Well, last night we got together online for a little cyber chat with my SU! sistas Sarah B & Siobhan and SU! momma Julie. What a lovely night and to get the ole' creative juices flowing we had a couple of challenges! The first was set by Julie.
The first was a colour challenge... to use Tempting turquoise, Lovely lilac, Gable green and Pink passion. I was a bit stumped at first and thought it was a V.V. hard challenge!! so, I started off by getting all the colours out to see what they looked like together and was pleasantly surprised! they are scrummy together!! a real summer mix and probably one I wouldn't have put together myself, but that's why I like a challenge ;0) anyway here is what I came up with...
Now the first set I thought of when I saw the colours together was this one, "cheers to you" such a great set for summer (and men as it contains a beer jug!) I used my water brush and stampin' marker pens to water colour these little beauties and layered up the accessories on the side of the glasses, here are a couple of close ups. I also stamped the background with versa mark using the orange from "Tart and Tangy"
Now we make these and post at roughly the same time and if you go to see Julies blog sometime in the next few days, you will see that, not for the first time, we have both made very similar cards!! very freaky (in a good way :0)) ! LOL !!!
For our second challenge, which Sarah set, we had to make something with the last set we bought and it was NOT to be a card!! Now if you read my blog you will know I don't do a lot of "other" things, I tend to stick to cards ;0) so I was actually quite excited to make something else and I had a quick look through my (underused lately) dies. I found this frame which is actually a Christmas one (has holly with it) and made a bookmark for Zo to take on holiday with her, she was thrilled with it this morning!
Supplies used were Pink Passion card, "Tart and Tangy" stamp set, Bold Bright marker pens, Short Order Alphabet, ribbon from stash. As you can see I went with similar colours as the first challenge as I liked them so much!
I hope you liked my little insight into the great fun to be had being a demo and if you would like to know more please contact me for more details,
Have a good rest of the weekend,
Hugs Sarah-Jane xx
