Here it is August and it's time for another challenge from Love To Scrap Challenge Blog
. This month the challenge is: Kidz Rule--make a card or project for a kid.
We have three fabulous sponsors for this challenge:
I was given an adorable set of images and sentiments from Pickled Potpourri and I just had to use ALL of them!! Actually, there were a few more sentiments in the set, but I didn't use them. So, I decided to create a little set of cards that can be sent to kids for various reasons. Here is a picture of the entire set:
I used the same layout for each card and used scraps of paper for the patterns down the left hand side. They needed something to add a little bit of pizzazz, so I use a spectrum noir marker I used in the image and colored a strip of white cardstock to insert between the paper and the image panel. By using the spectrum noir marker, I was able to match the strip perfectly to the colored image. So, here is a close up of each card:
We have an orange striped cat, so I colored this one up to match him. I added a small clear rhinestone to the center of the pinwheel.
With, the flower, this image seemed a little more girly to me, so I used pink tones and patterned paper and added a clear rhinestone to the center of the flower.
And the cute little penguin. At first I had him floating in the air as if he were being pulled up by the kite, but since the other images all needed to be grounded (at least in my opinion) I decided to ground this guy as well, and I think I like it better this way.
Like the penguin, I first had the bear floating off in the air, but grounded him, as well, to go with the other cards. I added glossy accents to the balloon for a little fun touch.
And last, but not least, the cute little monkey! Monkeys are my middle daughter's favorite, so this one will probably be going to her at some point.
Aren't these all sooooo cute!! And they were really quick and easy, too. I hope you will get a chance to play along with us this month. I can't wait to see your kid projects!
