A Card and a Challenge

Wow! I can't believe it's Wednesday already. This week has just flown by as well as the summer. Summer Card Camp 2 is almost over as well. It's been a few days since I posted any homework. Ok...five days...but I've found this week's sketches and color scheme really difficult for me. Typically the ideas start in right away and I can't wait to get started. Not so much.

I finally sat down today determined to conquer my creative block. I actually really like the colors, it's the sketches I struggled with. The color scheme we were given was two shades of brown, two shades of purple and an aqua color. I chose the last of three sketches which as you can see on the card, follow on the diagonal. For the three circles under the sentiment I decided to do flowers. I actually learned this stamping technique in another online card class while back and love it still.

I took Jennifer McGuire's advice and tried to use small amounts of the colors that I was having difficulty working in and I think it turned out ok. What do you think?

Simple copic coloring and a white gel pen and we are back in business...I hope.

Hope everyone else out there is having a great time with this week's challenge. It's definitely taught me to think outside of my comfort zone and still have fun. 

Happy Stamping!


  1. What a cute it! Everything is just perfect!

  2. I understand the creative block dilemma...struggled with it myself the first part of the week with the new colors & sketches. Your card looks great, though. So glad you broke through!
