There's a new challenge out there. It's called Dynamic Duos and it's hosted by the lovely Lesley of Always Playing with Paper. Here's the scoop on this challenge.
This weeks challenge is
Each week we will have two colours for you to use to create a card, scrapbook page, craft or digital project. Only the two colours, otherwise known as "The Dynamic Duo", may be used for your project. Neutrals such as black, brown, white, vanilla, skin colours and kraft are also welcome.
I love blue and green together!
Upsy Daisy has been a well loved set! I've done the flowers in so many colors and layouts. I'm not saying that I'll never use them again, because they'll be on my retired shelf and I don't mind pulling out the retirees.
The layout for this card is from Ariel's retrosketches challenge. I've loved all the sketches she's posted, but don't always get to use one. I'm so glad I got to use this sweet sketch.
After stamping, I went back with the fine point of the marker and added faint outlines to the petals and colored the centers of some of the daisies with Limeade. It still has a soft watercolor effect.
A piece of DSP left over from Sale-a-bration was a perfect backdrop to this design. (Do you think they picked the colors from this paper.)
Do you see that scalloped edge on top of the design piece? I decided I needed something up there and did some paper piercing. I had already put the pieces together and had to pierce from the back in order to get the line straight. I know now that you really need to pierce from the front! It badly needed a coverup. I had this scrap of embossed Adorning Accents Edgelit scallops and with just a little tweaking it covered it up beautifully. This is one case of a boo boo turning out better than planned. I'm not telling you about all the plans that went in the circular file.
