First Challenge Entry 2014 - DCM Colour Challenge.

Hello and Welcome to my cardmaking blog.

Trying to stay true to my promise to get more crafting done this year, I decide to start back at the beginning and get back into some of my favourite challenges.

I have also been trying my hand at designing my own blog background using photoshopped-images from photos take in the summer.  It is a work in progress as I keep learning new stuff and changing my mind. So please  bear with me until I get the hang of this new skill and finally decide what I am going to do with the background.

So back to the cardmaking.
My first entry for 2014 is the  Daring Card Makers  colour challenge which started last Friday 7th Feb. Great colour combo and I like the fresh cool blues mixing with the ward orange and yellow.

I opted for the orange and yellow colour scheme with  a blue/gray striped washi-tape strip to tie in with the photo. Courtsesy of a great tutorial from Jennifer McGuire   I made the 'chevrons' from patterned paper from my stash and finished the card with a chevrons style orange ribbon and an orange button threaded with a deep blue organza ribbon.

The sentiments are from the Stamps of Life.

I have been sticking to digital scrapbooking for the last year or so simply because all my kit was in storage and then it took a while to get my craft space sorted. But things are looking up and I am finding homes for all my stuff and looking forward to getting my mojo back. Need to sort out my lighting and make a new light-box for photos, but I'm getting there.

Hope you enjoyed your visit and don't forget to leave me a comment.  Your time and comments are always appreciated.
