Have you heard? Our new little PTI blog group has started issuing challenges. The first was from Lori and she challenged us to use a button or buttons! Becky Oehlers, a Papertrey Design Team recent alum, has started a new challenge on her blog linked to music, composing a card. I missed her first one but this one I made time to try. The rules are that you have to follow the cutting and color guidelines, the rest is up to you. This challenge was white on white, with five scored lines 1/4" apart and flowers. I like the five lines, they remind me of a music staff (wonder why!) so I punched out my flowers and have them cascading down the side along the lines.
I do have to mention this is the first time I've ever used a scoring tablet. I asked for one for Christmas and gave my family directions to the one I wanted and they bought it for me! It had remained in its package until now, I was too scared to score, but not any more! Thank you dear family for a lovely gift.
The last flower on the bottom right is pink to offset the pink (Hibiscus Burst) bird in the left hand corner of the tree, and if you notice the pink button in the top flower also is pink, to create a color triangle with the brightest color used to focus your eyes more in the center of the card, or at least that's my theory and I'm stickin' to it. Thanks Lori and Becky for great challenges. You can find Becky's blog here and our Papertrey Peeps blog here to look at other creations following these challenge. Thanks for looking!
