colour challenge at The Outlawz is ORANGE, GREY and CREAM. The colour combo is inspired by the photo on the right.
The first thing that came to my mind when I saw the colour combo was the "Flyers of Philladelphia". This colour combo screams sport team colours. A friend's birthday is coming up and it is a tradition to make a card that somewhat makes fun of him. Last year I made a card with a fire fighter ready to hose down a fire with the following words in big letters: "Call 911, I just saw a big fire". Inside, a guy holding a cake with hundreds of candles, saying: "Nevermind, it's just your birthday cake."
My friend has gained some weight lately and we are trying to encourage him to be eat better and exercise more. He is a young guy, single and has his whole life in front of him. We want to make sure that he will enjoy a long life by making healthy choices. He has a great sense of humour and I know he will have a good laugh and maybe, just maybe, this will be enough to get him off the couch and into the gym.
This cute image is by M. Duy. I found it by googling "Couch patato Coloring Book" and it is located at http://www.coolcarl.com/page/page/5288136.htm. I had a great time colouring this image which offers so many little details. I don't know who made the paper. It is orange and grey and has sport team names on it. The #1 tag is from a school tag set I bought a long time ago at the Dollarama (just love that store).
Here are the Copics I used to colour this card:
Couch: C3, C6, C9
Patato: E53, E55, E57
Skin: E000, E00, E02
Hair and Coke bottle: E71, E74, E77
Pillow, bag of chips and pops: YR12, YR16, YR18, YG05, YG07, YG09
Runnig Shoes and box of cookies: B000, B02, B06
Thanks for stopping by my blog and checking out my card! I hope you will be inspired and play along in The Outlawz Tuesday Color Challenge. You have the entire month of January to complete each of the challenges!!
