruits. Terrific job.


  4. And I'm amused to watch your card, what a pleasure! What joy! It makes me happy inside!
    Thank you for share.

  5. I think your colors are great! Your card and details are terrific. I had always found color choices a challenge too - until I started using the copic color wheel. It really make make matching colors so easy for you! It is available on their website. Hugs, Laurel
