ROYGBIV Octobr 2016 Designer Challenge

Good morning friends

It's time for Karen Burniston's Designer Challenge, and this month it's: "ROYGBIV" - It's the monochromatic challenge but YOU pick your color from any of the colors of the rainbow. Make a card featuring predominantly Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo or Violet.

For last months Designer Challenge, Karen Burniston made the most amazing Twist Circle Panel Pop-Up card, with inspiration from her cousin Jessica. These Pop-Up panel cards have taken the paper crafting world by storm so I was pretty excited that she had come up with a way to make this type of card with a Pop-it Ups DIE instead of complicated measuring or template. There is a link to Karen Burniston's card and video at the bottom of my post today.

For my challenge card this month, I chose YELLOW.

The front of my card uses clouds from the All Season's Tree, and the new Labels and Circles. The patterned papers were in my stash, which worked out well. Love using up things from my stash.

I added Stickles around the edges of the clouds, and outlined the scalloped ring and the word 'Hi' with a fine point marker.

Here is a peek at the card as it is unfolding ...

And here it is completely opened up. Amazing how different the Twist Circle Pop-Up looks simply by extending the arms. 

To create the large sun, I used the Circles and Labels set, and the rays are the triangle banners from the Anita Frames Pop-Up. I lightly doodled on each one then tucked it under the circle edges.

It's so much fun decorating all the little panels!

The first panel has Lucky the Rabbit. To keep it monochromatic, I coloured his ears, nose and feet with an orange pencil instead of pink.  I stamped words on the second panel and added glittered clouds to the third. The fourth panel has the little yellow woven basket from Props 7 with a heart inside, and a sun from the Oval Pull Card.

Note - because I love my foam tape, I popped the embellishments up. And I like the way that looks! However, it makes for a very thick card when folded up and one that will have to be hand delivered or sent with lots of extra postage. I'll have to remember to keep the images flat on the panels for mailing.

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Designer Challenge team came up with for the rainbow of colours - their blogs are linked on the right. Karen Burniston will have her post tomorrow, Tuesday, on her BLOG.
