New Challenge on SCS

Well, I got together (cybernetically, of course!) with my fellow LSC (Limited Supply Challenge) hostesses over on SCS and had a serious discussion about the LSC. We unanimously decided that its hey-day had come and gone and that it was time to shake things up!! As of today, the LSC has been RETIRED and a NEW fun challenge has taken its place - Free for All!!

The whole idea of this challenge embodies what Forest's mama always told him ... "Life is like a box of chocolates - you never know what you're gonna get!" Each Friday we plan to mix it up with something new ... a sketch challenge, a color challenge, a combo challenge (sketch/color, technique/inspiration) ... who KNOWS??? It's going to be a "Free for All" each and every Friday!! I am SOOO excited about this!!

Soooo ... to kick this off I started the first one off (F4A1!) with a challenge I called "Textures, Colors and Patterns" which basically means what it says ... to use textures (embossing, ribbons, 3D embellishements), colors (okay, well, I asked everyone to create something using at least ONE color that they typically avoid!), and patterns (an optional part of the challenge to incorporate some patterned paper). Pretty easy, eh?? The gallery is already starting to fill up with some pretty impressive stuff!!!

I NEVER use Gable Green, yet I have used this color combo TWICE in the last week!! What is UP with THAT????

Stamps: Good Friend
Paper: Gable Green, Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White
Ink: Bermuda Bay, Gable Green
Accessories: Tiny Bubbles Cuttlebug ef, Retro Diamonds Quickutz ef, Perfect Polka Dots SU ef, Beautiful Wings embosslits die, leaves sizzlits die, wide oval punch, whisper white satin/organza ribbon, pearls, pinking hearts border punch, paper distressing tool
