Working on challenges seems to be sparking my creativity. With some crafting time this weekend I picked three challenges and attempted to pull them all together into one card. Not only did I meet my goal, but I actually created two different cards for the same set of challenges.
I LOVE the colors in the Dude Time Doodles inspiration challenge, and I seem to be different than most of the card makers whose blogs I visit, since masculine cards don't overwhelm me. (maybe it's because I'm not a frilly, flower person myself...)
The Truly Scrumptious Challenge 45 sketch looked interesting, and I tend to struggle with multiple layers so I figured this would stretch my thinking a bit.
And last, but not least, going on a safari is on my dream list; so how could I pass up the Pixie Dust Studio challenge of a safari theme? I have a few stamps that fit the bill (of course) - is it possible that someone dreaming of an African safari would not have such stamps??
I wanted to try another in the vertical format, so I used the scraps from the first card on a second one:
My camera seems to be acting up - couldn't get it to stop cutting the edge off of the second card...
Thanks for visiting~
