Firstly we would all like to say a huge thank you to everyone who took part in our first challenge, we had an amazing response and really enjoyed looking at all your wonderful creations! I know that some of you thought the colours were a little challenging but you made some wonderful cards and projects.
It gives us great pleasure to announce the winner of our candy giveaway..... congratulations go to Alison from Ali's Space. Please email your details so that we can get the prize sent out to you as soon as possible. We hope you will have lots of fun with your goodies!
We have selected a guest designer at random to join us for Week Three, welcome Mina and thanks for agreeing to play with us next week.
Without further ado here are the details of this week's challenge then:
Please make your card using Peach and Aqua. You can also use cream/white for your cardstock and flesh colours for any images.
There is an extra option available which you can use if you wish, although this isn't compulsory. This week's option is 'DIY flowers', which means not using any pre made, bought flowers on your cards and projects. Here are some ideas which might help:
Stamp a flower onto card and cut it out
Punch and layer flowers
Die cut flowers
Doodle your own flowers
Peel and mount stickers to form a flower
Use shaped petals eg, hearts to form a flower
Make flowers from Nestie shapes
Make a ribbon flower
I'm sure there are lots more ways, please feel free to come up with your own! Don't forget that embossing, distressing, ink edging, etc will all add to the effect and you could add a stamen to the centre. Also glitter, glossy accents, liquid pearl drops might work well. Unusual materials might include tissue paper, vellum, acetate, chipboard...... just a few ideas.
Finally, remember that you are allowed to combine our challenge with any other you would like to take part in during the week. GOOD LUCK!!!
