In honor of World Card Making Day on Saturday, October 1st, we're kicking things off one day early in a wild and wacky fashion! Have we got a challenge for you! It's all about that inner kid and why we love card making in general - we get to be creative! So, think like a kid and share your favorite animated character. Find a picture of that character and then, be inspired by the colors for one fun-filled color challenge! We'll take entries through next Thursday, October 6th at 5PM EST. The winner of this challenge gets a fun-filled prize pack with 5 Flourishes stamp sets of our choice. Once you're done with your creation, simply link up on the Flourishes Blog using our Inlinkz widget. If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, please use the keyword FLLCWCMD11. Th-th-tha-that's all folks!
How fun is this?!! I grew up with Mickey so I just had to pick him, right? Here's the graphic I'm using for my inspiration.
I love black, white, and red together so this was perfect for me.
I'm using the recently released Medallion Motif set. I really love this set--so many possibilities with this classic design--it even works for a cartoon character ;-) And, since Mickey's a guy, this card could very easily work as a masculine card, don't you think?
I stamped the medallion image off center towards the top on Classic White card stock with Versafine Onyx Black ink. I love the crisp image you get with Versafine. Then I stamped the dotted circle on some red card stock for the center, and popped up the sentiment on more Classic White. I matted this with more red, then black, and tied some sweet red and black gingham around in a bow. Finally, I added some black flat backed beads to the right lower corner for balance.
