Wacky World Card Making Day Challenge

Thursday, October 6, 2011

Hi Friends! In honor of World Card Making Day earlier this month, Flourishes issued a wacky color challenge: find a picture of your favorite animated character and be inspired by the colors. This was a fun challenge, and it was so easy to know which character I was going to go with. My favorite animated character is...

If you haven't seen this movie, well...you should. I won't even tell you how many times I've seen it! It's a really funny movie, but I like the Megamind character (the big-headed blue guy) more than the actual story. He's the "bad guy" but only because he likes playing the role. I won't say any more. It would spoil the movie for you.

So, for my Wacky Megamind card, I used blue, green, black, purple, and pink. The blue and black is obvious. The not-so-obvious: green for his eyes, and pink and purple for his cheeks and ears. Isn't he just adorable!

The layout is from the September 2011 Card Maps. I chose the word "Hello" for the sentiment because of a scene in the movie where Megamind answers the phone and says "Olow" (hello, backwards...sort of). Kind of clues you in about how clueless he is about even the simplest things. It's cute. Anyway, here's the inside of the card.
