TSG167: Color Challenge

Monday, July 30, 2012

Happy Monday everyone!

We had a wet one here in New England, so I didn’t get to work in the garden like I had planned. Instead, I nursed a pulled calf muscle and stamped! My work had their annual BBQ on Friday and we usually play volleyball - I should add that I haven’t played volleyball (or any sport for that matter!) competitively for 4 years....and I didn’t warm up either! It left me in so much pain Friday night that I contemplated going to the emergency room….but I knew it wasn’t going to do any good. I was already using the R.I.C.E. method on it. I slept with my foot and calf elevated and it seemed to do the trick because at least I could get around by limping! lol On the bright side, I got a whole lot of stamping time in! :)

One of the cards I made was this one for this week's There She Goes challenge, which boss lady...I mean Jessie Rone has issue...lol! It's a color challenge and those colors are:

Not my usual go-to color combo, so I had to try a little harder on this one. But I guess that's why they call it a challenge! :)

I wanted to try something I've seen around blogland but haven't had the opportunity to try yet. It's a 3D do-hickey/whatsamacallsit/thingamajig/do-dad that you make with dies! Have you seen them around too? I have been facinated with them so when Jess showed us TSG's newest die set, Enjoy Life, I knew it was time to try one of them! I think this one turned out pretty good for my first try!

I used some scrap patterned paper for the ice cream part and some cork for the cone (after seeing Kim T. use it on her sneak peek last week). The sentiment is from the Freeze The Moment stamp set and I used TSG Trendsetter Alum, Iwona Palamountain's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #70. It's fantastic sketch, it's it? I was going to share how I made this 3D thingybob, but I think I'm going to save it for when I host next week's Wednesday Trends. I hope you can wait until then...if you haven't figured it out already! :)

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using this sketch, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (August 6th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
