Have any of you paricipated in Dawn McVey's Color Challenges? Well, I made a quickie card tonight to add to her list of participants! So, here's my take on Dawn's amazing challenge! My first!
I want to get this posted now so I'll come back later and edit!
Please forgive the poor photo....had to upload using my Blackberry.
EDIT: I started with a Lemon Tart base card and stamped in Dark Chocolate a border of Background Basics: Diamonds. I am so proud of myself! I actually got it lined up right with just a little help from Miss Dawn herself!
I watched her video on stamping backgrounds today and I must say that I DID learn something from it! I agree that lining your blocks and stamps with an exsisting line makes it so much easier! Punching a scalloped border along the center in Aqua Mist and adhering a strip of Dark Chocolate offset the pastel look of that scalloped border. Now, don't you just LOVE how this flower turned out?! I was inspired by Mish to go on a hunt for vintage sheet music! This is actually punched from old elementary clarinet music that I found at my local Goodwill! I used this vintage (1961 copyright) sheet music as my "cream" color in Dawn's challenge. Instead of several layers of flowers as the centers, I just punched several circles in various sizes and stitched on a very large Lemon Tart button! Oh, those buttons! hehe
Thanks for stopping by!
