Kristina’s Color Inspiration #39


I didn’t know if I’d have time for Kristina’s color challenge this week — what with going to CHA and all — but I needed a birthday card for someone I’ll see tomorrow so I just had to give it a super quick spin!

Here’s the outside — one of my favorite new Hero Arts woodblock stamps, the Big Mushroom!  I cut the card base to look like a hill…


And here’s the inside — I wrote “heard you’re over the hill! ha!”


And here’s a closeup of the raccoon — another fave!  I think he looks kinda mischievous…


Hope my friend likes it, ha ha ha!

Thanks to Kristina for a another great challenge — I’ve never used those colors together before, but I think I will again!

Supplies:  Big Mushroom, raccoon, message, woodgrain (on the door) and flowers (on the hill) by Hero Arts.  Gems + notecards also by Hero.  Patterend paper by Doodlebug.  Ribbon by May Arts.  Colored pencils by Prismacolor — I used black and red as per the challenge, then went over them with white to blend + soften.  Black glitter glue (on the mushroom dots) by Ranger.

  5. Awesome, Lisa!!! What a clever card. That large mushroom is great. I haven’t made time to do Kristina’s challenge this week.

    One of these days (I know you’re getting ready for CHA), can you explain what type of lighting you have? These photos were not taken with natural light, right? Your photos look so clear. I agree, with Ashley.

  6. Hi Lisa, You are just so talented. I think this one is really cute. I luv those rascally racoons.
