Emerging Colours - such fun!

Hi everyone!  Yes, I know, once again no blogging for a couple of days.  I must admit, I've been busy making cards & doing workshops, but also have found a new addiction - The Travel Game!   My competitive nature keeps me from walking away after just one game, so I tend to spend half an hour playing, when I really should be doing other things - like housework!!  If you've got half an hour to kill, you might want to check it out.  I love the Oceania one, 'cos it's the easiest.  My best score is 324,000, and IQ level is something like 112.  My computer is going so slow for the last couple of days, and it's doing my head in, so I can't wait the 30 minutes to see what my score is exactly, and I'm just guessing at my best Travel IQ, but hey, what's a bit of IQ between friends hey?

Everytime I've gone onto a new website, I have to wait for about 5-10 minutes for it to load, so of course I go off to make a coffee (and get something to eat), then get distracted, and hang out some washing, YES I DO HOUSEWORK SOMETIMES, and then come back, and forget what I was up to.  Not good.  I am not a patient woman, so this is definately character building.

Anyway, Sara from my SBS10 group (Hi Sara & thanks so much for stopping by) challenged us to make a card using the technique 'emerging colours'.  I hadn't tried this before, and I've had sooo much fun with it.  The hardest part was deciding which colours to use, but once I sorted that out, I loved it.  Here's the card I came up with.  I know it needs something else, but am just too tired to decide what right now, so will look again tomorrow - if you've got a suggestion, I'd love to hear it.

Emerging Colours 001

The stamp sets used were Bodacious Bouquet, and Headline Alphabet.  Card was Really Rust, Old Olive, Choc Chip & Close to Cocoa.  Inks were Old Olive, Summer Sun, Ruby Red & Chocolate Chip.

Thanks Sara - a great challenge!

Look out tomorrow for the Magic Card I made tonight also.  This is by far the hardest card, not helped by all the mistakes I made on it, but I've done it, and it can only get better from here huh?? Will upload that pic tomorrow though, as it didn't photograph well at all tonight.

Good night!
