The Challenge

Hi Everyone,

seriously did you think I could bypass that stunning inspiration photo from The Challenge???
No way!!!


Just took me a while to think how to convert the image into a card.
Today I figured it out. Took that fun die cut from Poppy Stamps, did some sponging and inlaid die cutting. I could not settle on a sentiment, so I left it blank, for future use.



Here is the photo:

You did not think, that I would throw out the negative die cuts and those little pieces, did you? No, of course I made a second card with it:


Here I added a little THANKS in the corner, its from CASual Fridays.


Also linking up with:
 Naughty or Nice - over the rainbow
Fusion challenge - got inspired by the rainbow umbrella 

Happy Stamping!

Fabulous take on the challenge - I love the CAS design and the bright colours. I like leaving cards blank too, you never know when one might come in handy! Xx

So I thought that this challenge you will definitely not let go of :-) These colors are after your the hallmarks! I'm glad to see your unusual interpretation of the images. I was wondering how did the mixing of colors in a mixed area, but as I had read post to the end everything became clear :-) Thank you for the inspiration.
hugs,
