How to: use unusual colors

Happy Labour Day! I hope you are enjoying your day off as I am... This is a silence before the storm, because on Monday I am going with my class for a 'green school' for 15 days... Do I have to add anything more? LOL
Today's new challenge at
Crafty Catz Challenge Blog Bagde
has been chosen by our Boss Lady Carol and this time we would like to inspire you with a color combo.
Our sponsor for this one is

I have to admit I would probably never choose these colors together, sitting comfortably in my box. But they look really cool together!
For this card I have chosen the sponsor's digi 'Fae 19', she's really beautiful. The fairy is colored with Promarkers and I have simply torn out the edges, thinking 'why not?'. They have been disttressed with a distress ink and the whole image is placed on a 3D foam.
All of the embellishments are from my stash and I added some feathers to refer to the fairy's hair decoration.
There is no sentiment on this card, so it's suitable for many occassions.
Thank you for visiting my blog!

Delightful coloring skills Anna - and tearing around the image was a stroke of genius! I have never seen it done that way before! Also unique is the strip of background paper layered over the lace and then anchored with pearls - nicely done! Absolutely delighted you are sharing your project & creativity at 613 Ave C!
