Welcome to challenge #3 of the Calling All Sistahs challenge! On the 18th of each month, a new challenge will be kick off over on the Calling All Sistahs blog. The mood board and color palette above is the inspiration for this month’s challenge. I hope you head over to check out all the inspiration cards from the Encouragement Squad Design Team and then play along! If you haven’t seen who won last month’s challenge yet, be sure to head over and check out the winners.
Here’s the card I created for this month’s challenge.
I absolutely loved the rainbow of colors in the inspiration photo. I decided to use the color inspiration to fill in the flowers from the Tin Roof border. I stamped the border on some white card stock using some black ink then filled in the design using some markers from Stampin’ Up!® Here are the colors I used:
- Tempting Turquoise
- Daffodil Delight
- Real Red
- Pumpkin Pie
- Garden Green
Once I had all the coloring down, I trimmed the border down a bit and matted on a piece of Tempting Turquoise card stock using Snail adhesive. Next, I adhered it to the card base, also using Snail adhesive. I stamped a couple of the sentiments from the Breathe stamp set just above the matted panel using the same black ink.
To embellish the card, I went over all the flowers with some Wink of Stella then added some Nuvo Jewel Drops from Tonic Studios around the sentiment. I had five transparent colors from the Jewel line that I thought worked beautifully with this color palette. I used Sea Breeze, Strawberry Coulis, Limoncello, Key Lime, and Orange Marmalade. I completed the card by wrapping some black and white baker’s twine around the top of the card and finishing it off with a little bow.
I hope you’ll join us over at the Calling All Sistahs blog and play along with this challenge. To join in, all you have to do is create an encouragement-themed card using the inspiration image and/or color palette then link up on the current challenge post over at the Calling All Sistahs blog.
