2015 Hope You Can Cling To challenge #1
HYCCT1501A - Whatever the Weather
And so we begin. This is the first of 3 challenges on "opening day".
Challenge: Make a card representing your LEAST favorite weather condition.
Well, I have to say even though I live in the mid-west, my least favorite weather is winter, more specifically when it is COLD out side... which around here, doesn't always come with snow.
I created my card at our group's Stamp Chat Swap session.
Stamps: SU Happy Scenes
Ink: Garden Green,
Other: Softly Falling SU Embossing Folder, SU Hearth & Home Framelits dies, Liquid Applique White
HYCCT1501B - Lend a Hand
Challenge: Hands are the inspiration for this challenge. (1) Use your fingers to apply a coloring medium on your card (try fingerpainting, use a fingerprint to start an image, etc). (2) Trace your hand on a card and color creatively in or around it or (3) Use an image with a hand visibly displayed in it.
I used my finger to "sponge" the leaves and grass.
Stamps: Sheltering Tree
Ink: Early Espresso, So Saffron, Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie, Garden Green
HYCCT1501C - Split the Difference
Challenge: My challenge to you is a call to split the difference ... respect and honor for the pain and difficulty with an overwhelming appreciation for the by-products of the hope and joy. A full card front scene, split into two with a sentiment strip.
As part of our girl's Stamp Chat Swap group, we made this card. I don't recall the details, but I thought it went well with this challenge. It's a full front scene that is split with a sentiment strip.
