Two's Company - Daring Cardmakers DT Challenge

Happy Friday!

The Daring Cardmakers Challenge is set by Sharon this week and you have to use 2 colours - including the card base!  I decided to do something I do quite often to colour card, and that is to use chalk inks.  They colour smooth card so well and they were one of the first items I bought when I began crafting.  For this week's Challenge I used the ink to colour the base card, to stamp the sentiment and to highlight the edges of the punched flowers.


For the little flowers, I used the Fiskars Eglantine punch and after shaping the flowers I added liquid pearls in the centres and a little glitter glue - I could't resist a subtle hint of glitter!


I must admit I really enjoyed this Challenge, as I hadn't really worked with just 2 colours before.  I love colourful makes but it just shows you really don't need a multitude of colours to come up with a creation.  You'll find a lot more inspiration HERE on the Daring Cardmakers blog and I hope you'll join in!

Enjoy your weekend,
Shabneez
