* Colour Crazy Challenge: Super Dad


I am delighted to be back as a Guest DT on the Colour Crazy Challenge blog for a further three months. 

The challenge is always Anything Goes, but of course your card must feature some colouring: use any medium you wish. This week the fantastic Bugaboo Stamps is the sponsor.

I was lucky to receive a digi stamp to work with and I chose Super Dad. Here is my card:

My image was die cut and coloured with Copic markers. I replaced the die so that I could blend ink onto the stamp background - I used Memento Danube Blue and, on the edges, Nautical Blue. I love how keeping the die in place creates a crisp white border.
The background is two sheets of design paper, die cut with Sue Wilson Double Stitched Squares. I alternated the squares and attached them to a 6 x 6 cm card blank. I also die cut two banners which I attached on foam for dimension. The image was placed on top of the banners. I added a printed sentiment using the Baby Powder font from Vera Lane Studio. It was also cut with a stitched rectangle die and inked with blue to match the rest of the card. A red felt heart was attached to the top left hand corner.

Many thanks to Bugaboo Stamps for sponsoring this challenge.

I hope you'll find time to share your projects at the Colour Crazy Challenge
