Colourful Challenge Combo..


I have been rather unwell this week - AGAIN!! This time it has been diagnosed as strep - ugh.

So to cheer myself up I thought I'd try and make a card for both the Global Design Project and CASology challenges, which I thought would go together really well.

I really liked the idea of combining these two colour challenges.

I decided I would use the Avery Elle Peacock stamp - it is a fave of mine, because I think it is super versatile. I stamped and coloured it using my Copics and a Promarker for the Grape :)

Then I die-cut it out and added a touch of Nuvo Aqua Shimmer.

I then created a heart mask - I create these by keeping all the inserts from stamp sets and then I die-cut shapes out of them, creating the mask. Means you have a lot of cover, so you don't get ink on the rest of the card. I used the mask hanging slightly off the edge of my white panel and blended distress oxide Fosilized Amber into the heart shape.

I die-cut the white panel using a stitched rectangle die and mounted it onto a white card blank.

The sentiment is by Market Street Stamps (no longer in business) and I stamped it in a coordinating grape coloured ink, added my colourful Peacock and voila! Finished card.

Love how the card combines both challenges so nicely and I do love a slightly unusual Anniversary card.

  1. Such a sweet card. A Peacock is just the perfect choice for the color challenge. The heart shape in the background adds interest to the design. Your focal point goes very well with the CAS design. Thank you for playing along with us at the CASology challenge. Hope to see you again. Happy Crafting. Hugs - Bharati
