GREAT NEWS!!!! This post was a winner!!!


Why, hello. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I know you are busy so it mean a lot that you have stopped by. Thanks so much for that. Now, on with the show ......

Today, Im playing along with the TGIF Challenge. Ill be honest - I tend to prefer colour challenges over layout challenges ..... sometimes. This was a challenge. Here is the inspiration;

Additionally, Kylie gave me the challenge of using a particular stamp-set. Challenge accepted! When I looked over at the design teams work, they were all amazing and the colours worked really well, so I was eager to get on to this card. After a few versions, here is the card I came up with;

This is far from the card I had in my mind when I started. The inspiration was someone going scuba diving. The plant life under water is vibrant and full of colours and I wanted to give the impression of it moving in the water. I guess it sort-of does that. lol!

I added a circle from the Neutrals colour set just to tone it down. The super-thin washi tape is from the Accessories pack from the Project Life by Stampin' Up! 'This is the Life' range. It is perfect for the look I was achieving. If you have seen my cards before, you will know that I am a real fan of Vellum. I love how it is 'there, but not really there.' Do you use it?

I used the Aqua Painters for the background, but there wasn't much 'Aqua' used. lol. The sentiment is from the 'Words of Truth' set embossed in white.


Below are the colours used in the project;
