Her instructions to us were simple and to the point, and they made me gulp!
I want to see some shockingly bright colours
- the clashier the better!
I spent a few days mulling it over, and trying to work out what on earth I could do - I often do this while I'm working on other projects, I suppose I'm sitting there surrounded by my stash and even while concentrating on what I'm doing the wheels are whirring (if slowly) into action for whatever is next on the list. Well, as I was looking through my papers for some other reason I came across more of my new(ish) Fancy Pants papers, this time from the Celebrations set.
Oh boy, are they bright!
Subdued is not the word for these babies - but they are perfect for this dare - it was just a case of not wimping out and adding in some neutrals to take away a bit of the ouch! factor of all that colour and brightness.
I managed to resist calming things down a bit and actually now that it's finished I quite like the result. All of the colours and patterns go together so well - clever peeps these paper designers, aren't they?
So, if you've already given your eyes a shock, make sure you put your sunnies on before you head off to the Daring Cardmakers blog this week!
It wouldn't be the same if I didn't have a sneak peek or two to finish off a message - so here are a couple more of that work-in-progress I mentioned a few days ago.
