It was my turn to choose a Daring Cardmakers dare today and apparently my choices can be scary! Hope this one is not too challenging.
Gotta Wear Shades
This week your challenge is to be Bright! Clashy is good, hot colours are good, anything super duper bright is good too. If you want to double dare then why not use the sketch that Vanessa made for her marvellous mid week dare?
Actually it was fairly straightforward for me as I love bright colours. My choice of card began with the buttonNow it is hard to get the scale or the true brightness of the button here. I won it at the Capture the Magic stall at Alexandra Palace. It is at least 2" across and a really vivid plastic orange. I think the shiny glare got to the camera! So i had to find papers to match. I picked out these American Crafts papers as they have lovely bright patterns on one side and the colour on the back matches perfectly. While I was reaching for them I knocked something off my desk which turned out to be some blue bling Bazzill flowers which I thought just set the button off. A bit of doodling helped to tone the button down slightly. A wielding of my black and white pens later and 'tis done. The sentiment was hand written - a little wider than I normally do and I like it. Expect to see more writing like this!
I will visit all the blogs that link to DCM, but it may take a few days as I have oodles to do. Weekends as often happens, are times of work, work, work for me!
Have a good weekend
