Fab Friday Challenge #196

September 1, 2020

I saw a sketch challenge on Tuesday Morning Sketches which was kind of cute and I thought I could adapt it to use the Zany Zebras stamp set.  Then I saw the current colour challenge at Fab Friday and decided to combine the two.  I cut circles from Cajun Craze, Bumblebee and Cinnamon Cider card using the Layering Circles Dies.  I attached the circles to Very Vanilla card and embossed the panel using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.  I attached the embossed panel to scored and folded Cajun Craze card.  I stamped the zebra image from the Zany Zebras stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Cajun Craze ink and cut it out using the Layering Circles Dies.  I cut a scalloped circle from Cajun Craze card using the same dies and attached the image panel.  The whole piece is attached to the card front using dimensionals. I stamped “happy birthday” from the Zany Zebras stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Cajun Craze ink and punched it out using the Classic Label Punch.  I re-inserted the greeting into the punch to cut a “v” notch in one end.  I trimmed the other end square before attaching to a piece of Cajun Craze card, trimmed to match the greeting panel.  The greeting is attached to the card front using mini dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped “wild about you” from the Zany Zebra stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Cajun Craze ink.  I attached a narrow strip of Cajun Craze card behind one long edge of a piece of Very Vanilla card embossed using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder.

I love this card!  Thanks so much to Tuesday Morning Sketches (although I didn’t make the deadline) and Fab Friday for the colour combination.  I probably never would have used these colours together without the challenge.  I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now,

Kris

    Thanks Amy, I don’t usually do colour challenges but this one made me step outside my comfort zone and I love the result.

    Look at that sweet zebra stepping out of the tradition black and white combo! I love him in our fall colors. The embossed texture on the background is really great also! Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!
