Another day, another challenge, or two.....
I'm enjoying doing challenges as it makes me think a bit differently, gives me some guidance, and in today's case, makes me use colours that aren't necessarily my first choice!
The first challenge is a sketch from Just Add Ink
I wanted a sunny and bright card, so used the Sunny Garden DSP for the side strip, mounted on Pear Pizzazz, and then stamped the words from Strength and Hope stamp set in Poppy Parade and mounted on the same colour card. The gorgeous butterfly from the set is stamped in Pear Pizzazz and cut out and popped onto the card using dimensionals for some definition. I added a few Basic Rhinestones for a bit of bling!
It's the first time I've used this stamp set and I was really pleased with the result.
The second challenge of the night was from The Paper Players website. It was a colour challenge!
Cherry Cobbler, Not Quite Navy, Early Espresso and a neutral, so I picked Very Vanilla.
I've not used these colours before so kept the card nice and simple and used the Cute by the Inch stamp set, this is a level 2 hostess set and as the name suggests, it's so cute!
The Textured Card base is Cherry Cobbler which I really do love. I stamped out three images in the Not Quite Navy and punched out with the large square punch, then mounted on a scalloped square of Not Quite Navy textured card. The fourth image was stamped in Cherry Cobbler and mounted on Early Espresso and attached with dimensionals - gotta love those dimensionals, so handy :o)
Right, time for a sit down, cuppa tea, and a bit of choccy!
I'll be back tomorrow with another Mojo Monday - a happy start to the week :o)
