Today, I am going out of my comfort zone to enter new challenges. I have looked at many and decided that I just needed to give it a try. The first one is for
Dynamic Duos. Their challenge is for two colors that remind be of my favorite football team, The Packers. Since I live in Wisconsin, and I own a share of this team, I thought of them, but football does not easily interpret into a card, so I did this one.
The two colors to be used are, Summer Starfruit and Gumball Green. Since I did not have those, I used So Saffron and Wild Wasabi. I Embossed the panel with a swiss dot folder and colored it with the So Saffron. Did the same with the green panel and layered both over black. Used my Big Shot to cut out some swirls and then heat embossed the flowers with clear and colored that back with the Wild Wasabi. Next time, I think that I would use black or white embossing powder.
The next challenge is Just Us Girls. 196
This is the first time I have ever tried to do a sketch challenge. Here is the sketch.
This card was a little harder, but I used coordinating paper from Stampin Up. The circles are all embossed with different folders and sponged with different colors. I used dies for the flourishes on the corner and the sentiment. Well, It took a while, but I got it. I think that I maybe doing more of these challenges. A fun accomplishment.
Thanks for looking,
