Two Challenge Tuesday

I've been gone for the past week so today's cards we made quickly - something which many people appreciate at this hectic time of year.  The first card is for the color challenge at CAS Colours & Sketches.  We were challenged to take any challenge from 2019 and turn it into a seasonal card.  A sketch challenge would have been simple but I like trying unconventional colors for seasonal cards.
The colors I picked were from challenge 328 on July 2, 2019 - Flirty Flamingo, Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam.  The bear in this set just seemed joyful to me and working with a polar bear image makes coloring go rather quickly (all  you need are shadows!)  The sky is a Petal Pink patterned paper and the scarf and trees are colored with Flirty Flamingo and Soft Sea Foam Stampin' Blends.

My second card is for the color challenge at Splitcoaststampers this week where I am the hostess.  I had every good intention of doing an intricately colored card but life just got in the way.  So I decided on die cuts which I colored with the ink and sponge daubers.  I think it came out nicely although it was not at all what I had planned.  That is what I like about die cuts - they add so much but don't necessarily take a lot of time!
I hope you will be able to join us this week for one or both of the challenges!

  1. These are lovely cards Jeanne but especially the first with those non-traditional colours. It certainly doesn't look like a quick card with its gorgeous stitched details, pretty sky and beautifully coloured bear and trees! Vicky x
