I love watching cooking shows where they give the chefs limited ingredients and free rein to create something delicious. I recently discovered a similar challenge for card makers, and it inspired me to join in.
The TGIF Challenge is inspired by the show Chopped: you have a pantry of items you can pull from (white paper, black ink, adhesive, doily, white bakers twine, sponges, etc), and then a limited list of items that you can use on your project.
These are the ‘basket’ items to choose from this time.
In this case, I don’t have either stamp set so I chose the Typset DSP, Pool Party ink, Hello Honey Ink, and Black card stock from the ‘basket’ to make the anniversary card. See more TGIF Challenge entries at TGIF Challenges
I used the Pool Party ink to sponge all the large round medallion shapes on the background paper, and to sponge the doily flower. I then used the Hello Honey ink to sponge just the small diamond medallion shapes. It makes for a subtle card with the ’61’ and ‘years’ cut out of the patterned paper. Finally I made a bakers twine pom pom to finish off the flower.
