When I initially read this challenge (see Nichole Heady's blog) I didn't think I would like it at all, but it turns out that I do! You were to cut nine 1 1/2" squares. They were all to be altered and then adherred to a 5" square card. My cardstock, Love die, and the upper left and lower right dies were from Papertrey. I think this will be my husband's Valentine card. It's good to make something that you think you will not like that turns out good!
For Day 4 challenge, you were to be inspired by a DT project. My inspiration was What the Doodle by Laurie Wilson. She watercolored around the edges of a stamp, and I wanted to try this. The stamp is from Friends Til the End. All items are from Papertrey except for the watercolor. I laid the stamp down on my paper to be sure I was painting the area around it. As you can see, a black mark was left--but I like it! Sometimes mistakes can be good.
Note that I have skipped challenge #2 for the moment! This challenge was called "Grab and Go". You had five minutes to grab items for a card--and you were required to use all items grabbed. I collected cardstock, Through the Trees stamp set, ribbon, and Wood Veneer Birds. All items used were from Papertrey except for the veneer birds.
I'll be playing along with Papertrey's Anniversary Challenges for the next few days. I LOVE this time! If you have never done so, head over to Nichole Heady's blog and check them out. Fun challenges with fantastic prizes! Day 1 challenge was to chosse among the color combos that were presented. I chose Kraft, Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, and Berry Sorbet. The stamp set that I used was PTI's Bitty Baby Blessings. I added a little water colors to my DP to bring in the color combo. All supplies used were Papertrey's except for the single sheet of designer paper.
