Papertrey Peeps Challenge #4

PeggySue issued this latest challenge. "Choose a card or project Nichole made from one of the last two releases and using a set NOT from that release, make a similar card." This one was difficult for me. I've been working on it a little at a time over the last ten days or so.

Here's the card made by Nichole that I choose:



And here is the one I made:



This was an excellent exercise for me as I am not good at stamping directly on the card as Nichole had done. My sentiment is a little crooked, the leaves aren't in the position I would have liked, and the coloring, although the Copics are the same as she used,looks very different. Thanks PeggySue!

Supplies: all PTI unless stated otherwise
Cardstock: Kraft, white
Stamps: Delightful Dahlias, Big & Bold Wishes
Ink: Fresh Snow, Chai
Other: Marvy white gel pen (filing this one under don't use again)

Hope you liked it. If you're not a Peep, why not join us in the challenges. I've found them to be lots of fun and a way to work outside my usual comfort zone.

Thanks for dropping by.

Linda- I have a hard time stamping directly too. I think you did a great job! I may have to join in one of these challenges to stretch myself more. Thanks for the invite! :)

So pretty! I love how the flower looks on the craft. I am doing something similar for the challenge. Just haven't finished my coloring yet. Keep having other chores to do first.

Cammie said...

WOW!!!! Linda, this is gorgeous! The shading of the dahlia is beautiful. And honestly, I can't tell the sentiment is crooked. You are much too critical of yourself.

Rhonda said...

Linda, I love your coloring. Only you will notice the little things you wish you had done differently. Have a blessed Easter.

Aimes said...

A gorgeous CASE - your colouring ROCKS! I too get a little scared stamping directly onto the card but I never noticed that your sentiment was crooked - it looks fine!
Happy Easter!
