Two for One

Lots to Do was perfect for me this week as I've been trying to use up bits & pieces. This anniversary card's made entirely from Valentine leftovers. Even the base card is made from two half cards glued together -one white & one red!

Beryl did a sketch as Rainbow Lady's GD. I wanted something "different" & aimed for an Andy Warhol/pop art look. I think I succeeded in that, but don't like the card! I'll definitely use the sketch again tho for something less modern.

Jumped to your blog from comments you left on mine, thank you. Love your red & white card, it's sensational but I have to admit, like you, I'm not sure about the 2nd one. I appreciate the work you have put into it and you have achieved your 'Andy Warhol' goal but not something I'd make usually either. Well done for trying a different design - that's what the challenges are all about! x

Hi Sammie-Jay thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog xx What I love about you is you are not afraid to be creative and expressive at the same time, I think it is brilliant, me - I am too afraid to think outside the box at the moment and play safe, but I will try and be more adventurous xx

Beryl said...

Hi Sammie Jay,
Well I think your sketch card is great. It's very different and that's the whole idea - just to see how many ways one sketch can be interpreted. Thanks for taking part.
Beryl xx

Firstly what a fab card and how clever to create it from two. The sketch looks wonderful too, love the colour combo you've used, goes really well xxxx

LuLu said...

Brilliant cards. Love how you create your "red & white" card. Very clever. Have to say that my favourite is the card you made for the "Lots to Do" challenge. I love it. The colours and composition are just right. Well done you.
