I think I'm definitely addicted to challenges. I feel lost without them. When I first started my cardmaking journey, I spent hours and hours scouring Splitcoast Stampers for ideas, but I pretty much CASED everything I saw. (And I saw some beautiful stuff). But then I decided to try my hand at making my own cards. Looking back, it was a very scary decision to make because I had no idea if I actually had any ideas of my own!
Turns out I did, and although I don't love everything I create, I keep plugging away at it. And I'm extremely grateful for all the wonderful card-makers out there that inspire me with their sketch challenges and color challenges. Not to mention all the card-makers out there that participate in the challenges. The creativity that I see never ceases to amaze me!
That being said, today I've decided to make a card using the very challenging Just Add Ink color challenge which I paired with the equally challenging Waltzingmouse sketch challenge.
Sometimes a clean and simple layout is not so simple after all! I almost started out making a wine bottle tag, but then decided to make a card using one of my favorite layouts. And what about those colors? Never, in my wildest dreams would I have imagined putting elegant eggplant with the other colors, but it works!
