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

  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.
