Challenge 13: Cherished Colour


Firstly, sorry so much for the delay in posting this! I’m back at work now and still in the process of moving apartments – oh excuses, excuses I know, I’m just being a bad blogger aren’t I? LOL! I PROMISE to be more organised from this day forward – honest!

I was overwhelmed with the amount of entries and stunning CAS cards for the last challenge – you all really captured the CAS style so well!

Well I hope you’re all ready for the next challenge?! This week there’s no excuse for not playing along because this week we want you to create a card using your favourite colour. This challenge should get your mojo going if you can indulge in your fave colour to start with!

Firstly my fave colour without a doubt is green! Some say I like it because I can turn into a green-eyed monster at times but I say I like it because it’s fresh and fun just like PTI’s Leaf Green *drool*!

Here’s my example (ignore the chaos in the background – I’ll explain later!):

Recipe: (All Papertrey Ink unless otherwise stated)
Stamps – On My Couch
Card – Kraft/New Leaf/Pure Poppy/Enchanted Evening
Ink – Memento Black/Fresh Snow

Other – Enchanted Evening Satin Ribbon/Circle Nestability/Vellum/£10 LOL!

Here’s Kate’s – using her all-time favourite and beloved Aqua Mist 😉 (No surprises there then Kate LOL!)

Recipe: (All Papertrey Ink unless otherwise stated)
Stamps – In Bloom
Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black
Card – Kraft/Vintage Cream
Ribbon – Vintage Cream
Other – Copic Markers/sewing machine/adhesive pearls/Martha Stewart border punch/corner rounder punch

Now here’s the deets, the challenge ends at 9am BST on Monday 21st September. An entry will be randomly selected to win a selection of PTI Cardstock, Designer Paper and Ribbon (The prize can only be shipped within Europe – sorry!) To enter for a chance to win or just to share your creativity (entries worldwide are welcome for just fun!), simply leave a comment with a link to your entry via a blog post or online gallery. To qualify all entries must use at least one PTI product!

I can’t wait to see all your favourite colours – how many more green fans are there out there?
