Colour Challenge

If ever you find yourself a little short in the inspiration department, a great way to overcome that is to take part in a challenge. What kind of challenge? Well... anything that takes your fancy actually. There are lots of challenges posted weekly or monthly on various internet sites, as well as in magazines and other publications. There are colour challenges, product challenges, theme challenges, sketch challenges... the list is endless! One of my favourite places to get challenged is on Kristina Werner's blog (you'll find the link over on the right hand sidebar) who this week issued a challenge to use the colours in the following picture to create a card:

The card above is what I came up with. And here's a close up of the main part of the design:

Thanks Kristina for the challenge! I find this is a great way to come up with something that you might not have done otherwise. Find a colour combo that you love and challenge yourself!

In case you are wondering the card on this page is made with my new favourite stamp set (well this week anyways) "Baroque Motifs"... Im finding it so easy to use. I used the main swirly stamp as my background, and scalloped the Pumpkin Pie strip with the Slit punch. The whole card came together in just a few minutes. Gotta love that!
