Retro Rubber Challenge 57 - Color My World and The Daily Marker 30 Day Color Challenge
Hello everyone! I love it when the planets align and I have the opportunity to use a project in more than one place! Two things happened this week in my favor. First - the 7th "30 Day Coloring Challenge" started over on The Daily Marker. I always stress out over these because I really want to do something each day but always fail. This time I am just going with the flow. If I make something, fine. If not, no big deal!!
And, the current Retro Rubber Challenge - Challenge 57 - is all about color! I had to use the photo below for inspiration.
I had two ideas in my head. One was a vertical card and the other was a horizontal card. I decided to use an older (like from 2007) stamp by Penny Black called tigress (3817K), which is still being made (YAY), and some Bic Markers in the colors from the inspiration photo.
For the horizontal card I started with an A2 card base of white cardstock. I then cut another piece of white cardstock, 4" x 5.25", and stamped the image of the twice (yes, I used a stamp positioner). I then stamped the phrase "Thanks A Bunch" from THIS Dear Lizzy stamp set.
I then colored the flowers in using Bic Markers - Rambunctious Red, Blue Skies Blue, Key Lime, Hot Aqua, and Yellow Blaze.
I then adhered a piece of white fun foam to the back and then adhered this to the card front. The last thing I did was to apply some Stickles to each of the flowers using True Blue, Firefly, Xmas Red, and Yellow.
For the vertical card, I also started with a top folding A2 card base of white cardstock. I then cut another piece of white cardstock, 4" x 5.25", and stamped the tigress stamp in the lower right side. I then stamped the phrase "you color my world" by Viva Las Vegas Stamps, next to the flowers. I colored the flowers with the same Bic Markers, applied the same Stickles to each of the flowers, adhered a piece of white fun foam to the back and adhered this to the card front.
That's it!! I love how these primary colors pop off the card. Very clean and simple! I hope you get a chance to check out the 30 Day Coloring Challenge and maybe you can even make a card for the Retro Rubber Card Challenge!
Until next time -
