Here's my happy little card for this week's Color Dare, using some bold primary colours:
Those happen to be the colours of CTMH's paper pack Tommy which has some neat nautical images. I used one piece of the Tommy paper for my "sky" and Outdoor Denim for my "sea." Some border dies and Paper Smooches' Wicked Nauticool stamp set completed the tool kit.
CTMH's card stock has a white core, so the white is revealed when you sand the paper. This is what I did to get some "white-caps" on the edge of my "waves." The different layers are foam-taped on top of each other to give the effect of a choppy sea.
I stamped the life preserver on kraft paper and added some shading with markers. The little gull is also coloured with markers. The speech bubble was cut with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.
I used the maritime signal flags to decorate the inside of the card.
I gave this thank-you card to a co-worker earlier this week, who helped me out with some French translation (I can speak the language but writing in it is a whole 'nother matter...She came to my aid!)
I'm heading out to the East Coast this weekend to open up our cottage, so this wavy scene was also most appropriate.
Sail on over to the Color My Heart blog to see some other great ideas with our primary colours. You have one week to post your project. If you don't have CTMH colours its okay, just sub in similar colours. But remember, just those colours PLUS neutrals (black, white, grey, browns and kraft) are ship-shape for our colour challenges.
