Good afternoon, I hope I find you well.
This year is whizzing by, already the start of a new month so a brand new colour combo from Color Hues for you to play along with. This time Hannelie has chosen a bright and bold combination, here's my take.
I had so many ideas flitting around my head, that it was difficult to settle on one particular idea. In the end I decided that I really ought to ink the rabbit up from the Anita Jerram Birthday Wishing set by Colorado Crafts. I've used the cute hamster and the rats but so far not the rabbit with his balloon.
The colours reminded me of a card I saw a while ago but can I find it on Pinterest, can I, so I apologise to the crafter responsible for not giving full credit!
I liked the idea of using a polaroid style frame for my background to sit in, which is made by stenciling Black Soot DI, lightly onto the central area over my MFT cloud stencil. That was certainly worth the purchase prize as it gets used a lot! I popped it back into the aperture and put to one side whilst I stamped, coloured with Copics and fussy cut my bunny.
To create the two panels, I first thought of using some DP I had but the yellow wasn't as intense as I would have liked, so I used the Background Blocks Horizontal Stripes from Uniko and stamped with Altenew's Fresh Lemon ink. The spotty panel is also from Uniko, BB Scattered Polka Dots stamped with Altenew Obsidian ink.
The layout sort of happened accidentally as I'd placed all my elements to one side whilst I made an A6 card base. The stack slipped and created a very effective layout!
The sentiment from Uniko's Everyday Sentiments was stamped on a strip of black and heat embossed with white EP, trimmed and added to the card.
So where will the colours take you? If you need more inspiration, then check out the rest of the team and our GD here.
