Tucan of a Color Challenge




Love from Lizi is hosting a lovely color challenge on her blog to go with this month's Card Kit! And the colors are so bright and bold--just like this kit!

I chose to use this super vibrant paper with the Tucans on it, and pair it with the incredible Tucan die that came in the kit! The Tucan paper was too busy by itself so I cut a rectangle stitched die to cut a more subtle paper, matted on the dark green paper from the kit.


I cut the die-cut 3 times, from black, red and yellow so I could inlay the different colors. I added clear Wink of Stella over the body of the bird to make it look more like feathers. Then I added clear Nuvo drops over the beak.






For finishing touches, I added three rows of bright yellow ribbon behind the panel, and three yellow Nuvo Drops, as well as a simple sentiment on the grey paper from the kit.




The inside sentiment I printed on my computer--a saying from Winnie the Pooh: "Always remember  you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."








Please be sure to head on over to the Love From Lizi blog to see the new kit, and all the great Challenge Cards that the other Design Team members have put up!
