Orange, Chocolate, Strawberry and Vanilla



Challenges:
I Love Promarkers – stripes

KaboodleDoodles – celebrate summer

CraftyCatz- digital

DigiDoodle – anything goes

Mo's Digital – anything goes.

Well, I do have a weakness for Mo’s images. So here is another and a recent addition to her range. The image is called ‘Brady and Chloe’ and the girl’s sweet little outfit seemed to lend itself to the theme of ‘Stripes’ but being a sucker for punishment, I then drew myself more stripes onto Brady’s shirt before colouring everything in - with my Promarkers of course. Whilst I didn’t go overboard and ‘funky them up’ by putting coloured stripes into their hair, I hope I had added to the stripey theme by putting loads of highlights into their locks – well, it’s a bit stripey! LOL.

The colours I chose came from the choice of paper from MyGrafico which were just right (not to mention stripey!) for what I was thinking of. Maybe the colour-scheme felt right because it was hot I wanted and ice-cream, but it kind of suited the pair of them I think. I created the circular sentiment on the computer but it had the stripey treatment too, with the added outline. The lovely striped ribbon was from my stash and it is next to a strip of card to form stripes in the opposite direction. I then added the 2 gems, which in a row, form their own mini stripe! Maybe a dotty card will cure me as I am now seeing stripes everywhere.

That’s all for this card. I would love it if you could find the time to comment.
