WWW Color Challenge Card

Hi everyone by the time you read this the color challenge will be over. Repeat Impressions will have another challenge starting tomorrow. Here is the link http://www.thehousethatstampsbuilt.com/
Here is the card I created using these colors. I just couldn't get things to turn out how I wanted. I had wanted to accent the embossing but I didn't like anything I tried out. Also I finally decided to have a border around the  lady as well as to mat her but now am thinking I should have made her a little smaller.
The card base is Kraft card stock that I must admit I seldom use for some reason. I used a Paper Studio embossing folder but I don't know the name.

I recently bought the pattern pieces stamp by Tim Holtz from a friend. Buying used stamps is a great way to get the stamps you want.  The whole stamp would not fit on a left over cutout from a frame but you don't always have to use the entire stamp. I used Stazon Jet Black ink and fine detail clear embossing powder.

I was trying to decide what to do for this card and had received a email with links to the Dover Sampler. While looking through the samples most of themI already had I realized I had already downloaded this lady in red.. Also I've been itching to use the Tim Holtz stamps I bought. After tracing the lady in the software for my Cameo I did an offset and set the machine to cut using the offset and not to cut my original tracing. I edged her with the Jet Black ink. I also had done another offset and cut that one out of a scrap of Kraft card stock. The lady is pop dotted onto the Kraft mat.

Do you ever do color challenges or challenge yourself to use different colors?

Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!

  1. Ha, use different colours? Me? No way. I'm sticking close to my comfort zone which is why I should partake in these challenges. LOL. Love this card. I don't think the lady is too big.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. :)
