VC Rocks Challenges
Here's the deal with this card. One challenge was to pick 3 colors, cut the cardstock in half and fold. One has a stamped background, one a stamped border and one has a cut border. Another challenge we had to pick 5 pieces of scrap cardstock and an embellishment for each scrap. Saturday we had to use the cut border cardstock, with 2 of the colored scraps/embellishments we chose and make a birthday card. Overall, I think it turned out okay. I really like turquoise and razzleberry together.
Stamps: Apothecary Art
CS: Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise, Rich Razzleberry, WW
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise
Misc.: Pear Pizzazz pleated ribbon, rhinestone jewels. edgelits, adorning accents, textured impressions embossing folders adorning accents
As a side note, I was delightfully surprised with the edgelits and the embossing folders. I had read that they were challenging and shifted but I think it went well. Knowing that they shift, I kept the pressure on the area.
