Make It Colourful GDT Card i would like to share the second of my GDT cards for Make it Colourful  and this week we have a real challenge for you..we want you to "colour an object that looks wet" this has to be done with your colouring rather than for instance glossy accents..but don't be too afraid... if you pop by to see the rest of the DT's work there is plenty of inspiration 

now I've added water droplets to my's the first time I've attempted anything like this but I'm rather pleased with the results and glad I gave it a go :0)

here's what it looked like before I added them...

so what did i use??....

image MIC - Metallic Flowers Digi  merged with Tiddly Inks - Tanker Fairy Sits ..MIC Gears Galore Chippies which i got from Quixotic Paperie - the silver one is coloured with TH Crackle Paint - Pewter and the Brown is Walnut Distress Ink and Crackle Accents..papers are MME and ribbon is from my stash :0)...i quite often get asked about what colour PM's i use so i made an effort to write them down :0)...
Warm Grey 1-5, Olive Green, Marsh Green, Pear Green, Denim Blue, Duck Egg, Grey Green, Tea Green, Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Dusky Rose, Putty, Almond, Burnt Sienna, Cocoa, Caramel, Tan, Raw Sienna, Gold, Mustard and Pale Yellow :0)..

i really hope you'll challenge yourselves and give it a go too....

have a fab weekend

  1. Debs, your water drops are just beautiful! such a hard challenge and I struggled with this but you look a complete natural with it. I like how the dew drops give the metallic flowers a freshness and look so pretty. CoB

  2. Deb's you totally blow me away....What an truly awesome job you did for this challenge....I am green with envy looking at how natural those droplet's look.
