First Challenge

I did my first sketch challenge from Splitcoaststampers this week....and my first upload on that site as well. And boy, did I find it challenging. It took me most of the morning to make this card and most of the evening to upload the card.

I tried using two pieces of designer paper but it just didn't seem to look that great. So I decided to stamp on the Old Olive card stock instead. The piece of dp that I did use is a little darker in real life. I also sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip ink.

It isn't my favorite card that I've made but I thought I'd post my first challenge on my new blog :)

Stamps: In the Spotlight, Baroque Motifs
Paper: Brocade Backgrounds Designer Paper, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Old Olive
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Rose Red, Old Olive

Andrea, Congrats on making your first challenge card on SCS and posting it there.
It only gets easier! And watch yourself. Those challenges are addictive.
I love participating. They help me to get out of my comfort zone. Otherwise you would only see cards with Chocolate chip as main color from me.
Welcome to the blogging world. And now that you got your feet wet, try my weekend sketch challenge!

Happy Labor Day weekend. Hugs and smiles
