It’s ages since I participated in a challenge – colour or sketch – and this weekend I’ve created cards for two different colour challenges. My first card is for the Colour INKspiration challenge. I needed two boy (15 year olds) cards so this combo was perfect.
I chose Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Bermuda Bay, Pretty Peacock and Gorgeous Grape for my colours and then I found a layout on Pinterest so married the two together and this is what I created.
Using scraps of cardstock I die cut three different styles of triangles from the Stitched Triangle dies. The ‘Happy’ has been die cut using the Playful Alphabet dies and the Foam Adhesive Sheets.
I wanted a solid image for the ‘Birthday’ so went with one of the Sale-A-Bration sets ‘Approaching Perfection’. The stamp actually has ‘Happy Birthday!’ so I used a Post It note to cover the bits I didn’t want before inking it up with VersaMark and then heat embossing in White. I then die cut it using the Tasteful Touches dies
And for the inside you need some candles so the ‘Approaching Perfection’ set was used again.
Seeing the ‘boys’ are turning fifteen I stamped the image three times using Gorgeous Grape, Bermuda Bay and Mango Melody.
Check back on Tuesday night for the second colour challenge card which also has a technique.
Until then …
