Our Colour Dare Challenge for #468 is the colours of the above inspiration image (at least 3 colours), you are free to use Black & White. When you are creating for more than one challenge please make sure your project meets our requirement. Most importantly - have fun! Go to the link for Colour Dare #468 and add your entry. When you submit your entry you must provide a link to your post, not just to your blog in general. There are LOTS of ways to enter either a Blog Post or post to an online gallery (Facebook, Pinterest, SplitCoast Stampers, or Instagram).
This image brings back lots of memories for me as I had these on a doona cover and some curtains when I was really small (*ahem* like 35yrs ago).
I made a quick and simple card for this challenge as I was required to make a bunch of thank you cards for my son's teachers for his last day of school before his Year 12 Graduation. This card I made was for one of the music teachers.
I picked out Dark Blue (Sapphire from the retired Wander collection with the white stars - you could create this look with sapphire cardstock and our new white White Gel Pens), then I picked light Blue (I chose Carolina Cardstock) and the brown, so I chose the new Mocha Cardstock. To get some tone-on-tone stamping I used an old stamp set with some music notes on it and random stamped all over the Mocha cardstock. I don't have the Mocha ink yet so I pulled out the reitred Nutmeg ink and they worked quite well together. I put an R in texta on the front of my ink pads that have retired so I know its an old colour but it still works well with current Mocha.
After doing stripes of each of the 3 main inspiration colours I decided to do a little gnome sign. I picked the gnome from the Mini Garden Gnomes Stamp + Thin Cuts from the Slimline Celebration Cardmaking Workshop Kit.
I coloured him with triblend markers in Fair Skin TriBlend™ Marker for his face and hands, Earth Brown TriBlend™ Marker for his boots and belt, True Blue TriBlend™ Marker for his hat and clothes and the lightest and mid tones of the Ice Grey TriBlend™ Marker for the bird.
Thanks so much for dropping by to check out my latest project. Hope you can join in the Colour My Heart Colour Dare Challenge #468. I'm really interested to hear what you think about my card, so I'd love you to leave a comment. See you again soon, subscribe to my blog so you don't miss a challenge.
