COLOUR CREATE CHALLENGE and HIGH HOPES SNEAK PEEK DAY 2
I hope you are enjoying the High Hopes Sneak Peeks. I have another one for you today along with the Colour Create Challenge.
This weeks Colour Create Challenge is brought to you by "ME". I am really living up to my name with this one....it's a pretty wacky challenge......but I hope you will like it.
The inspiration for this challenge came from a poster my daughter gave me...she knows only too well how I love vibrant colours and of course Johnny...lol!!
So my challenge is....."Use a white card
and choose at least 2 colours from
the poster. The optional extra is
"any element from the poster....
gems, pins, ribbon, feathers etc".
The sponsor this week is "Wink Wink Ink".
The images I am using are from "Suzy Toronto" ......"Forever Friends" and "Flower Border".
I decided to make an Easel Card.....but this one has a twist!! I made it into a photo display.
I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. The pearls are made with Ranger white enamel and I added beads to the flower centers and red earrings. I used my MS punch for the border.
To make the photo display I cut several extra pages an 1/8" smaller than the white card backing piece. I used my Zutter to cut the holes and bind them. It's actually no different than making the card front....just has extra pages behind. I was worried it would be too heavy but it stands up just fine.
Be sure to stop by the Colour Create Blog as my fabulous Teamies have rose to the challenge in a big way and designed some amazing creations for you this week!!!
I hope you will have time to play along with us.....I really can't wait to see what you all come up with!!!!
HIGH HOPES SNEAK PEEK....DAY 2
Welcome back for another High Hopes sneak peek....just getting you ready for tomorrows Blog Hop and Release. I hope you will be hopping along with us as there are some awesome prizes up for grabs.
The adorable image and sentiment I am using are "Little Girl Bear Hugs " and "Love Pours".
I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I added stickles to flower centers and dots. The flowers were punched with my Ek Success retro flower punch and the hearts are from my MS heart border punch. I added glossy accents to the hearts and layered them. I also added some flat backed pearls. The DP is from Basic Grey Sugar Rush.
