A couple weeks ago, I posted a color challenge. The task was to use these colors...
...as part of a project (a card, layout, home decor - anything!).
Today I'm here to share my take on the challenge:
I started with the October kit from Simon Says Stamp:
The colors in this kit were a perfect match for the challenge; the difficult part was choosing which stamp I wanted to use!
After more deliberation than I'd care to admit, I chose the squirrel stamp with the "nuts about you" sentiment. I stamped the squirrel onto a 2.75" by 5.5" piece of cardstock (can you tell my boys sometimes use my ink pads?):
I then die cut around the squirrel (the die I used actually cuts two nesting circles, which allowed for the "border" around my circle):
I then stamped the sentiment:
Next, I cut and scored the cardstock base for the card(it's just a standard A2):
I cut down a piece of patterned paper to 3.25" by 5.5" and adhered it to the card base. I used pop dots to adhere the white panel:
Finally, I added a couple sequins and put some glossy accents on top of the squirrel:
The pop dots I used under the circle are a smidge lower than the ones under the main panel; I wanted to give the card a bit more visual dimension.
And one more time, here's the finished product:
Oh, one last thing...I added a wee acorn to the inside of the card. I like the way it ties the inside of the card to the front:
There's still time for you to participate in this color challenge. Please share your work through in a link in the comments or via Facebook!
