One of the benefits of blurfing is discovering new challenge blogs. However, that's also one of its down-sides, as my challenge list runneth over. One way to combat this is to (1) be very selective in what I choose to tackle each week, and (2) combine challenges.
This card does the latter: it combines a new sketch challenge with a color challenge. I got the sketch from a newly-discovered-by-me* blog called Match The Sketch:
and the colors came from the current Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers challenge:
where "One" is one color, aka: monochromatic. I chose the Hero Arts Pool family, since I just reorganized my UFO piles and found all sorts of pool parts. Here's my card, then I'll explain:
As part of the reorganization process, I rediscovered a few stamps I had out and then didn't use, so they got buried. I also had a pile of circles cut from the pool papers, so this card kinda came together all by itself. I struggled with what to do for the colored panel (heaven forbid I just put it on a white card base), until I figured out I also had a stash of Hero Arts Artist papers, and dug this piece out of the pool collection.
I became re-acquainted with a few other gems in the UFO piles, so I'm going back in to try a few more challenges.
Thanks for stopping by!
