I did it!!

Today I have made my last card for Jackie's Pantone Colour Challenge. The deadline is tomorrow so I have just managed it. The final colour I had to do was Monaco blue and I have been thinking all week about this and have struggled. Inspiration was still escaping me this afternoon so I decided to browse a few of my favourite challenges. And it finally happened........3 challenges all seem to speak to me and off I went and created this card (the photo is not so great but the dark nights are drawing in and I didn't want to wait until tomorrow to share this with you......sorry I was just excited I had finally cracked the last colour!!)

Now the 3 challenges that inspired me:

  • Runway Inspired-I took my inspiration from the netting and the blue pattern on the dress-I just reversed the colours. And added a tag of silver/white mesh to represent the netting.
  • Festive Friday-I have been following this challenge and my favourite blogger and cousin Lynn enters regularly and I have been wanting to join in but this is the first time I have! The challenge is Silver, White and Blue. My medallion is actually heat embossed with silver snow white embossing powder that does sparkle a bit more IRL.



So, Jackie...........I have done it! And if you still haven't joined in the fun to win a custom designed blog header for you or a friend then check out the details here. You don't have to do all 10 colours, you can do just one as the it is a random draw.

Enjoy the rest of your day my crafting chums x

  3. Soon as I saw Monaco Blue I thought of that RIC picture, Sandie, ... you've interpreted it so brilliantly ... that touch of silver/white organza is inspired! Well done you doing all 10 of Jackie's colours ... I haven't got to a single one! Anita :)

    Oh, the base card I used on my TT card is a linen one ... got it from Handy Hippo (we had friends over from the UK so I had it delivered to them and they brought it). It's 300gsm and divine!

  4. Whoo hoo you rocked out ALL of the Pantone color challenges my friend! That's awesome!!! I have to tell you it was a ton of fun challenging myself and my friends. When I finally got through all of the colors it felt great.

    It's so cool how all 3 challenges go so well together and they all inspired you to make such a pretty card. The embossing is very elegant and regal looking.
