Hello there. I was lucky enough to be picked as random winner for The Color Throwdown recently, and was given the opportunity to be Guest Star Stamper. Well, of course I jumped at the chance. Here are the colours for the new challenge:
And here is my card:
I used a combination of Time For Tea Designs stamps and dies to create the scene.
The car, paper plane, and panda’s were stamped then coloured with Copics., and die cut with their matching dies. The little paper plane has a little slit in the middle so you can insert your critter.
The background has clouds stenciled with Kitsch Flamingo. The first sky I stenciled I was a little heavy handed with the ink, so I did that again with a lighter hand.
The hillside scene was stamped and then coloured with Copics. Colouring larger areas with Copics is a struggle for me – I never know when to stop with the darker shades – how much to do – but I went with it – just a little darker shade when the hills seem to merge, and a little darker in the centre of the trees.
I hope you manage to come and play this week with the bright and fun colours. As usual, the Color Throwdown Team has a variety of inspiration for you.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Creative Knockouts – use die cuts
Just Add Ink – choose two – sky, trees, sea
Beyond The Blue – stencil time
Creative Fingers – anything goes
Time For Tea Designs July Challenge – anything goes with using their products
