Color Challenge 1 with Hello Bluebird

Hi friends! We are so excited to announce new monthly design challenges over at Hello Bluebird! Our first challenge is a color challenge. Take inspiration from this gorgeous pastel palette featuring pastel pink, buttercup yellow, mint green, and lavender; perfect for your Spring and Easter projects! A little shout out to my super-talented daughter, Avery, for creating this gorgeous color board!

I was inspired to create a sweet Easter themed card, featuring the adorable critters from Little Painters.

To create my card, I cut a panel of Bristol smooth cardstock to 3 1/2 X 8 1/2" and ink blended the background with Kitsch Flamingo and Spun Sugar Distress Oxide inks. Next, using the Summer Woods Scene Die, I die cut Bristol smooth cardstock (grass, bushes, and treetops), and kraft cardstock (tree trunks). I blended Cracked Pistachio and Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide inks onto the grassy borders, bushes, and tree foliage, splattering with some Mowed Lawn ink (thinned with water) to add some interest. I then lightly inked the kraft tree trunks with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and attached all of the die cut elements onto my pink inked background to create a fun backdrop.

Next, I stamped the images from Little Painters, colored with Copic markers, and die cut with the Little Painters Die.
Additional stamp sets used:

Copic Colors:
Bunnies: W5, W3, W1, W00, RV02, RV10, RV00
Chicks: Y18, Y15, Y13, Y000
Hedgehog: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50, E0000
Pinks: RV02, RV10, RV00
Greens: G02, G00, G000
Lavender: V04, V12, V01, V000

I then arranged the color images onto my card, attaching with foam tape for dimension. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from Spring Gatherings in black ink to complete my card.

Be sure to head over to the Hello Bluebird Blog for the Challenge Rules and details (for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the Hello Bluebird shop), and more inspiration from the design team!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I can't wait to see what you all create for our #hellobluebirdcolorchallenge1
