You Bring Colour To My World…

Hello once again. It’s my final card as Surprise Party Guest at Seize The Birthday. It’s been a fabulous couple of months – I didn’t realise how many birthday cards I actually needed too – most of them went out within a couple of weeks of making them.

Onto the topic for the birthday card this time:

Here is my card:

MY ‘wheel’ is obviously the Colour Wheel – a slightly reduced colour scheme – I thought 6 colours would work for this…and with the pandas being black and white – well – I thought it would work quite nicely.

For images such as these pandas, then Copics are my favourite way of coloring – small images, with a little shading for dimension.

Now let me tell you – can you divide a circle into 6 equal parts without a protractor? It took me forever – hubby came up with the idea of printing out a clock face with just the numbers – then using the 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 – as the six partitions……he comes in handy occasionally!

I coloured the six parts, then drew a black dividing line between each, and die cut with a stitched circle.

The pandas are from Clearly Besotted – as is the sentiment. The word ‘colour’ – using the UK spelling to get the six letters – I stamped in a very light brown ink, then coloured each letter with the same Copic colours I had used on the wheel.

The ‘happy birthday’ is part of a longer sentiment, but I masked off the rest of it just to keep these two words.

I hope you can join us in the birthday challenge – whether you use the option or not – it would be great to see you there. xx

I shall be entering the following challenges:

  2. Using a color wheel for this theme is something I totally would never have thought of! And yes, it does work out very well with the black and white of the Pandas with the colorful color wheels. I love the look and design of your card!
    Regarding splitting the wheel – I was wondering – cutting the circle from some scrap paer and folding it (into half and then thirds) to get 6th of the portion – you could have used that to mark your pieces, right? Just wondering.. πŸ™‚
