Dark, Light and Don’t be a Square

Well it’s time for another Quirky Crafts Challenge. This time the rules are to use one dark colour and one light colour (that isn’t white) as your main colour scheme, and avoid anything square or rectangle. You can have other colours in the focal image, but other than that, stick to your simple colour scheme! To see the fab Guest Designer/Design Team Creations, click here.

This is what I came up with for this challenge:


I started off by fingerpainting the back ground (I used two shades of blue and an irridescent purple to make this smudgy indigo colour). Then I glued on the image (Starry Eyed from Stitchy Bear) which was coloured using Prismacolor pencils. I added some doodly bits and text with a silver gel pen (you can’t read it too well on this photo but it’s some Madonna lyrics: ‘Never forget who you are, little star. Never forget how to dream’).

If you fancy linking up to this latest challenge, hop on over to this site.

  1. I really like this very much. The quote (I was not familiar with) seems to be a trendy thing this week. We all seem to be dealing with/arting the same type of thing! The moon must be doing it or something. I love the stars from her eyes and her hair is just fantastic! Lovies, Samara
