Really Bold

I love the bold colours of this challenge and while watching a program last night I guess I was thinking about how to make a card. The program was one that had knights and jousting in it and I noticed one of the standards had this blocked background. Decided to try doing something similar for my card.

Colour Week #528

I am not very good at numbers so dividing this card into the correct size blocks was my biggest challenge. In the end I kind of eyeballed it and while not perfect it works. Using some masking I inked each rectangle with two of the challenge colours. Then I stamped the basket and the eggs from a GKD set called Springtime Baskets, on a scrap piece and coloured using my Inktense pencils. I fussy cut this out and added foam tape to the back. Cut a scalloped circle in black and popped the image on top. The sentiment came from the same stamp set and I used this one so if I want to use it as a birthday card I can. I also added some sparkle to the eggs but that doesn’t photograph well. Well I managed to miss the challenge timing, unfortunately so I’m sad.

  1. Thanks Judy. I’m sad because I missed the challenge. Hubby’s fault as he asked for my help and it took forever.


  2. Sorry you missed the challenge deadline but your color blocked Easter basket with eggs card turned out beautifully. I like the proportions of your blocks 🙂

    1. I totally understand about missing the deadline. That’s always saddening, but you have a great card and you get to use it to encourage someone this week! That’s a definite plus.
