Anyway, this week it's Rein's turn to set the challenge and she's come up with an intereting one. Rein simply said:When I saw the challenge I was a bit stumped, I couldn't think of anything froggy or fishy that I could use, then I remembered some papers I bought a few weeks back in a sale. So I thought that maybe I could use this dare to make one of those dreaded "Man" cards - unfortunately I don't know any fishing-mad chaps to send this to, but I can put it into the box Hubby has on his office desk. It's just a quick and simple card - not only am I running to catch up, but my mojo has gone walkabout too. The papers are Creative Imaginations, "Old Guys Rule". When they arrived I thought I'd made a mistake buying them as the designs on some are a bit too big for cards, but this meant that I didn't mind chopping into them to just get the useful bits - better than consigning them to the "hide behind the cupboard and pretend I never bought them" section, eh!
"I want to see a fish or a frog on your cards"then left the rest up to us.
Couldn't find any nice dark blue brads in my stash so had to revert to the stick-paper-on-cereal-packet-and-use-the-centre-of-a-Cuttlebug-flower to cut some faux ones. I've added a layer of Glossy Accents to the dark parts of the big fish, but I just couldn't get it to show up on a photo.
Since I finished this, I've remembered the BG Clour Me Silly paper with the frogs design on. Maybe I could have made a little froggy with the Robo to go with that. I do have some kids cards to make so might even have a go at doing something like that.
There are some fab cards on the Daring Cardmakers blog this week, this is such a fun challenge and I hope it'll inspire loads and loads of people to make froggy and fishy cards for us to come and see!
