Colour Me... Playful!

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

Morning, y'all!  I'm back with another playful challenge from Colour Me...!  This one calls for Stampin' Up's Pool Party, Lost Lagoon, Cajun Craze, and Tangerine Tango and inspired a card for one of my daughter's little friends.  She was so excited over attending his birthday party this past weekend and thanked me over and over for making him this card and letting her go.  So sweet!
I started his card by anchoring a couple of patterned papers, onto the White, cardstock, card face, with a black-threaded, straight, machine-stitch, double frame and wrapping their combined center with a length of aqua ribbon which was tied, in a knot, near the right edge of the card face.
A White, cardstock, rounded-rectangle die cut was then stamped, in Jet Black ink, in its bottom center, with the "wild about you!" sentiment.  The lion was stamped just above that in fussy-cut layers, separated by foam tape, of Tangerine Tango and Cajun Craze inks and topped with a stamped, in Peacock Feathers and Summer Sun inks, bird.  I also added a little hand-penned, Jet Black ink for the eyes and nose, as well as a hint of Crystal Effects just for the lion's nose.
The balloons were stamped, in Pool Party and Island Indigo inks, on White, cardstock die cuts; anchored to the lion with hand-drawn, in Jet Black ink, strings; and given a hint of shine with Dazzling Diamonds; before that entire piece was adhered, in the center of the card face, with foam tape.  A sprinkling of color-coordinating sequins and clear gemstones completes the look.
Here's your Creative Challenge No. 86 graphic to get you started.
