Something Wicked....

Not really, I mean, I'm just not quite in a halloweeeny mood. But, I did participate in a WICKED challenge over at Splitcoast (on the demonstrator forums). This is a cool challenge...three in one in fact. JanTInk (view her amazing and hilarious blog here) is the featured designer this month. She set up three challenges which we could do one by one or all at once. Me, I did them all at once. I'm still a little iffy on how it turned out. But I had fun...that's what counts!

She choose a color combo challenge of Kiwi Kiss, Perfect Plum, Tangerine Tango and So Saffron. Can you identify all of them on mine?

The next challenge was to use the sketch I used to layout my card.

The final challenge was a technique called moonlighting. (Punch a circle and place it on the spot you want white. Sponge around).

This entire card started with these challenges. Then I had to let it stew for a while...I wasn't feeling halloweeeny yet as I said and the whole moon concept seemed, well, halloweeeny. I then thought of using Lovely as a Tree. Been there. Done that. I really wanted to use this new set that I got at Convention. But a moon and a butterfly? The naturalist in me wouldn't go for it. I had a great card made with a sun until I reread the challenge. So, I tried a moon and guess what, I like it! Inspiration comes from everywhere!

Off to get going on a busy day!
