What challenges you the most?

Do you have a favourite pack/sheet of patterned paper that you simply look at, think about using, and then put away again untouched because you just can't bring yourself to cut it up? I'm sure that this is a situation that a lot of paper crafters are familiar with, me included.

This month I challenged my team to take the plunge and cut up a sheet of their favourite designer series paper from the 2017 catalogue.

I have two favourites - Delightful Daisy and Petal Garden. For the challenge I opted to use the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper (DSP).

CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 232

Cathy has a colour challenge for us this week.

For some this reason the colour combination caused me some difficulties and there were quite a few attempts left to one side before I had something that I was happy with.

This card features the stunning rose from the Graceful Garden stamp set.

Watercolour Pencil Fun

At classes this weekend we have been having fun with the new Watercolor Pencils. If you haven't got them and tried them yet, they are an absolute must have and so much fun.

I will admit that before trying these out I was not one for spending lots of time colouring in images. But, colouring has proved to be a great stress reliever and addictive, and I really enjoyed myself while making the samples for class.

I had prepared four projects for the classes but I'm only going to share two of them here.

CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 231

This week it's time for a sketch and this is the one that Cathy came up with for us to play with.

I took a bit of artistic license with mine, and placed the oval slightly further down the card. I'm hoping Cathy doesn't mind.
