Firstly we must say a huge THANK YOU for all the wonderful comments we received on our Birthday challenge last week, ( prizes will be announced shortly)!
It's such a good feeling to know that our efforts are appreciated by so many of you!
At this point I (Chrissie) must express a HUGE debt of gratitude to the girls on the DT. I don't think that there is another challenge in Blogland where for the most part, ALL the DT have commented on ALL the submissions to their challenges and I know that their creativeness is appreciated by all who check out the blog each week.
This undertaking has not possible without hard work and dedication and it's for this reason that we have decided to extend the number of members on the Design Team so that the load (particularly commenting) can be eased and the commitment spread a little.
We are therefore looking to add two new members to the DT.
If you wish to be considered for such a position, please add (DT) after your name on your submission this week.
Those wishing to apply should
- be comfortable with the CAS genre
- have a personal blog
- produce a sample card for each week's challenge
- comment on a large proportion of the submissions to every challenge
- add additional cards for some of the challenges to their personal blogs
Now on to this week's challenge!
We are back to a
ONE LAYER CARD
and we would like to have you
INCLUDE A STEM
My fuchsia stem, stamped off the page, is a Woodware stamp, coloured with Inktense pencils on kraft card. The sentiment is by Visible Image.
This is a fab digital image of coneflowers from the Wax Fruit Company, coloured with watercolour pencils and blended with a water brush. A little clear Wink of Stella was added over the colour.
The sentiment is computer generated.
Here I've used the floral images from Uniko: Pure Florals Cosmos
and there's a fair bit of masking! 'Love' sentiment is CBS: Say it in Style
and the others are from WPlus9: Sending you Sunshine.
The images are coloured with Zig Clear Brush pens with some wink
of stella and a blob of glossy accents to the flower centres.
is taking break for a couple of weeks
Do remember to leave lots of that all important white space and as with a couple of the DT examples here, don't be afraid to go off the edge of the card sometimes!
We have always encouraged participants to comment of fellow participants entries and we are delighted that so many LIMettes already do this, but if you haven't yet considered this we would urge you to do so...many friendships have begun this way!
The important thing is to have fun!
