I participated in my first craft challenge. Fab Friday challenged us to use three strong colors in one:
which was daunting for me, as I have been focussing too much on 2-color cards, and on classic pastel / light colors. Furthermore, I had only one hour to complete this as I had promised my husband I would squeeze in an episode of True Detective between putting the toddler down, making the challenge and going to bed (I need to be in bed by 10,30, yawn!).
Using something strong was fun, I added in Rich Razzleberry to give some relief to the Blackberry Bliss, and although you cannot see it too well, those are pearls on the centers of the flowers and down the middle of the butterfly.

- Envelope liners thinlits dies
- All Abloom DSP (retired! Try Farmers Market for similar colors)
I am so glad I entered this challenge – it really made me try something new, and I am pleased as punch (yup, little bit of a pun intended) with the output. Definitely going to try more challenges!
As ever, if you don’t want to make it, you can always pick it up from my Etsy store.
