Today Jewels picked the colors for the Loonie Stamper Challenge #14. And, man, was she ever mean (*wink*). The colors are all very beautiful, but if you follow my blog at all, you will know that I tend to use 2 colors most of the time...and even have trouble using 3 colors...but 6...YIKES!!!
Well, I decided that it is a challenge, afterall...so I decided to "go for it". Actually, I laid in bed all night wondering what to do, going through different techniques, or thinking of different layouts that could incorporate 6 colors!! Then, as I sat down this morning at my craft table, this idea came to me!!
I decided to make a Postcard card. It doesn't open but I put some vanilla cardstock on the back to write on. And while I like the end result, I realize that I didn't actually follow the challenge!! You see, Jewels asked us to use a vellum or acetate cardbase and as you can see....I don't even have a cardbase!! How could I actually forget one of the main points of the challenge...sheesh!! And, also, as you can see, I also used a Vintage Cream color (althought it happens to be Very Vanilla) which was not part of the challenge. I sure did screw this one up, hey!! Well, I'm going to post this one and if I have more time today, I'll try it again!!! ETA- Okay, after reading a few of the Loonie Girls' blogs, I might have done even more wrong with this challenge. Now, I think we were supposed to pick one or both the the family colors...or something like that...sheesh, I have to read a little more carefully!!!
Supplies: Stamps-Remember (Papertrey Ink); Paper-Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate (all Papertrey Ink), Very Vanilla, Always Artichoke (Stampin' Up!); Ink - Chocolate Chip (Stampin' Up!); Other-Pure Poppy twill (Papertrey Ink), leaf punch (Punch Bunch).
Thanks for dropping in for a visit!! Give this real challenge a try yourself, and leave a link if you do!!! Donelda
