Challenge Blog – 21/08/2016

This weeks challenges were both to use certain sets of colours and I must admit, I found it a challenge!

For both I chose to play with the Thoughtful Branches set.

This was the challenge set by CAS Colours and Sketches:

I cut out trees in ‘sweet sugarplum’ and ‘chocolate chip’, and then swapped the frames and trees:


They look quite different don’t they? Which do you prefer? I used the blossom stamp all over the third card front to create a pattern:

For the Global Design Project #GDP049 I carried on pattern making to produce 2 quite different cards. I love that it’s hard to tell what the stamps are ‘meant’ to be!

These are the colours they set:


And here are my cards:


Here are other people’s designs


If you want to make some cards like this, why not join me for a class?

Remember that the thoughtful branches bundle is only available until the end of August, so order now to avoid disappointment!

    Wow what beautiful cards and I love the way you have used the stamps as backgrounds rather than just as petals or leaves. I am inspired 😃
