In honor of World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 1st, we're kicking things off one day early in a wild and wacky fashion! Have we got a challenge for you! It's all about that inner kid and why we love card making in general - we get to be creative!
So, think like a kid and share your favorite animated character.
Find a picture of that character and then, be inspired by the colors for one fun-filled color challenge! Mine is below!
We'll take entries through next Thursday, October 6th at 5PM EST. The winner of this challenge gets a fun-filled prize pack with 5 Flourishes stamp sets of our choice.
Once you're done with your creation, simply
link up on this post using our Inlinkz widget. If you upload to
Splitcoaststampers, please use the keyword FLLCWCMD11.
And now for my inspiration…Perry the Platypus from the Phineas and Ferb cartoon. I love that cartoon! I never thought in my adult life I would be watching cartoons, but with two boys I think I see them more now then I did when I was a kid!
I chose the What a Catch stamp set for my color combo. I thought it worked perfectly for a masculine card.
My image is stamped on Flourishes classic white card stock and colored with Copics. I’d love to tell you the names of all the patterned paper I used, but it was all scraps and I don’t remember. I just love the map paper though, and wanted to make sure Paradise Bay showed! Who doesn’t want to fish in paradise?! I do know that the blue dot is an embossed cardstock from Bazzill. I snipped a piece of a feather and tucked it under a button and twine to mimic a fly, and added a fish charm to my sentiment.
We have lots of fun inspiration photos and great samples to share, so make sure you visit the design team ladies below!
