Good morning! I am so glad you took time out of your busy day to stop by for a visit. Today we have a new challenge up over at Meljen's Designs. It's a colour challenge! Here are the shades we'd like to see in your card.
For my card I used 4 different Meljen's images! I have to tell you, I really had fun doing this card; though I did use shades that are a bit darker than the ones in this inspiration photo.
The basic shape of this card is 7"x 41/2". I cut out a section (from the folded side), that was 4"(along fold) x 2"(into card front / back). It now looked like a rectangular card with a square bite taken out of it's folded side. I decorated the front with dotted card stock, a striped DP, a banner, (cut using a Spellbinder's die) and some braided twine. I used the following MD images, which you can find right here in the shop: Circus Clown; Twin Star String ( printed 3 times); Festive Firecrackers (printed twice) and Happy Birthday Word Art ( printed twice). All of the images were coloured with Copic Markers and I added a bit of glitter to different areas. Then I "fussy cut" them all out.
I attached most of the pieces with foam squares, to give dimension. The stars were hot glued randomly to a piece of wire that I coiled around a brush handle, which I then hot glued to the Clown's hands. The Clown was then adhered to the back side of the front "bite" opening. To draw a bit more attention to the banner I added some faux stitching and tiny buttons.
Even though this card looks a bit complicated it was actually extremely quick and easy, plus it was a lot of fun to do!
I hope I've given you a bit of encouragement to get colouring and hopefully join in our challenge this week. I love seeing the great things you all come up with.
Until next time, blessings on your day.
