It’s time for another challenge over at the AAA Cards challenge blog. Our theme for the new challenge is one corner with the optional twist of a fun Halloween themed color palette. Our guest designer for this challenge is Sandie from the London Days blog. We also have a $15 online store credit up for grabs for the winner from this challenge’s sponsor, STAMPlorations.
For my card, I decided to use the A Bear Kind of Winter stamps and dies from Picket Fence Studios. I stamped one of the bear images on some white cardstock using Black Amalgam Ink from Gina K. Designs then set it aside to dry for a bit.
Meanwhile, I created a top-folding card base. I did some simple ink blending in the lower right corner of the card front using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink and an ink blending brush. To finish off the card front, I stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set using the Black Amalgam Ink.
After letting the stamped image dry, I colored the image using my Copic markers. I colored the bear using some T2, T0, R20, and the 0 colorless blender. For the sweater, I used YG03, YG05, and YG17 for the green portions and R39, R27, R24, and R22 for the red portions.
Once the coloring was done, I cut the bear out using the coordinating die. I adhered it to the card front over the ink blended area using some foam squares and that completed the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today. I hope you’ve enjoyed this fun CAS project. Please be sure to head over to AAA Cards to play along with our current challenge. As always, please remember to keep your card CAS which, for us, means plenty of white space free of images, texture, pattern, etc. with minimal layers and embellishments.
