A NEW & exciting Challenge!

Hi Bloggies!

Like most of you … I have been waiting for the Dynamic Duos challenge to begin … and they have kicked off their first challenge with a super colour combo! I love not having too many colours to work with. I struggle with colour balance a little … so DUOs is perfect for me!

I have teamed this colour challenge with my FAV sketch challenge … the latest Freshly Made Sketches #33. I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to use … as soon as I saw this sketch! It worked so beautifully with the colour combo, too! 🙂 Here is what I came up with ….

So … all the stamping is done with ink to rubber using markers. This makes it so easy to get a multi-colour image! I used the large image to create the ‘orange’ panel … and some pretty Spice Cake DSP to create the ‘grey panel’. The phrase image has been created using a mask to overlap the sentiment and the frame images. A great effect! 🙂

Well … it is time to get some work done! You should see my white board … so many little fiddly things to do! And … of course … Gav’s bookwork! I also need to get something for my mother’s day pressies finished (actually … I need to start!!!) So … have a great day … and make sure you pop over to the two challenge blogs to join in the fun and check out the DT samples. They are stunning! Hugs xxx

    Gotta love it when a sketch falls together like that huh?? I do really like this set. So many beautiful things that can be and ARE done with it. ooxx


  4. I just love how you have used your stamped image as one of the ‘panels’ in the sketch … but I’m here to comment on how beautifully you have combined the duo of colours to make such a gorgeous card. Thanks for playing along at Dynamic Duos this week.
