Grab your paint-brushes, crafty friends! And your tissues.
It's Triple-Threat week at the Dynamic Duos--THREE colours to play with.
You may also have noticed the auspicious number of this challenge: #100.
Lesley Croghan and Anne-Marie Hile have decided to close the challenge blog, and this will be our last post :(
Anticipating that sad event may be why I had a little trouble getting geared up for my project this week... I didn't have any cardstock or paper close to Pool Party/aqua in my stash, so I had to improvise. I've signed up for the next Online Card Class: Watercolour for Card Makers. The pre-class homework includes getting in some practice dabbling with different media. So I tried some watered-down dye-ink, colouring in a stamped and heat-embossed image.and came up with this card.
Wasn't totally satisfied, so I tried again, this time CASEing a design by Laurie Schmidlin.
I stamped the dress-form three times, in Archival ink, then swabbed some diluted dye ink over top, in the three challenge colours.
Laurie had given each of her dresses a cute accessory. I decided to go all out with just one of them, adding a gathered tulle skirt, resin flower and of course, PEARLS. That led naturally to the sentiment...
Please go leave some love for each of my fellow DT team-mates. They'll need the virtual hugs...
AND we really hope all our Dynamic Duos fans will join us for our final challenge! I double-dog-dare you to link up your project!
Finally, a HUGE thank-you to Anne-Marie and Lesley for believing in me and my teamies. We've had an inspiring six months!
