OWH: MWT State Flag Color Challenge


OWH Midweek Throwdown Challenge
Color Challenge: Use Your State Flag Colors
Hello from California! Well last week the challenge was make cards for kids, I got just a bit stumped and let pass but when the flag challenge thing popped up...the light bulb went off! I made a card for a child. You know it was the state bear that got me going. So there we have it colors and a child card...all good:)
The main image was stamped then cut out. Double stamping in two different color inks for the grass made it look fuller. Then a bit of copic maker to fill the blank spots.
Image Stamp: PTI/ Baby Button Bits; Hero Arts/ CL379 (Grass)
Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp/ Talk Bubbles 2
Cardstock: Neenah
Punches: Stampin Up / Small Heart; McGill/ Mini Star
Ink: Memento/ Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves
Marker: Copic/ YG93
Happy Crafting
Barbara

Adorable card! I love how you mimicked the state flag but changed it up to make it a cute kids card.

I love it!! Having grown up in California, I knew instantly what state your card was done after. I agree with Kristie, your little spin on it is great!

Very nice card! I see you had more colors to work with than I did (waaah). But I love the way you turned that bear into something adorable.

You did a fab job with our California flag colors! I cheated by leaving off the green...But I used a sweet bear! Nice job.

Your card is adorable! I'm from California - now residing in Washington - and I miss seeing the California flag. The way your card mimics the state flag is really clever - love everything about it.

What a fun card- and your grass looks great! so nice to see such a variety on the Califoria flag from all the OWHers from Ca!! Your bear is so sweet- even as an adult I would love to get this card too!
