Colour Create DT Challenge 80 & Papercraft Star Callenge Sketch 63

This is a very exciting challenge! Colour Create Challenge 80 is including the option of applying for a new DT opening. Adding TEXTURE to the colour challenge is the indicator you want to apply for that opening. I chose to combine this challenge with the sketch challenge 63 at Papercraft Star.

So, without further ado, here is my creation of the combined challenges.


You will note the green I used is not quite like the green in the challenge photo, but is the closest I had to it. (The lighting also changed the colour a bit.)

This is my first attempt at the fan folding technique and I love the effect and texture it adds to the card. The green is embossed using the Cuttlebug and Spellbinders Impressionabilities, and the sentiment medallion was created using the Spellbinders Fancy Tags II. I cut two tags, cutting the oval center out of one of them for the sentiment, and took the outter fancy part, cut it into two, and added it to the full 2nd piece at the top and bottom of the Fancy Tag backing. I then attached the fan folded strips behind the sentiment piece and glued it on top of the Fancy Tag backing. Taking a couple of lime green pearls I attached them at the two peaks of the oval.

With the embossed green, the fancy tag and the fan folded strips, a lot of tactile and visual texture has been added to the card. Is it too much? I guess I'll have to wait and see what the Colour Create Design Team has to say. I would sooooo love the opportunity to work with the team on the fun and inspirational challenges to come. I'm sure many of the entrants would love to have the opportunity as well. There are some great designs being entered. Good luck to us all, and happy crafting! Thanks for coming by today and leaving your comment.
