Colour Me Challenge #65 – You’re Earresistible with Lawn Fawn

Cards, Challenges, Easter

Have you been fooled yet today? Someone always seems to get me each year when April 1st rolls around. Well good news, no tricks on the z² blog today!

This week the Colour Me Challenge is to create a project using sky blue, and neutrals.

I created a silly Easter card for my project using some supplies and techniques that I’ve been experimenting with recently–mixing stamps to create a single image, and using speciality media, in this case, faux suede. To be honest, this is one of those projects that I like the idea, but I don’t love the final project. Time wasn’t on my side this week, so I decided just to run with it and share the card anyway.

The You’re Earresistible sentiment from the Eggstra Special Easter set inspired this card. I thought it would be funny to create a little bunny parade with a dog trying to join the fun and sneak in “undercover” with big bunny ears. I combined stamps from Lawn Fawn (Critters at the Dog Park, and Eggstra Special Easter) to create my undercover pup. If you’re curious about this technique, I recently posted another video where I go in to more detail about how I do it. You can see the blog post and video here.

Make sure to visit the other designers for more blue inspiration. I got a sneak peek at this week’s creations and they are just oozing with inspiration–

Until next time,

Colour Me Challenge #64 – Easter Shaker Card with Lawn Fawn

Cards, Challenges, Easter

Welcome! This week the Colour Me challenge incorporates four(!) colours: two shades of red, a teal, and a turqoise.

When my card has to be extra (eggstra…) colourful, I tend to use each colour quite sparingly. This card is no exception. I combined several patterned papers to paper piece and create an Easter themed shaker. Since the four colours are similar in tone, I was able to find plenty of paper in my stash that fit the bill. Almost all of the supplies I used were from Lawn Fawn. Make sure to check out my video tutorial to see how I made this week’s card.

Supplies:

Thanks so much for dropping by this week! Hope to see you back here again soon!
