I often check out the Pals Paper Art challenges so I can be inspired by them. Sometimes they do color challenges and sometimes they do sketch challenges and ofttimes I see things that make me think I should try them, but I don't.
But then Susan of Simple Stampin told me I should just jump in and join the challenge. Well, she didn't tell *me* exactly; she told all her readers that it was easy peasy and we should try it out. She spelled out the guidelines nicely too. I needed to make a birthday card for someone so I thought I would use PPA186's challenge as a guide, which meant using these colors:
I actually have an Island Indigo marker and some paper so I could stamp in the designated color even though Susan said we didn't have to use Stampin' Up products (so I could have substituted a similar color). It was fun playing around. I miss using patterned paper though, so maybe I should hold out for their sketch challenges instead.
The Fine Print: Gold paper from stash, flowers by Prima, all other products Stampin' Up--"Bloomin' Marvelous," "Make a Wish," and "Best of Birthdays." Heavy meds or no, I can see it is time to recharge the batteries.
