ATS Wednesday Challenge



Hi there! It's time for another ATS Wednesday Challenge. This time it's a color challenge: Groovy Guava, Chocolate Chip, and Blue Bayou. I'm glad I'm getting some chances to play with these In Colors before they retire! I used BasicGrey Stella Ruby paper (what is with me and BasicGrey this week?) with my cardstock. The images are from the C.C. Designs set Layla and Virginia. I colored Layla with Copics, and I drew the ground line with my black SU! marker. I used my rectangle Nestabilities on the image panel and mat. To break up all the straight lines, I added some freestyle machine stitching to the top and bottom of the guava panel. I had some fun with the sentiment and matting -- I layered them off-center and added some piercing.

Stop by the All That Scraps Blog later today to see the rest of the DT samples for this challenge. If you want to play with us, use the keyword ATSDTC07 when uploading to SCS or the ATS Gallery. You can leave a link to your project on the ATS Blog, too! That way we all can see it! :)

Tomorrow begins the previews of the C.C. Designs July releases -- you won't want to miss it! I'm having way too much fun with Christine's stamps this month! :) Also, don't forget to stop by the MFT Forum at SCS tonight from 9-11 EST for the release party. I'll be posting my Ambassador Challenge, and I'd love for you to play! :)

Have a great day, everyone -- thanks for the visit! See you all tomorrow! :)
