Shades of you!



We have another fun challenge for you at StampInsanity this week. Beth has asked us to create a card in shades of our favourite colour. Now, if you ask me what my favourite colour is, it's purple. Automatic and un-thinking, I love it. BUT, a few of the Groovy Gals had also chosen purple as their favourite colour and, when it comes to cards, for some reason if I can't use other colours, I totally totally love teal. So I decided to go a teal/turquoise route and this is what I came up with. I have to admit, I'm really pleased with this one :) Image is Lilith by StampInsanity and papers are Broken Dreams by Crafty Chaos Designs.
Here are the challenges I'll be entering:
Stamp with Fun - followed the sketch
Creative Cowgirl - turquoise and black or brown
Tuesday Morning Sketches - use metal
Paper Playtime - use the word "love"
Theme Thursday - love
Paperplay Challenges - use a black base
Cute Card Thursday - 123 recipe (1 image, 2 papers, 3 hearts)
Aud sentiments - love sentiment
Pile It On - anything goes
Lexi's Creations - say it with love
Penny's Challenge - anything goes
Crafts and Me - Monochrome
