WWC288 – Kath\’s Challenge: All About Occasions

Hello!  I am excited that you stopped by to see this card…I love how bright and bold it is! 

This week at The Watercooler Wednesday Challenge we are creating Occasion cards.  Talented Kath is our hostess.  There are so many occasions and we would love to see your project in our gallery.

I started by stamping, Copic coloring and die-cutting two floral sprays.  I wanted to ink blend a complimentary background, but in reverse order of the colors of the flowers.  Since the card is bold, I also wanted some contrast, so I masked off 1 1/2\” on the left side of the card base.  I started ink blending in the bottom right with yellow and then added six more colors to achieve the gradient I was looking for.  I arranged the two sprays along the border of the white strip and ink blending and used foam adhesive to give added  and dimension to the focal point.
Supplies Used:
Simon Says Stamp Birthday Mix 1 sentiment stamp & die bundle
Distress Inks
Copic markers
Foam Squares
Masking tape

Time Out \”Seasons\” Challenge #169 with optional twist coloring.

UPDATE:  My card received honors at Time Out!

This card also was selected as a \”Top 3\” at Double D!

I am so pleased that you stopped by!

  1. Wonderful card Karen. I love how bold it is too! Love how you used the reverse of the colours in your sponging-which is perfect! Super colouring and placement along the edge world so well especially as you added the dimension. Thanks for joining Time Out x


  2. Blue and yellow isn't a combo I think to use very often but I'm in love with it on your card!! Your flowers are coloured beautifully and such a good idea to reverse the colours of your background ink blending to make them pop. Such a gorgeous card, so very happy you shared it with us at TIME OUT!


  3. I came by to congratulate you on Time Out and Double D, Karen, but I'm glad to see you already know! It REALLY stands out a mile in the galleries and is so well-deserving of the recognition!! Hugs, Darnell
