Aus-NZ Challenges, Big Shot, Challenges, Swaps

Aus-NZ Challenge – January

Since moving to Australia in 2008 – my sister, Nadine and I have been running a little Monthly Challenge between us….although last year we got a little side tracked and is kinda flopped a wee bit.  Also while living here I have done Card/Project Challenges with my friend Kim too. 

This year we have decided to get together and do a monthly Challenge.  So what we have to do is make one thing (but two of them) and then give them to each other.  Therefore mine go to Kim & Nadine and I receive back one from each of them. 

The January Challenge was to make Cards/projects using one colour (or one and a neutral really) so a Monochromatic project.  I have now received their cards.  We all used different colours….. here they are.

Nadine used Blue (my fav colour)…..She used the Beautiful Wings Big Shot Die that I sent her for her Birthday and my most used Stamp Set Baroque Motif.  The glitter on this card is stunning and Nadine has used tiny little beads on wire for the middle of the Butterflies and antenna.

Kim used Purple (another awesome colour)………..Butterflies were also the feature.  Kim used a great technique of including the large Butterfly in the Big Shot Embossing.  It’s really effective and I will have to give this a go.  Perhaps you can see what I mean by seeing the 2nd pic?  I love the Sentiment Kim has used too.

I did Green…………..and I too used the Big Shot to do some Embossing.  My inspiration for this card actually came from Joan Jeffery, who had made a great Mustard one for the Just Add Ink # 51 Challenge.  I loved the card Joan did so this is my version of it.

I was thinking of going with Butterflies too…..but changed my mind at the last-minute and used the Felt Flowers.
