Late Edition: Challenge Submissions

Well, I actually had a little “play” time today.. and had an opportunity to take advantage of the many card making challenges out there… Gosh there are a lot of challenges out there!!!  Challenges are so much fun, and a great way to jump start your creativity weather you are making cards, scrapbook pages, ATC’s or altered art!!  Put on your seatbelt… let’s go for a challenge ride!!

First up… Create with Connie and Mary, following their sketch and combined with the CAS-Tastic color challenge CWC009 which required us to use the colors blue, white and neutral:


Next up, Paper Players Plus #4 PPP4 – Sketch Challenge, LNS Demo Only Challenge – Incorporate an ATC into your card, and Paper Pal Arts #48 – Create an Easel Card:

First, here’s the ATC (Altered Trading Card)


Here’s the card:


And here’s the open “easel card” view:


I love creating vellum butterflies.. they look so real.. the tutorial may be found on my tutorial page here:  Vellum Butterflies.

Tomorrow you’ll see some Mary Englebright type cards… I’d love to know which one you like best!


Pin It!
