Thursday Design by Candice

Last night I was playing and came up with three different cards, this is the one that I decided to post. I will keep the others for later or for one of my workshops. After looking at it in this post I am thinking that I should have used Mellow Moss and not Sahara Sand, but it could just be the lighting when I took the photo.

Watch for the post on Friday I am going to download the organizer that we will be making on Sunday. There is still space if you are interested.

Wednesday’s Design by Robbie

I am in an Artistic Trading Card swap and the theme this month was ribbon. I created a cute Halloween ATC that I decided needed to be a card. Here is the ATC and the card. I used wire to attach the bat to so that it can be bent and looks like he is flying above Dracula. I also sponged the edge of the purple on the ATC and used a glitter gel pen to highlight Dracula’s eyes and mouth. Some of you lucky people will be getting this card in the mail this week. Sorry to spoil the surprise!

Monday’s Color Challenge

It is Monday and that means it is time for our color challenge. This week we decided that one of us would do a card using the color challenge colors and the other one would do a card using alternative colors. The colors chosen this week were Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, and Sahara Sand. The alternative colors are Vintage Violet, Almost Amethyst, and Sahara Sand.
