And back to the post, today I'm posting a card I made for Stamp TV's Monday Challenge (Hot and Cool), together with My Craft Spot's Challenge (Hot Summer Colors). Being the two are kind of similar I made a card fit for both challenges. The Hot and Cold challenge was to use 'hot' colors in a cool setting. So I decided to create a birthday card using bright summery colors, in an underwater setting. The card is for a cute little boy so the bright colors are right on- I made the theme an underwater birthday party. Here's the card:
The DP from Gina K Designs is perfect for the ocean so I used that as the background, then added the stamped images. I traced the sea horse with orange metallic pen, and then colored part of it with a clear sakura pen. To make it more kid-friendly and festive, I cut out a triangle from the same DP I used for the flag banner and used it as a birthday hat! I also use the sakura pen to delineate the shells (4 for his 4th birthday) and also on the castle. I used copics to color the images.
Well, my friends, that's it for today. Thank you for stopping by! I will see you soon with posts from my craft room! Come back and visit!
Have a bright day!
