1. Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge
This is the latest inspiration photo Kim has posted on the Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge blog. I really like the blue stripes on the clock, so at first, focused particularly on that. After a nasty first attempt involving watercolour paper, distress inks and a stippling brush (ugh), I went with strips of blue cardstock for the background panel. The maritime theme lent itself to the little fish from the set Birthday Buddies. They are coloured with Twinkling H2Os for some shimmer... you can almost see it on the main guy in the photo!
2. CAS-ual Fridays CFC #41: Jest for the Pun of it
I can enjoy a good pun, so I knew the latest CAS-ual Fridays challenge might be for me. There are a few layers on the card, but overall, I think the design is still clean and simple. And the sentiment is a fine pun, isn't it? :P
3. Moxie Fab World: The Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge
The Cure for the Winter Blues Challenge is inspired by the amount of navy blue seen at the recent Craft and Hobby Association (CHA) winter show. And yes, I will admit, navy is not overly prominent on this card, but after looking at some of the inspiration and other entries, I think I can sneak it in. ☺
I'll be back on Wednesday with a so-not-me card for the newest Crafty Creations Challenge!
