Good morning! Jess here with a card for our current Color Inspiration challenge! I love the colors in the challenge and today I decided to focus on the shades of blue and the icy feel of the photo!
To start I blended Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol smooth cardstock. I splattered the panel with water and white gouache to create a snowy background. Then I added snowflakes die-cut from the Mini Snowflakes and Stitched Snowflakes die sets with Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock. I stamped a sentiment from Den Sweet Den onto dark blue cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder before trimming it down to a thin label.
Next I die-cut the birdhouse and pole from Magic Iris Birdhouse Add-On with Light Brown Woodgrain cardstock. I wanted to soften the color so I blended over the cardstock with white pigment ink. I die-cut the birds and trim from white cardstock and then colored the birds with Copic markers. I used the backside of one of the birds to get a reverse image. I also die-cut the Mini Wreath from white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers as well. I used the following colors for my images: Wreath – BG72 ,BG65, BG78 Berries, Bow, and Birds – R35, R37, R39, R59, and 1000
I stamped the branches from Frosty Fairy Friends onto dark blue cardstock and heat-embossed them with silver embossing powder. I backed the birdhouse with the dark blue cardstock to create a little nest. Then I tucked one bird inside the house and adhered all my pieces to the snowy panel. I used foam mounting tape for the sentiment and bird to give them a little extra dimension. Finally I added a few accents with a white gel pen to finish the card!
And that’s it! You have one more weekend to get crafty and I can’t wait to see what you’ll create! Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend! –Jess
Have a happy weekend! Thanks so much, Fawnatics friends!
Hey everyone, Samantha here with a fun Christmas themed card that is inspired by the current Color Inspiration challenge. I love these types of challenges so much because it allows you to use color palettes that you may not typically choose. The palette for the challenge is so perfect for winter and the holiday season.
I created a snowy scene with the adorable bears from the Den Sweet Den stamp set. They are relaxing and enjoying their time together as a family. A freshly baked plate of cookies are the perfect treat to enjoy while passing time before they can open their gifts.
The Sparkle Pixie Dust Cardstock adds a sense of magic to the scene with the glittery texture and shimmer. I love adding the sparkle cardstocks to my projects because it just brings everything to life and enhances it.
You still have time to enter the Color Inspiration challenge. The challenge runs through Sunday, December 20th 11:59 EST. We look forward to seeing what you create!
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful day!
