Have you played in the latest Cupcake Inspiration Challenge yet? This time around we have a colour palette to play with. We want to see your projects that focus on using red, orange and yellow. You can see the card I made for the start of the challenge here, and now I’m sharing a second card for the reminder post.
I started my card by using MFT Black Licorice Hybrid ink to stamp the owl from Paper Smooches’ Chubby Chums stamp set three times onto Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock. I then coloured the owls in with my Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers, focusing on using the colours set by the challenge. I did also use some dark grey as well, and a touch of very light blue to add shading to the eyes. Once I finished the colouring I fussy cut the owls and set them to one side.
I chose to use a red card base, and added detail to it by stamping a tone-on-tone design with the Love From Lizi Candystripe background stamp. I then cut a panel of Neenah Solar White 80lb card stock to just smaller than the card base, and created a frame on the panel with Love From Lizi Sunshine Yellow Pinstripe Peel-Offs. I used Versafine Onyx Black ink to add a sentiment to the white panel.
With all the elements prepared I moved on to assembling my card. I used double-sided tape on the back of the white panel to adhere that to the striped red card base. I then used Tombow Mono Multi Liquid glue to adhere the owls down. I positioned them so that they appear to be sitting one on top of the other, with the bottom-most owl sitting on the yellow frame. As I’d bought in the red and yellow more with my card base and frame I decided to bring in more of the orange with Nuvo Drops, so I used some Ripened Pumpkin drops around the sentiment.
I really do love the cute critters in the Chubby Chums stamp set. (If you saw my One Stamp Set Four Ways with it you may already have realised that!) Whilst the colours of the challenge aren’t the usual ones you would expect for owls I think they work really well for this little cutie. I hope this inspires you to come and join in with our challenge at Cupcake Inspirations.
