My Favorite Things Summer School-Lesson #8: Primary Colors

Happy Wednesday! Just a quick post to show you a card I created for today's Summer School Lesson at the My Favorite Things Blog. Today's lesson was Primary Colors.

The lesson video showed blending of primary color inks together to make a third color. Here is the card I created.

First I stamped the cup cake image with red, yellow and blue dye ink onto a piece of white card stock. I then die cut the panel with a Blueprints die and adhered it to a piece of Red Hot A2 top folding card.

Next I die cut the word happy four times out of white card stock. I then shaded the blue, red and yellow dye ink with an ink blending took across the top. I then glued the colored sentiment on top of the white die cuts to give the word dimension. I then adhered the word to the front of the card. To give the die cut a bit of pop, I covered the "happy" with clear Wink of Stella.

I then die cut a banner out of white card stock. I blended blue dye ink over the top and stamped the "happy birthday" sentiment over it in black. I adhered the banner using foam adhesive to the front of the card.

My last step was to adhere white and primary colored sequins around the sentiment in a random way.

Primary colors scare me so this was a kind of difficult card for me to create. However, it was fun to shade.

Again, I am entering this for the My Favorite Things summer school.

I thank you for stopping by tonight. Have a great night!!

This turned out great! I think I shy away from primary colors some times because often my card just looks too...young? for my intended recipient, but I like what you made. Your card is fun, bright, and not that a child wouldn't like it, but looks great for an adult! I don't have the bandwidth to see the videos on MFT.. darn.
