Challenge ART to share....


I visited some challenge blogs today and managed to finish up 3 pieces of ART. It was fun to have a challenge to play with.


First up is an ATC I made for Theme Thursday . This week's theme was Purple. I used a shimmery purple vellum print for the background, a packing tape transfer image, plus some baby rick-rack, a postage stamp and a dimension sticker, "DREAM."




The second challenge I took on today was over at Tuesday Created by Hand. Again I made an ATC. This week's theme was "Your fave background." I LOVE backgrounds. I chose today to highlight a painted one. Basically you take watercolor paper, 3-4 colors of paint (I use Folk Art Metallics) and an old credit card. You put some blobs of paint on the edge of the card and swipe and swirl it around on the paper and let dry. Easy Peasy. Then you can cut them up into ATC blanks or whatever. I again used baby rick-rack, a copper embellishment doo-dad, a dimensional sticker, "TRUST' and one of my fave lady images.



My final challenge completed today was for the ABC Challenge . Today's theme: The letter "Z", which stands for ZERO embellishments. No brads, no ribbon, nada. I used the Reverse Iris Folding technique to make this card. I just love Regular and Reverse Iris Folding!!
Anwho, that's what I've been working on.....
