Its a challenge that runs until the 17th August (started 14th August), so a nice quick one and with it ending on my birthday, I knew I had to give it a go!!
The theme is 'Lines' and Kathy shows a couple of videos on creating lines and how to give them interest by thickening them and giving them 'eyelashes' etc. You really must have a look. I thought it would be quite fun, so I scribbled random black lines on a piece of white CS and away I went:
Eeeek, this isn't your normal kind of card, I can hear you say. It looks like a child coloured this in, I also hear someone whispering in the background. And I totally agree but this was so much fun!!
I only had one felt tip pen to use when doing the lines, so wasn't able to do the 'eyelash' effect but did manage to thicken the lines in some places before I took to it with my pencils. After I finished, I used a circle die to cut out my favourite area and also cut two more circles from black CS. In her video Kathy also mentions how she likes to die-cut words from her colouring pieces, layer them and put them back in, so I decided to do that too!
I die-cut the 'happy' from the piece and also three times from black CS. I glued all the circles together (which gave the word die-cut a black background) and then glued all the words, which were then put back in the die-cut negative. I then heat embossed the 'birthday' in white on some black CS and popped it up on foam tape. A few sequins to finish it off and my colouring adventure was complete!!
The circle die is from Couture Creations. The sentiment stamp is from Whimsy Stamps 'Happy Everything' as well as the 'happy' die.
As I shared the photo of this card on Instagram, I don't need to link it to the challenge but I have three other challenges I would like to join:
Simply Create Too Challenge # 92 (Anything Goes)
Little Tangles Challenge # 59
Seize the Birthday Challenge
I'm now working on another colouring piece but this time with water colours, so hope to finish that this afternoon. I also put in an order to Simon Says Stamps on Saturday which included my first lot of Zig Markers (packet of 12). I'm so excited and can't wait for them to arrive. I also splashed out on two sets of stamps with matching dies but you will have to wait and see what they are....
Thank you so much Kathy for organising such a fun little challenge and I look forward to the next one. I might even be able to participate in her next colouring challenge in October but will have to practice ALOT with my new markers......
