Awesomely Artistic Challenge

I know that I have been challenging my self a bit more creatively lately but todays challenge took the cake! Not only working with a sketch from Mojo Monday, a Colour challenge from Fab Friday but I also wanted to use a stamp set I haven't used before. Yes I know crazy right? But sometimes being a bit crazy leads to good things. Here are the challenges - 



And here is the card that I came up with - 

This card was WAY out of my comfort zone.


I'm really happy with it!  The elements that I enjoyed was using the splatters or as I have heard from a reputable source - Fly Poo. I did this in Lost Lagoon and stamped off to not overwhelm. I added the leaves in Mossy Meadow.


The sentiment is from the Happy Happenings Set. I love the Paper Stacks! Having paper in every colour is so useful when making a card like this for colour challenges. You know right away that the colours are going to match perfectly. The Mojo Monday Sketch by Julee Tilman was great inspiration for me and I made a few twists and interpretations of my own.


Here are the colours I used thanks to the Fab Friday colour challenge and I NEVER would have tried them, so thanks for pushing me Fab Friday.

Thanks so much for coming by and make sure you head over to Mojo Monday and Fab Friday Challenge blogs to see what the design teams made and also to be inspired by everyone who plays along. You might even decide to play along yourself!

UPDATE 8th August 2015:

I was awarded for this card as a Fab Friday Fav! Very exciting! Thanks for pinning and for your support.

  3. Well, babe, gotta tell you - I LIKE you out of your comfort zone, lol! Great job! I find color challenges in general difficult, too, but you really rose above it all! The spattering is just right, and I love the popped-up dragonfly! My fave details... I think I'm going to have to break down and get the new stacks, too, sigh... Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
