So...usually I post my card for the Colour Me...! challenge on Monday morning, just before the linky deadline. But this morning, I had an eye appointment. I intended to make a card last night and post, but I had no stamping mojo. I just watched a bunch of "The Next Food Network Star" episodes on demand!
However, since I had done 7 of these challenges in a row (ever since I found this challenge blog) I didn't want to lose my momentum. Plus, to go along with my personal goal of completing every 2014 SCS Color Challenge, I decided I would go back and do the Colour Me challenges, which started on January 1st. So, here is the card I should have posted this morning, plus cards for the first 2 challenges.
My first card is a bit blah, because I was trying to get it done before my doctor appointment. That didn't happen, but I had several elements taped down already. I did not want to start over! I still don't have any soft sky card stock. I thought about using bashful blue, but decided just to use the ink. I wish I had kept this fun flower from SU's "Mixed Bunch" a solid color, and add a center piece like I did with the other. Hmmm...oh well. The sentiment is from "Whimsical Words." I ran the whisper white through my Big Shot, using the Petals-a-Plenty Folder. And I was happy to have a chance to use this elegant eggplant polka dot ribbon.
Next, I have a card for the 1st Colour Me...! challenge.
I stamped with both "Extreme Elements" and "Extreme Skateboard." The sentiment is from "On Your Birthday," punched with the small tag. And look...I used bakers twine, AGAIN. Love this stuff!
Finally, I have a card for the 2nd Colour Me...! challenge, featuring melon mambo and marina mist. My main neutral is (obviously) basic black.
When I saw the color combo, I instantly though of this ribbon, which I ordered off the SU clearance rack a while ago. Both spools were unopened. Took care of that! The melon mambo DSP is a scrap from some Sale-a-Bration...I didn't even cut it. Must.Use.My.Scraps! The sentiment is from"God's Blessings." To add more depth, I added a layer of basic black that is embossed with the diagonal strip embossing folder.
I think it will be fun to see if I can catch up with the rest of CMCC posts! It took me a while to catch up with SCS color challenges...but I'm up for another personal goal! I think I will have to start doing my Colour Me cards earlier, so I can post "in bulk" again.
Thanks for stopping by!
