Colour Challenge #270

A new month brings back another of our loyal and fabulous Sponsors.
We are delighted to welcome back 


Thank you Bev!

Fabulous stamps so do check them out!
(Chrissie used the fab Uniko Gerbera this week!)

We have another Guest Designer with us this week and we are delighted to welcome Liz to join us. She is a frequent contributor to our challenges and often visits other participants, so we hope that you will give her a warm welcome!
Our challenge this week is

White space but not  WHITE 

White Space
 An area of the card which has no image, layer or embellishment.
This can be any colour dependent upon the colour of the card blank.
Including or leaving white space is the one most difficult thing for many crafters new to Clean and Simple card making. So be brave and stop adding things to your creations before it's all used up. We will be looking specifically for areas of white space on your submissions, but this time of course we don't want it actually to be white!

(Maybe we should have called it USE  A COLOURED CARD BASE!)

On looking at the thumbnails of some of the cards which are being submitted for this challenge, it seems that some participants don't quite understand the meaning of 'White Space' ! In this case it's not merely a coloured background, but an area of blank base card with no design or patterned paper. Sometimes a large piece of paper or card can be used to change the colour of the front of the card as a couple of our DT have done, but a large proportion of it should be unadorned!
We hope this clarifies things a little!
We hope you will enjoy our examples and visit our blogs to find out how they were made and see our additional cards.

We hope you enjoy this one, if you are unsure of our rules do check out the Guidelines at the top, as entries not adhering to them may sadly be deleted.

    Your inspiration cards are gorgeous, thank you.

  9. Hi Chrissie, thanks for your feedback. I did wonder if my background wasn't quite correct and agree it's a bit busy with the script background (I've re-read your guidelines ... oops!). I'm happy to delete it from this challenge and, if I may, re-enter again later in the week? (#25 Creative Chooke) Helen

  15. It is obvious that half of the people online talking about having the blank atm card are not real as i have tried getting this with all seriousness from several companies and i have paid my money to them without me getting the card and it was so frustrating until i came in contact with davidbenjaminltd@outlook.com who just in 2 days after i applied with them and submitted my details i card was delivered to me and its effectiveness was just as i read about it. I am using this medium to spread the good news and direct those who are serious about getting this card to the right company. Seek no further but contact davidbenjaminltd@outlook.com
