Guest designer for Quirky crafts

I was lucky enough to be one of the winners at quirky crafts a short while ago and was given the chance to be a guest designer on this challenge.

Cazzy provided me with 2 digi images provided by their sponsors and the challenge is to use only 2 colours,with the exception of hair and skin. 

My first card uses digital delights jumping jemima, and the 2 colours I chose to use were purple and green. I think the image is such a fun one and it made me think of my young neighbour jumping on her trampoline in her garden, not that she looks anything like this though.

I decided it would make a fun Halloween card for her and so decided to keep to Halloween type colours and use orange for her hair. I coloured her with promarkers, I know it looks like I used dark grey on the trampoline but winter spruce and frosted leaf are actually greens, as is the khaki I used for her boots and the purples I used are all different shades too.

The papers are from bird's free digital papers and are scraps from my bits folders.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

My second card uses Sweet pea stamps fairy on a stool image. The 2 colours I chose this time are pink and brown again there are so many shades of each it becomes easy to complete an image using only 2 colours and this time that included my images skin and hair too.

I also added some clear glitter gel pen to the fairy wings, well you can't have a magical fairy without a little magical glitter sparkle can you?

The papers are again from my scraps folder and I think they are both digital papers from a set at stitchy bear.

I finished the card by adding some rich brown pearls to the corners of the layout.
