Here we go ... our newest Tuesday Color Challenge at The Outlawz! Ursula chose our inspiration photo and colors this week. And, a wonderful twist ... make it a birthday! There are five colors on the inspiration photo, but you only need to use three! I really hope you will come and play along with us this week.
Our wonderful Sponsor for the month of March is Sweet Pea Stamps. They have a lot of awesome stamps to choose from, both rubber and digital, from many different artists.
Here is the card I made for the challenge. I am using Karen Middleton's Biker Boy digi for this card. What an incredibly fun image to color.
This card started with the cut file. I used the Balloon Confetti Card (Design #58940) from Silhouette's Online Store. I cut the design using textured card stock from Bazzill. I usually hoard my Bazzill card stock, but thought it would be perfect for this card. To create my background, I took a piece of white card stock and used four colors of Stampin' Up! ink (daffodil delight, riding hood red, marina mist, wild wasabi) and finger daubers to lay ink over the entire page. I glued this page behind the balloons. I brought the biker boy image in my Silhouette software and did a trace on the outside of the image. Because my cut file had all the confetti, I removed the confetti from the image and just used the boy. I did a print and cut twice. I colored one of the images with Copic markers (hat - R21, R24, R27; hair - Y11, Y13, Y15; shirt - YG61, YG63, YG67; jeans - B12, B14, B16; skin - R000, R01; shoes - Y26, Y28; tires - C4, C5; flag - C9 colored in criss-cross pattern; bike - Sakura clear star gelly roll). The second image was glued underneath the colored image to give it a little more thickness and stability. I used foam tape to pop it up on the page. The sentiment is from the On Your Birthday stamp set from Stampin' Up! and layered on riding hood red card stock.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
