Color Challenge attempt....
One of my goals for the new year is to attempt to challenge myself with card making and actually sending out those cards. The first thing I thought I could do was a color challenge on SCS. I was excited because it used my three favorite colors: red, black, and white. However, I have now realized how challenging it is when you are given colors and no direction! I am not extremely pleased with the card, but I supposed that is part of being an artist. I was in a bit of a rush, and you can tell--some of my stamping is not lined up and looks messy. But, I am happy that I did something, allowed myself to be creative, and completed the challenge.
One big thing I realized though is even with a ton of Stampin' Up! stuff that I have, I don't think I have enough. Guess I will just have to buy some more!
