Good morning. It's the Spring Equinox today, so summer is almost here! We also have a brand new challenge at Cardz4Guyz. This time we would like your designs using
ANY COLOURING MEDIUM
As regular visitors here will know, Copic markers are my default setting for colouring, so this was an absolute no brainer! Here's my take.
I found this little chap in my to colour box, it's a digi from LOTV called Super Striker. He's in the strip of Liverpool FC, to keep my Son in law happy and I doodled the front of his shirt with their logo and sponsor's name using white gel pen and a touch of Copic marker for colour. The layout I used, I'd seen on Pinterest and had been waiting for just the occasion to use it.
I printed off some NitWits DP in roughly Liverpool colours and die cut a net using an hexagonal cover plate die from Sizzix, the green stripe was some scrap coloured with matching green Copic marker. My sentiment was stamped on a tab cut using an old Marianne die and tucked under the edge of the square panel. To assemble, I glued my DP across my 7 x 7 square base card, added thin strips of red card above and below, added the green strip and the mock netting. The image I mounted on red card and slipped it through the red ring of card. Just snip the circle for ease and rejoin it at the back where it doesn't show! The finished panel was added to the card on pads.
So where will you go with the colouring element. Will it be crayons, watercolour or alcohol markers like me? We'd love to see your take in our gallery. For more inspiration check out the rest of the team here.
