I’m sorry to be so late with the results. With the distraction of Monday’s post, I have to admit that I completely forgot about it until I was lying in my bed this morning! So here goes…
Thank you to everyone who submitted a card to the November Kraft Challenge! I just loved this challenge theme – the cards were so beautiful. What really struck me was the beautiful coloring – many of you colored on the kraft for this challenge. You can see all the entries here.
Here are a few highlights for the month…
First, I really like the way Connie colored this card – very simple yet effective:
Notice the shading details – the palm trees, the stockings… and see how she added just a little bit of color to the sand and water. Not overdone at all – just perfect.
The coloring on this next card by Sherry really blew me away:
Look at the shading on the cow’s left leg – it’s white in the front and shadowed toward the side. That’s Sherry – not the stamp. Next look at the shadow from the front left leg on the scarf. And then, of course, the shadow on the ground. Fantastic.
There’s something about cows this month. I also loved this next card by Sarah:
The bandana paper is so cute, and I like how she added those cans to the kraft in white ink for the background. Nice job!
Andrea created candy canes out of circles and they look a little psychedelic:
I’ve never seen this done before – very clever! I also like how she used the ribbon in two places on the card. It makes the card look very cohesive.
Finally, this stunner by mojo3386:
Of course the coloring is amazing, but my favorite part about the card is that there isn’t a dark contrast. I always feel the need to add black or brown to a card – but this card shows that you don’t need it – not even for the sentiment. The card is gorgeous.
Thank you again to everyone who submitted a card. And sorry for the delay!
