DCM – Gotta Wear Shades

There’s not much that puts the wind up me but I have to say that Lythan’s dare for the Daring Cardmakers this week is very, very scary indeed.

This week your challenge is to be
Bright!Clashy is good, hot colours are good, anything super duper bright is good too.
If you want to double dare then why not use the sketch that Vanessa made for her marvellous mid week dare?

I brought my papers a couple of week back, knowing what Lythan had in store for us but although Lavender and Turquoise happen to be my favorite colours, the patterns on the papers are way, way out of my comfort zone. Still, not to be beaten I’ve given it my best shot and this is that I’ve come up with.

In your face, or what?

I started by covering the base card with one of the papers and adding some doodling to the lines in the pattern to make them stand out. Then I got a bit carried away and added some small circles and dots as well.

The flowers were cut from another of the papers in the collection and I’ve stamped and glittered parts of them before attaching them to the card with 3D foam.

Groovy card - it has a real 60's look about it with those flowers you added. Love the effect of the doodling too.

The colour combo of the papers works just fab! A gorgeous card and fab doodling! :)

Great card Sue. Love these colours, but I'm not sure I would have had the nerve to pull this card off the way you have. You've done a brilliant job.

Love the flowers especially
