Hidy Ho, crafty peeps!
It's challenge time again over at the Bombshell Stamps Blog!! Today's challenge is the brainchild of our Miss February Pin-up girl Christine!! Her challenge is Red & Gold. So, as you can see, it's a color combo challenge...which means you can choose ANY theme as long as red and gold are the predominant colors.
I chose the FaBuLoUs Koi Tattoo stamp set (it's my fave out of all the Bombshell Stamps). I opted for a golden yellow instead of a metallic gold. But now when I look at this card, I can't stop thinking about Ronald McDonald.
See what I mean??
And... now, I'm hungry.
Back to my card. I colored up the koi with my ever-trusty (would that be "omnitrusty"?) Prismacolor colored pencils and fussy cut him out. I stamped several of the flowers and did the same thing to them. I stamped the sentiment on a strip of cardstock and folded it into a banner. I decided it needed some more texture, so I ran the background strip of red cardstock through a wavy crimper and affixed some netting over the top of it (yeah, it's leftover from some produce I purchased at the grocery store...I'm into recycling ya know). The background is a die cut lattice that I placed over a piece of authentic Japanese Origami paper (which I set at an angle).
