I have a quick post today to show you a little card I managed to make earlier this week. It is along the lines of a creation by the lovely Teresa Kline,
Here it is, isn't it fresh. I don't know why one card strikes me more than another, but I just loved the overall effect of this one. I think I love the colours against the Kraft card - its like flowers upon the earth and so perfect for the sentiment. Don't you agree? Here is a link to Teresa's blog for anyone who has never visited her (the card below is directly linked to the post on Teresa blog).
I am not 100% happy with the finished card, I feel I failed myself alittle as the idea in my head did not come out completely on the finished article. I wanted the pink to be less bright, even though this is called baby pink. I was really looking for a very soft and muted pink but had nothing that pale in my stash.
I was trying to create a card that was 'almost white' with hints of colour to just distinquish the diecuts and flowers but not make them overpowering. Nevermind, you now have the gist of my idea.
So with that in mind, we have our Challenge (at last).
The Challenge is to create a papercraft item with the theme 'Almost White'.
Your main colour must be white or Almost white (Ivory) and must have no more than two other colours with one being of a larger percentage than the other. (eg. My card is White with secondary colour Pink and a tiny touch of green in the flowers).
I do hope that makes sense, I am very tired now and am getting a little dim witted (now, now, no sarcasm please, I know I am not the brightest spark at the best of times...LOL!!) Please think about it and see if you can find the time to enter something.
I don't like lots of rules but just ask that everyone enters something new and never seen before today in blogland. Each participant can enter up to two different papercraft items (eg. one card and one tag OR one tag and one box etc.) Two of the same type of papercraft item is NOT allowed (eg. two cards is a no no!).
So there you have it, I do hope you will all join in and play along. I will be back later today to put up the prize (or prizes) and the linky for your entries.
