This week Sabrina has challenged us to use Colour-Blocking - with paper as well as stamps. There isn’t a tutorial on SCS, but there’s a write-up for a very early TLC ~ TLC49, and here’s a link to the gallery for that challenge. Sabrina knows there’s a lot of colour-blocking around now using stamping with acrylic blocks, but she is looking for the old school style!
For my card this week I used Kraftin Kimmies Stamps new Owl stamp set …. I just had to add this to my cart when it was release recently . I created my color block pieces for the base of my card and then layered my owl square panel over these … hopefully that is ok!
Of course if you follow my blog, you will know that I have been playing with my new Journey Collection Pop N Cuts dies designed by Karen Burniston for Sizzix …. love love love all of these fun dies. Today I have used the original Pop N Cuts base for the outside of my card … I trimmed it down a little to remove the rounded corners and it would have been too hard to create the color blogs with the rounded edges.
On the inside of my card I used the new Sizzix Pop N Cuts Funky Labels insert die with the Sizzix Funky Labels Framelits for my sentiment. I also added another of the owls from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps to my card.
Here is another view of the inside of my card.
