The Challenge: Create a card that reflects an "All Occasion" sentiment. Just to clarify this is not the same as "Anything Goes". Some examples of all occasion sentiments are: smile, oh happy day, life is good, just a note, etc. In other words these sentiments aren't tied to a specific occasion or holiday. You could use them for whatever you like.
The Twist: Use the following photo as inspiration for your card. You can be inspired by the colors, textures, whatever suits your fancy.
We are so pleased to have Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps as are sponsor for this week!
One lucky random winner will receive their choice of 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and 1 paper pack! How Awesome is that?
We were provided with some fabulous digital images to work with for our challenge samples. Again, very cool sponsor! I chose to work with an image called "Over da Wall Puppy". He is super cute but, you have to see that for yourself...
I was inspired by all that fancy trim on those pillows. So I knew I wanted to incorporate ribbon in to my card. But, the biggest inspiration I pulled from that photo was the pillow that was Lime Green with the Purple Ribbon. That sealed the deal for me because I had been dying to use the Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder together. My image is colored with a mixture of copics and glitter gel pens. The more I use copics the less I like them but, I'm learning some tricks from friends oh how you can use them with your Prisma Color Pencils and I think that's the route I will be taking. I created my sentiment on the computer by using a phrase that I found in the Urban Dictionary.
I'm thrilled with how it turned out as I don't usually make cutesy cards and I have just the friend to send this too.
I was also inspired by the following challenge blogs:
Our Creative Corner: create a masculine card with non-traditional masculine colors
Tuesday Throwdown: Your favorite color combo
2 Sisters Challenge Blog: use ribbon
