A few weeks ago my demo friends at GailForceStampers threw down a challenge to help us find our missing mojo. The challenge was to use the colours from the Kaleidoscope Papers – Tempting Turquoise, Green Galore, Summer Sun, Only Orang, Pink Passion and Pixie Pink – just slightly bright colours. Thank goodness we were allowed white (and only white) as our neutral. I actually made 4, here are my favourites:
This card is 20 cm x 10 cm nope, it is 8.5 ” x 10 cm (finished size) (I think – I do know that it does fit into a DL envelope though). Man I like to make things difficult by using metric & imperial measurements, lol! ( Not really, I used PaperTrey’s Stampers Select which is 8.5 x 11″). I used Butterfly Prints and the coordinating punch, both from the Summer Mini catalogue. I didn’t have orange or yellow bling so I coloured some clear ones with my Copic markers. I’m pretty sure the sentiment is from Trendy Trees but it is stamped in Basic Grey, which was not part of the challenge.
This one is 5 x 5″ (I think) and uses the actual Kaleidoscope papers. I had cut these papers for a different project (that didn’t work) & thought a patchwork would. I think it did. The frame is from PaperTrey’s Borders & Corners Monogram and the sentiment is from PaperTrey’s Mega Mixed Messages. It was punched using the 1-3/8″ SQ punch and I then rounded the corners to coordinate with the frame. This came togther so quickly that I made another 6, all with different frames & sentiments. Again I’ve used Basic Grey – so again I fail to meet the challenge requirements.
Well, that’s all for tonight, I have been busy creating, and have even taken photos. Just have to get around to posting them here. Tomorrow night I have to clean up the ‘studio’ – it is a disgusting mess.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you have a great day/night wherever you may be.
