Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Is everyone ready for a new challenge to help kick start your creative week? Well, I am! Today's challenge is all about thinking out of the box and using shapes in different ways in your card designs! So often, we take a main image, trim it up, mat it and then add our doo-dads to create personality. What if the front of the card showcased a bit of shape personality? That's what this week's challenge is all about!
HOW TO PLAY: To play along, just get a little creative with shapes on your card. Make your card base a different shape, use shapes for your main panel or just accent with little die-cut shapes. This week's challenge is REALLY open to interpretation folks! Once you are done with your creation, don't forget to link it up using the linky below. Every entry is one shot at winning a $25 code to the Power Poppy Shop!
On to my creation!
I didn't get a chance to make all of them into cards yet! So, bear with me, you might be seeing baby cards for while! HA! This one is using Power Poppy's Precious Baby stamp set. It's the perfect set to have on hand for this occasion because it has three vignettes all with a baby theme.
When I started coloring the main image on my card, I saw bubbles of color. No idea why, I just had that idea rolling around in my head! So, I colored up my image in greens and blues and then started to scour my patterned paper stash, looking for the right shades of blue and green. And... viola! I took different sizes of circle punches and just started layering it all up in a staggered design. After I was done, I thought it needed more, so I added the sentiment bubble and the little heart. On the sentiment, I added a little light blue Copic (BG0000) around the outside to help it to pop, added rhinestones and ta da!
Okay, sweet stamping friends, now it's your turn! Let's see you Shape Up and create with shapes as the main focus! Each entry gets you a chance at winning a little shopping trip with $25 to spend in the Power Poppy Shop! So... what are you waiting for? Let's see you get those fingers inky!
Until next time!
