JAI #60 - Colour Challenge

There's a new challenge at JAI today - this week it's a colour challenge.  Colours that I like on their own and which look really good together also.  They are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Whisper White and Crumb Cake

I based my card on this sketch I found over at Clean & Simple.  This is what I ended up with.

The oval panel was white, however I got a little excited when using the Tea Stain distressing ink and ended up covering more than I intended.  Never mind, I'm happy with the way it turned out.  I did find adding a sentiment a little hard.  I tried a few differnt things before settling on the 3 tiny tags.  I was also going to use the Very Vintage wheel on the base except I forgot and I stuck the DSP down before I remembered.  Ooops.

Well, I'd best be off - we're heading off to Loch Sport today for our friends 'Shinding' and I have to finish packing.

Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting.

JAI #58 - Tribute to Amanda and Danielle

This week at JAI we are having a tribute to Amanda and Danielle - we have all CASED one of their cards.   I owe a great deal of gratitude to Amanda and Danielle for chosing me to be a part of the JAI Design Team.  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be chosen - THANK YOU BOTH for taking a chance on me.  I have totally enjoyed every minute and I wish you both every happiness and success in your future endeavours.

The first one is one I CASED of Amanda's.  The elements I changed up are the flower and brad, the stamped leaf image and the sentiment, which in hindsight should have been a bit bigger as it gets a little lost.

And this is one I CASED of Danielle's.  The only things I have changed up are the colours, I've used Melon Mambo and Basic Black, and I've added rhinestones instead of pearls.  Why mess with such great original creations!

This was a super fun challenge - the hardest thing was deciding on which cards to CASE.

Hopefully you can all play along this week - I'd love to see which cards of Amanda's and Danielle's you choose to CASE.

Thanks for visiting
