Good morning friends
It's Saturday so that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. It's a new month so we also have a new Hostess and Guest Designer. Our August 2017 Hostess is Raquel Mason and Fran Sabad is our Guest Designer. You can find Fran's Blog HERE.
Raquel's challenge this week is: Summer Fun – Let’s keep it simple for the summer and make a bright and cheerful card.
I'm thinking a rainbow coloured goofy dog is pretty bright and cheerful!!
I really have a lot of fun with Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-Up and used it here with one of my water coloured backgrounds. I cut a window from the card front and framed it using the label dies that come in the set,
To add a little more definition to the dog, I used Zig Clean Colour Markers on his ears, nose, tongue and collar. Just a light touch blended with a water brush. I went over his eyes with a white gel pen then dotted the black back in with a black glaze pen. His nose has glossy accents.
Love those Nuvo Crystal Drops.
I also added two of the Nature Edges and the little stitched detail piece on the front is from the Twist Panel Pop-Up. The Hello (love that sweet script Karen Burniston has for her word dies) is from the Word Set-1, Greetings. I've sure gotten a lot of use out of that set since I got it!
This card just makes me happy. I used both Color Burst and Magical Shakers for the water coloured background.
