I know that the colorway challenge is craft, ivory and red. I had a problem this week I created a fun card for my girlfiends birthday in just such colors, took pictures of it to put on my blog this week then gave the card to her yesterday. Last night I went to do my blog and my computer won't boot up, nothing is on the screen, I will be taking it to the computer doctor today. So I'm posting this card today It has ivory and craft but no red. This card was done using the new cameo stencil (LL 3017). I pasted the cameo using glossy black paste, while the paste was still wet I sprinkled in some MEtallic F/X amber glow and moonstone, just a little aroung the edges of the hair and collar. I distressed with Tim Holtz Distress ink after the design was dry, the color I used was Tea Dye. The paper I used in the background was Steam Punk by Grapic45 which I layered onto a light craft cardstock layer and then onto a black card. Now go to the sidebar with the links to the rest of the Dream Team and see what they have been upto this week and don't forget to come back next week.

This week is a free challenge for our dream team. I chose to use one of the new background stencils. The Houndstooth background stencil (LJ 913) I chose to use as both part of the background and also as the background on the fan. For the background I pasted with white glossy paste and sprinkled in Metallic F/X in Kiwi and Purple Satin. Then for the fan I rouged in the background houndstooth design in Eggplant (Adirondack Ink by Ranger)I also used the same color on the edge and spine for the fan. I used the Bamboo Stencil (LL 533) for the focal point on the design I rouged in Old Olive (Stampin UP) then I used Clear Embossing Ink and sprinkled the design with UTEE then heated the design with my heat gun. On a piece of Aubergine cardstock I pasted the chinese symbol for Sympathy (LS 53) in white glossy paste and used Metallic F/X Kiwi and Purple Satin. I layered the Aubergine rectangle on to olive green cardstock and cut the background with the chevron print to fit the rest of the card. I used green suede ribbon over the seam. I then cut out the fan and popped it off the card with mounting tape.Now that you have been to my blog, please check the blogs of the rest of the design team, I'm sure that you will great inspiration there as well and if you want to play along post to Mr Linky on the Dream It Up blog.

It's sketch challenge week, and I love do sketch challenges Not creating them but doing them. I believe that Deborah created this challenge. I love turquoise and teal type colors with green and so that is what I chose to use for this week. I used the morning glory crest stencil (LL 461) and the triangle weave background stencil( LJ 912). To do the morning glory I rouged in the following colors from Rangers Adirondack pads: Aqua, Pool and Stream starting with the lightest color, For the Leaves I used Stampin UP's Old Olive and then added some Stream in a couple of areas. I used Aqua to distress the edges of the circle. For the Background pieces I used Worldwin's Med Awesome Aqua cardstock and rouged in Adirondack Stream. The other two corners were printed cardstock from TPC Studios. After the color was in on the Morning Glory I pasted the image with Dreamweaver Translucent Paste.Please leave a comment on my blog and then go on over to see what the other team members have come up with this week. If you would like to play along go to the Dream It Up blog and link up to Mr. Linky and Let us see your creations. See you next Thursday and happy creating.
