The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to create a project using a word that represents what you hope for the new year.
Instead of a resolution, choose a word that describes what you hope for the new year.
maybe it's LOVE if you want to work on your relationships, or DO if you want to challenge yourself to something, or LAUGH if you want to lighten up, etc.
Use that word as the inspiration for your card, and keep it Clean And Simple
Have you guessed what my word is? Thought so. So why hello? It's about communicating. Keeping in touch with those you already know, saying hello to new people you'll meet through the year, and saying hello to new opportunities.
Coincidentally, the challenge at Little Tangles is Saying Hello ;)
I tend to buy inks a couple at a time, but today I went a bit mad and bought ten. As I was playing with them on my desk, making pretty patterns with them, my card design suddenly came to me. I would do ombré. Or rainbow. Or maybe combo. Ombrow?
If the labels actually matched the ink colours, it might have been more ombré than rainbow. (Starting at New Sprout, I used them in order anti-clockwise.)
The square blue sequin is part of my winnings from years ago for runner up in a cardmaker of the year competition. There were a couple of tubes of large Gutterman sequins - these square ones and some large purple flat ones. I could never foresee a use for them in my card making, and even tried to sell them twice, but no takers. But the blue one was just the right size to cover up a mark on the card panel.
Because I've used new inks I'm entering it into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, something new.
Sequins: blue - Gutterman; others - Neat & Tangled
