Use Three Colours

 Hello and welcome to our May Challenge!

Before I tell you about today's new challenge, I would like to introduce you to three new Design Team members:

Beata

and 

Veronica

and 

Lisa

It's great to have them with us!

Now back to today's new challenge and our theme, chosen by Patricia, is:

USE THREE COLOURS

This could be on your card background or on your image or both.

Our sponsor for this challenge is the wonderful:


Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant, currently working on 2 design teams and an obsessive crafter and creator of cards. I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky. I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours. I love anything arty. I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember. In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings. I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers. I had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I could gel with. 


In January 2016 a challenge team I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey. I've a Facebook group SheepSki Designs where I hold challenges, some for fun to win digis as well as my monthly card challenge. I've a SheepSki Designs challenge blog as well. Things are growing slowly (thankfully) so I still manage to spend at least a little time with my hubby. Welcome to my world Andrea xx


And the prize on offer for the winner is - 3 images of their choice 

And now here is some inspiration from the Design Team:



Christine using 'Ginger Hot Tub'


Dawn using 'Ginger Hot Tub'


Janice using 'Ginger Hot Tub'


Lisa using 'Ginger Hot Tub'

Christmas Presents and A Design Team Call

Hello and welcome to our March challenge!

A big thank you to everyone who joined us for our last challenge.  We have changed the date for publishing our winner/top 3 post to a week from the date the challenge finishes so come back on Friday 11 March for that. 

We are continuing with our Design Team Call for another month so here are all the details:

DESIGN TEAM CALL

Here's what you need to know:

1. You need to have a blog and a Facebook account - our DT group is on Facebook.

2. You will be making one card for each monthly challenge and most of the time you will be using an image from one of our sponsors so you must be comfortable using digi stamps.

3. Everyone takes it in turn to host challenges - picking a theme, choosing the sponsor images to work with and then choosing the top 3 card once the challenge has finished.

4. You will need to comment on the challenge entries each month - this will be either one or two number in ten depending on how many team members we have.

5. You must be a team player and willing to share your cards each month to promote our sponsors and the challenge.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please e-mail me at: winterwonderlandchallenge@yahoo.com and tell me a bit about yourself and give me a link to your blog.

The Design Team call will run until the end of this challenge.

So now back to today's new challenge and our theme chosen by Dawn is:

CHRISTMAS PRESENTS

And here's a bit about All Dressed Up:

Hi, my names Wendy, founder of All Dressed Up. I live in Nottingham UK with my husband and two children (my inspiration behind the characters) - in particular, my daughter who has kept me up-to-date with trends and all things digital.

 Day to day, I work as a textile designer working traditionally within children's wear, fashion and interiors. Although my work is mostly digital, my work process remains hand-drawn which I hope comes across in my artwork.

All Dressed Up was created in 2013 as a place to share my digital stamps which back then was a whole new challenge for me. Since, Ive been lucky to have discovered a whole creative community and welcomed the All Dressed Up design team who have been amazing to work with. Through our online community and Instagram, the team keep me on my toes to keep on drawing, creating and inspiring. My favorite thing is seeing how my characters are continually given brand new personalities!

On our Facebook and Instagram page we host regular tutorials, challenges (and freebies!) and is the real heart of our community. The stamps are available from the All Dressed Up Etsy shop which is continually updated on a monthly basis with lots of limited edition and seasonal stamps available in particular.

The All Dressed Up community is a friendly bunch (if I do say so myself!) and we would love for you to get involved, see your work and for you to share your stamping tips too! Do get in contact and be sure to visit our Facebook and Instagram pages to see what were creating at the moment.

And here is some inspiration from our wonderful Design Team:













Wonderful inspiration - thank you ladies!

Now it's your turn to join in.

Link up your entries using the linky tool below remembering to link your post not your whole blog and most importantly it's Christmas creations only please!

Our challenge will close on 3 March and we'll be back on Friday 4 March with our new challenge.
