Another double challenge

This card was made for K Werner’s Color Inspiration #50 as well as the Card Patterns sketch #12. Here are the inspiration pieces:
042509-colors
sketch12
I started with a Chocolate Chip card base. I layered a panel of Tempting Turquoise over that and a YoYo Yellow panel on top of that. I stamped the image from A Flower for All Seasons three times in Timber Brown StazOn and watercoloured it with yoyo yellow, chocolate chip, tempting turquoise, kiwi kiss and riding hood red. I punched it out with a circle punch and layered that on a riding hood red scallop circle. I popped those up. I used a sentiment from the Chit Chat rub-on package and cut it out with my Nesties. I threaded some chocolate chip ribbon around it and the card was done! Thanks for having a look!

K Werner Color Challenge 46, Kerin Sylvester Sketch Challenge #8

During my recent “blurfing”, I came across a number of new challenges that I am really interested in participating in. Although this is absolutely wonderful, there are not enough hours in the day for me to create a card for every one of them unless I combine the challenges when possible. Most of the challenges I have flagged are sketch challenges, but I know I’ll find other colour and inspiration challenges out there to help me along! I combined the K Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #49 with Kerin Sylvester’s Sketch Challenge #8. I used Hero Arts Asian Frames for my main image and used blender pens to pick up ink and colour in the image. I layered it with Basic Black and Kiwi Kiss. I added Rose Red brads to the corners. I used various S-U DSP’s and one non S-U patterned paper behind the main image. My card base is Basic Black and I layered it with Whisper White. I inked part of a sentiment with a black marker and punched it out with oval punches. I used Pacific Point around the sentiment. That’s it! Thanks for having a look.

Kristina Werner Colour Inspiration #47

As I often do, I combined challenges – it makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something major (I know, it’s a little thing, but it helps me get through the day!). This time, I put together Kristina’s Colour Inspiration Challenge from yesterday with the SCS Sketch Challenge #221. I had the chicks image from A Little Birdie Told Me on my craft table for about 2 months! Actually, I have about 10 of them sitting there because I was going to use them for a swap, but never did. This one was already coloured too – I only added grass under their little toes (do chicks have toes?). My card measures 5″ x 5″. The base is Gina K. 120 lb. card stock. I added panels using DSP. The “It’s your birthday” sentiment comes from Gina K. too. I used a nestie punch to frame it and I finished it off with some Tangerine grosgrain that I’ve had forever and some orange brads. TGIF!

K Werner Color Challenge 46

I stalked Kristina’s blog for about 6 hours waiting for her to post the color challenge this week and was so happy when it was finally posted. Unfortunately, when I went to make a card, I couldn’t get one put together for the life of me. I had 3 other images stamped and partially or completely coloured, then couldn’t figure out how to lay it all out. I abandoned it for a couple of days until yesterday, when Cathy came over and got me out of a bit of a slump I was in. This is what I finally came up with – nothing earth shattering by any means. I used an old Sketch Challenge on SCS (#208). I used “House on the Hill” stamp from Sunshine Designs. I inked it up with Black Stazon on watercolour paper and used the other colour inks and an aquapainter to fill it in. I added stickles to give it a little shine. My card base is Basic Black and I added a white panel with Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Pretty in Pink so it didn’t look so plain. I layered my image panel with Bashful Blue and behind that is Regal Rose. I added a couple of Pretty in Pink buttons on the bottom and voila, c’est fini!
