I am in the midst of creative turmoil ... too many ideas want to get out. Just when I thought it was safe, I did some Google Reader blurfing and found five more challenges I need to do, and one of them I needed to do RIGHT NOW.
This is what set me off: the current ColourQ challenge:
Yes, I know it contains (gah) pink, and I actually rolled right past it because of that. But then I saw the pattern on the bag, and I got an idea. Then I made this:
Yes, I saw the Hero Arts/Studio Calico Lattice background, and I saw it colored. I think I used Blushing Bride instead of Pink Pirouette, but it's still in the spirit of the challenge colors.
Then I decided I didn't like it, and I tried again:
This time I used some Distress markers for the orange and red, and Pink Pirouette for the pink. It's pretty much the same as the first one, except the embossed piece is a different shape. This was all I had the patience to color after a day at the salt mines.
Both of the cards are based on a sketch I printed on Sunday, but it has no reference on it, and I have too many blogs in my Reader to go through the challenge ones to find it. So all you sketch challenge blogs out there? PULEEZE add a watermark or something to your sketches so when we come back to them later we remember where we saw them. kthx
Now that I look at these cards, I am no longer in like with them, and I may need to try something else. BUT, it's out of my system, and I'm moving on.
Thanks for stopping by!
