Kay’s Blog Week Takeover – Day 4

I am back! You may cheer!

Now I’m sitting in my living room, which is made a lot more exciting by the multi-tasking challenge of writing this while talking to several different people. Anyways. 🙂

This next card is the result of a battle between me and the color orange. I’ve always had trouble making cards that are the color orange. Big trouble, big huge honking trouble. I can’t make things match, I can’t make it cute. Orange laughs as I fail at yet another card. This is the current score?

Kay – 0
Orange – 1794

But as I present this next card all I can say is… "who’s laughing now, Orange?"

Kay 2
Supplies: Hero Arts stamps, notecard; pop dots; Copics

I started by stamping the crab image and the greeting on the white circle, before adhering the white circle to the card. Then I used Copics markers to color in the crab. I then stamped the balloon image and colored it, before cutting it out and pop-dotting it slightly outside of the circle. Then I drew the string of the balloon coming from the crabs claw to the balloon.

Done 🙂

  1. OMG! We are fighting the same battle! You can ask the women in my stamp club who laugh at me as I try to embrace my inner orange! But to you I say “woo hoo!” Brilliant orange card, woman, brilliant!

  2. Orange is also my nemesis in the garden. Do you look good in orange? I find I have better luck working with colors that look good on me (clothes-wise, not stuff left under my nails after card making). I look terrible in orange, but I love your little crab. I have beaten some of my nemesis colors by sneaking up on them through similar shades, like coral or melon as a step toward orange. Gradually I incorporate the enemy into my palette.
