Hope your week is and has been productive thus far. Mine has been busy. I like busy weeks because by the end of it I have this awesome sense of accomplishment that nothing can compare. However, with busy weeks comes little creative time and with so many awesome challenges out there one literally has to have a calendar not to miss them. So this one was a hurry, hurry, rush, rush!!!! I almost missed it. Did you girls get yours in? We have till today 11:59pm to submit our take of this lovely color challenge with hearts hosted by none other than the Embellish Magazine crew. I love there challenges. It's been a while since I've participated and boy how I've missed it.
If you've never participated in a challenge I encourage you to do so. Why? Because it'll take your creative abilities to the next level :)
Now here are the colors. Aren't they just fabulous? I'm not one to be found playing with red or black much but I must say I love the elegance it adds to any card.
Now for my take on this challenge. The card I created is as usual simple. In my opinion simple is good as long as your comfortable with a minimalistic approach. You don't want your card to be too simple that it lacks *design*-that would not be good. Whether you like to create layered, all dressed up cards or simple designs the key is balance.
Here's a close up so you can see the thin strip of glittery goodness :) To create it I simply cut out a strip of red cardstock and added garnet glitter (Martha Stewart's). *The cardstock is pink- lighting has been awful and my color editing abilities... we won't go there ;)
That's it for now. Unfortunately I didn't meet the deadline for Dawn's color challenge :( But that's okay I'll just have to write these challenges on my calendar so I don't miss them :)
Hope you found something worthy of inspiration here today.
