It's Tuesday, that means another challenge at The Outlawz. This week, our Tuesday Color Challenge is a little different. We are using a flag for our colors...and if you haven't already guessed it, yes, it's the Irish flag. It is March afterall, and St. Patrick's Day is next week...so time to whip out those green, orange and white cards! Here is our inspiration photo and colors:
Our sponsor for the month of March is Sweet Pea Stamps. They sell both digital and rubber stamps, with a wide assortment to choose from. Please go check them out.
Here is the card I made using Norma J. Burnell's Cat's Cradle image.
This card is on a white card base, with a layer of green glitter paper and a layer of orange glitter paper from DCWV's glitter stack. I printed the image on white card stock and colored it using Copic markers. There are seven different greens on this image (dress, hat, wings - G00, G02, G03, G05, G07, G09, G29; cat - YR00, YR12, YR14, YR18; jewels YR18; skin - R0000, R01; lips and eyeshadow - YR12, YR14, YR18). I colored the jewels in the image YR18, but then covered them up with orange crystal gems in two sizes. The image was cut using Spellbinder's Resplendent Rectangles and popped up onto the orange glitter paper with foam dots. Using my Silhouette, I typed Erin Go Bragh with Some Weatz Swashes font and used the clover cut file from Doodle Pantry's Four Leaf Clover .svg set to cut it out. I used pumpkin pie ink and a Sakura gel pen (orange xpgb#705) to distress it. What you also can't see in this photo, is the shimmer all over her using another Sakura gel pen (green xpgb#727). I am including another photo below of a close-up. Last, I added green crystal gems in three of the corners. Here is a close-up view.
I really hope you get a chance to come join our challenge this week. It would be so wonderful to see what you have created using these colors.
