October Sketch/Colour Challenge

Published by under cards,challenges

The first of our EurekaStampers team challenges got under way this month, and they are so much fun!

What a great way to step out of your comfort zone and try new colours, new designs and new techniques.

This one was designed by Juliana. The challenge: To use OLD OLIVE, MORE MUSTARD, BRAVO BURGUNDY and VERY VANILLA in the layout pictured on the left.

 

And this is my version:

This card gave me a great excuse to use my Earth Elements buttons (not that I need one LOL). I set myself my own little challenge of using a stamp that hasn’t seen ink for a while. This one is from Wild Rose, which is a great 2-Step stamp set. The bottom layer of the flower was stamped in Bravo Burgundy, but I ‘stamped off’ first on to scrap paper so that it was lighter. The outline – part 2 of the 2-step process – was stamped in full-strength Bravo Burgundy. 

The tie in the buttons is made from the edge/binding sliced from a small piece of Bravo Burgundy grosgrain ribbon. I just love love love how everything is co-ordinated with Stampin’ Up!… the cardstock, inks, buttons, ribbons, etc. Since I started using SU products, I haven’t worried about having leftovers or unused bits and pieces after a project is finished, because I know I can use it to match beautifully in a future project.

Want to see what the other girls in our team came up with? Team members can check out the gallery. Not yet a demonstrator? I would love to have you as part of my team! In addition to the 20% instant income (discount on product) there are many other benefits like taking part in team challenges LOL!!

‘Til next time,
      happy stamping!
