It's the first Tuesday of the Month! And that means it's TCP Tuesday! AND time for another challenge.
Are you ready? I hope so, because this one is a doozie! When I decided to take over the challenges I wanted to really challenge you. And, I wanted to challenge myself, too!
This month's challenge is a color challenge and more. It's a Neutrals Challenge. I want you to use White, &/or Cream &/or Craft &/or Black and one color. Easy Peasy, right? WRONG! Here is the PLUS part and the challenge. I want you to limit yourself to one patterned paper and 2 layers. (The base is not a layer)
This was a hard challenge for me. But, I thought, what better place to use this chalkboard technique? Jen del Muro first told me about it and now I'm seeing it all over. It's a fun and simple card, but I think it still has a lot of interest. I used our Cloud Border CutUps and the Notecard top from our Toppers CutUps. And the Bunny from our Soar Cling Stamp set.
Julie used the Bear Hugs stamp set for her card. I love how the saying that she used for the background fades away. And her coloring is just stunning.
Wendy went crafty with her card using the Warm Fuzzies stamp set and her frame makes her paper piecing and coloring the star of the show.
Noelle used the Wet Puddle set to create this darling card. The blue just pops against this crafty background.
Now what can you do with this challenge?
Here are the Deets.
