I LOVE colour challenges, but I must admit this one's not much of a challenge for me - I'd happily use these colours on all of my cards! (Oh, except for the odd break to make something in red.)
Soooo, I decided to combine the Just Add Ink challenge with a sketch challenge. Those two words send shivers down my spine - I struggle with sketch challenges! They're effective, though, 'cos they challenge me (I do realise this is the idea), and I often do come up with a concept and run with it.
I'm taking part in the sketch challenge over at the Helping Hudson blog. We're aiming to raise a LOT of money for Hudson, so please visit the blog, and join in on the fun. There are FANTASTIC prizes on offer for the winners of each challenge. We have a colour challenge, a sketch challenge and a technique challenge running each week for 3 weeks - check them out here. You can take part in each challenge for a $2 donation; or, if you donate $10 you're able to take part in all 9 challenges over the 3 weeks. Small change, that collectively will make a big difference to this little boy's life! One of this week's challenges is to make a project using this sketch:
and ..... drumroll, please ....... this is what I came up with (just in time for my brother-in-law's birthday, as it so happens):
Stamps: Happy, Happy Birthday Jumbo Stampin' Around Wheel; On Your Birthday
Card: Kraft, Baja Breeze textured, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Sahara Sand and Chocolate Chip stampin' pads
Other: Star Punch,Large Star Punch, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Top Note Die, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, paper snips, Mat Pack and paper piercing tool, dimensionals, sponge daubers
I 'roughed up' the edges of the Scallop Oval, using my paper snips, to make it look a little less 'girly'. I've used debossed Kraft stars, and embossed Chocolate Chip stars, for a bit of contrast.
I'm happy to report, I like this one!
