Cutplorations March Challenge

Hi Everyone

its challenge time at CUTplorations again!
This time the inspiration photo gave me a headache....so not my thing I must say. Those dresses - I would not even wear them as a nightgown.... And then I made the wrong card, forgot to use a CUTplorations die... so I had to come up with something else...but I am thrilled with the result - I hope you are too and don't get discouraged in case you don't like the picture either - you can turn it into something you truly love!

Here's the inspiration photo:
image source: Stylecaster

I went with the hideous dress on the left, as you can see. Made myself a background with my cheapo acrylic colors from Michaels and added the negative upper case alphabet die cut (a left over from a previous card) with foam tape. Filled in the HI - also left overs and added the wonderful in black for more uuhmpf.

I hope you play along this month - there are prizes, of course. A random winner can pick any 2 of the word/phrase dies that you the DT used in this challenge. 

And if you feel an order coming on - use code STAMPGIRLCORNELIA to get 20% off
on all stamps, stencils, and dies. on all regular- and sale-priced items in the store.

Linking up with:
Fusion challenge - see picture below ( going with the picture)
Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring challenge - day 2 for me (colored my background)
The Paper Players - die cutting

You got all those glorious colors in the final product...love the use of that negative diecut. The inspiration photo doesn't inspire me much, either. Not a floral and floating fabric kind of female myself. (Enough F's for you?). But I really think you took it in the right direction.

You might have not liked the dress...struggling to myself but I love your card. Great how you popped in the word Hi and the black wonderful sentiment down the side x

Becca Cruger said...

Haha - so you're not a floral print person, huh? Well your take on the inspiration photo is so bright and fun! Thanks for playing along at Fusion.

Well, you took something you didn't care for, Cornelia, and turned it into a cool, graphic and fun card! Have to admit to laughing out loud at your descriptions ... those frocks would not be on my list of must-buys either! Hugs, Anita :)
