Tiddly Tuesday - Colour Challenge

Good morning!  It's Tiddly Tuesday!  We had some gorgeous entries into our Celebration challenge!  This week we have a brand new two week challenge for you!  It's a tough one though... it's a colour challenge!

Here are the colours we would like you to use:

Of course you can use other skin and hair colours, but we would like the rest of your creation to be limited to these colours if possible.  Head on over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous projects from my teamies!  

I must admit I struggled with this one!  It's not a colour combo I'm used to using as I am really not very fond of this colour green, but here's what I came up with...
This little cutie is Lilli Claire - Did you Hear? and I have coloured her with copics (see details below).  I have kept the card fairly simple as my image was quite large.  The papers are from Crate Paper and Echo Park and the clip and film strip are by Tim Holtz.  The tag is from Maya Rd and the sentiment stamp is from Amy R Summer Sentiments.

Here's a close up of Lilli Claire:
And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #59: No Floral Embellishments
iCopic Lover Weekly Challenge #65: Unloved colours

Okay, that's all from me for now!  I hope you can join us this fortnight!

Ooh such a gorgeous card, wouldn't have known you'd struggled at all! Love the film strip & the clip.

About a week ago you left a comment on my blog (thank you!) asking about the red & purple colour combo & the red hatters.... In answer to your question, yes I believe the inspiration for the red hatters colours was indeed taken from the poem. However if you're familiar with the entire poem (if not a quick google will provide) I don't believe they've taken all of the advice in the poem to heart lol!! xx

This is adorable Arabella and that filmstrip embellishment is too cool! Love it!

Her hair is gorgeous Arabella. Don't we all wish we could have such great high lights IRL ;D

I think you chose an awesome green, the small touch of it on her shoes and the birdie is perfection. Lovely embellies too.
