BC W54 - Happy 4th!
I was so glad I could jump back in to the Blogger's Challenge this week after missing it last week. This week's challenge was to create a card using color blocking. I have to say that really takes me back to the days when I owned a ton of color blocked clothing. Was that the 80's? I think it has been suppressed from my memory as it's just too painful to recall. Right up there with shoulder pads...
I can't believe that I have made two cards in a row without using patterned paper. Shocking! Instead I combined some Bazzill, Stampin' Up and Core'dinations card stock and punched out one inch squares. I drew light pencil lines in a grid to assist in the placement of the squares. I then glued them in place and when I was happy with them, I erased the lines. I doodled on each square with a Stampin' Up journaler.
The stamp is from Stampendous and it is called "Biker Bee". I just love these bees. They're so cute and so quick to color. In this case I used Copic markers and a touch of Stickles here and there. The stars were cut out using a Sizzix die and my Cuttlebug. I added the polka dots with a Martha Stewart opaque marker.
Hope your 4th is filled with family, fun and festivities!
