I love playing along with The Library Challenge ... I love books ... I love creating cards inspired by books. The Challenge is to create a card inspired by The Cover, The Title, or The Story of the book.
When I stumbled across this gorgeous book cover for Oscar by Mauricio Segura, I e-mailed the challenge to see if they ever take suggestions ... turns out they do, and I'm joining the challenge this week as a Guest Designer.
I loved the composition of this book cover ... the bright colors and how they overlapped and contrasted with the bold black text.
I immediately thought of creating with Distress Oxide Inks (Abandoned Coral, Squeezed Lemonade & Twisted Citron). I looked for a solid image like the piano, but instead settled on bold solid words from Cas-ual Fridays Bomb Diggity Stamp Set. I flipped the coral word upside down like the piano and overlapped the yellow. My MISTI makes getting those solid colors stamped so easy.
Next I added black bold sentiments where the title, authors name, and translator information are located on the cover. I finished with a Tim Holtz #hashtag to turn this into a birthday card.
I hope you'll come join the challenge ... I'd love to stop by and see how the book cover inspired you.
