It's colour challenge week over at Global Design Project #069 and I've already blogged the card I made as my entry. Here's a link if you want to check out the sample cards created by the design team.
Two of the colours were chosen for us and we had a Wild Card which allowed us to choose the third.
I got a little carried away and just continued on creating. What can I say, I was on a roll.
I have snaffled Touches of Texture off my friend so I can have a play and get this set out of my system. Can you see the Delicate Details lacey border? This is one of the free sets you can earn during Sale-A-Bration. Both the lace and the outside of this cared are sponged very lightly with Pool Party which is my third colour choice for this card.
Kindness Matters - an oldie but a goody! Combined with Pun Intended. This card was a bit trickier to photograph because of the star sequin in the camera flash and the silver embossing powder. I needed to angle it just right.
Who doesn't love bees? I know I do. I actually drew this beehive shape to use as a pattern for a felt baby mobile which I made out of hand needled felt so it came in handy when creating my card. This is the first time I've used the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and I could tell straight away it was a lot thicker than our usual embossing folders. Make sure you use the correct sandwich as this baby is very thick. I used tab 1, embossing folder with cardstock inside and a cutting mat on top. Just remember, if it doesn't roll through with ease, don't force it and check your sandwich. The results with this folder are a very textured 3D effect which is very cool.
