Blogger Challenge, Week #14




Wow! We've been doing this for 14 weeks already? Amazing!

This week we were to use spectrum pads on our cards. At first I didn't think I had any, but lo and behold in my closet stash I found 4 of them...hardly ever used and probably none of them even current any more, even more shocking...I just looked up the one I used and it's in the catty!

I did 2 different cards as my idea started one way and then as I was doing it, I came up with something else in my head so I did 2 of them. On the one card I did a starburst type of coloring with a sponge. I punched out one size circle and dabbed the color on and then covered it up with the circle I punched, punched a larger size, dabbed the color on and then covered it up with the circle I punched, etc. until I got all the colors from the spectrum pad on there. The purple is the hardest to see.

Both cards use almost the same materials.

Stamp Sets: Happy Harmony, Jolies Fleurs from Lizzie Anne Designs
Cardstock: Glossy White, Pink Passion, Green Galore, Brilliant Blue, Basic BlackInks: Pink Passion, Only Orange, Lovely Lilac, Brilliant Blue, Green Galore, Black Staz-on and Celebration Spectrum pad
Accessories: Marvy Mega Punches, Black brads, black ribbon (non-SU), photo corner punch, 1 1/4" square punch
Make sure to check out the blogs of the other's participating in this challenge on the right hand side of my blog.
ETA: The paperclip is just holding my card together as it's a tri-fold card that just wouldn't photograph right and the colors didn't scan well at all.

Great cards Kim, Isn't it funny how you can start out with one idea and come up with something totally different. I like that you did both ideas. The circle medallion is my favorite! Ida
