Spot 2 for The Challenge Guest Designing

Monday, September 14, 2015

It's time for another challenge from The Challenge blog where I am guest designing this month. This week, there is a gorgeous color combo and it's one that I've used before on a few cards because I love the looks of reds and aquas together.

I tried to channel my inner Kay (I was hoping I had one) with my water color background. Needless to say, hers always look much better. But I will try again. I ended up adding the sequins because of course I smudged the ink after I stamped the sentiment. :)  That black Versafine gives a great impression but does not dry quickly.

Oooooh, so pretty! I certainly wouldn't have known about a smudge had you not said anything, so you did great with your sequins. I smiled at your trying to tap into your inner Kay. I've tried to do that as well. I just don't have the same touch. But your watercoloring looks great to me! I really like the teal/aqua color. And it looks amazing with the red. Great sentiment, too. You sure find some good ones to use. :) Hey, did you like that win for the Broncos? Kinda sloppy in some parts, but I'll take it! Have a great week!

I'm late visiting all the team's past cards. This is so beautiful with the watercolor and all those gorgeous flower stamps/dies. I think we've all had mishaps with Versafine here and there. I learned a trick via Stamp Nation to put clear emboss powder over the versafine stamped image to help it not smear. And then sometimes I forget about doing that little trick myself. lol
