Challenge Motivation

I worked on a couple of challenges this evening and I am glad I did.  I wasn’t feeling real motivated to stamp, but I sat down with the challenges and worked through my lack of mojo.  The results aren’t too bad.

The first card is for Vicki’s Monday Mania Challenge.  I used the circles and colors from the challenge picture to inspire my card.

Stamps - Hero Arts; Inks - ColorBox Fluid Chalk (Dark Brown, Dark Olive, Ice Blue, Creamy Brown), Cardstock - Bazzill

Supplies: Stamps - Hero Arts; Inks - ColorBox Fluid Chalk (Dark Brown, Dark Olive, Ice Blue, Creamy Brown); Cardstock - Bazzill

The next card is for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge.  The colors are:  Barely Banana, Ruby Red, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie and Certainly Celery.  It was definitely a challenge trying to find a way to incorporate all of these colors, but I decided to go with a fun, colorful umbrella in the drink!  With that and the card layers and squares, I was able to get all of the colors on the card without it being too busy.
Stamps - DRS Designs; Inks - Adirondack (Lemonade, Cranberry, Sunset Orange, Lettuce, Aqua), Cardstock (Bazzill, ColorMates)

  3. Oh my gosh, I love this card…so cool & refreshing! But I am sad to see your little girl gone! She brought a smile to my face each time I checked out your blog.

  5. I came here from a link from Vicki and kept looking. I really like your first card and might be cardlifting it. Not the colors but I’ll do the design! I really like it!
