Well, here it is. My first attempt at a Saturated Canary image. Whew! Talk about nerve wracking. I have one more of these and I might, just might, be brave enough to tackle it now. :-)
Our challenge this week at The Kraft Journal is "Color Me Red". Red is definitely NOT one of my favorite colors to use with Copics. You have to be very careful cause it's almost impossible to fix any boo boos.
I created my card using a base of Brown Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and used a sheet of my Basic Grey Picadilly pad. Now almost all of my cards measure 5.5 x 5.5 so most of the time I'm left with a 3/4" L-shaped scrap that hardly ever gets used. I was determined to use it on this card. LOL I cut each side in half and then attached them around the edge of my image panel. Then I used my trusty X-acto knife to miter the corners. Once they were trimmed I added the little black brads to anchor the "frame" and matted the panel with more Brown Kraft and black.
For embellishments I added a Scalloped Grungy Prim Tag stamped with "hi" and a Jenni Bowlin Chipboard Flag piece with a coordinating Flag Banner sticker stamped with the rest of the sentiment. For the flower I used my Retro Flower punches on some Vintage Dictionary pages, wrinkled them up and stacked them with a brad in the center. Last of all I tucked two Jenni Bowlin Garnet stickpins in behind the flower and tag.
You have until 6:00 p.m. EST on Sunday to link up your "red" creations. Don't forget to use kraft paper or a Kraft Outlet product.
