Dottie's World Challenge.



This week's challenge over at Dottie's World was set be Lou and I struggled intially. I take challenges quite literally and it took me a while to decide exactly what to do with this one! LOL

" INSPIRATION! - Do you remember some time ago Juliet set a photo inspiration challenge using a photo of some cupcakes? Well everybody loved that - including myself so I've decided to do it again.........I want you to make a card or other crafty project using one of the Charmed downloads, taking inspiration from the picture below. You might want to use some or just one of the colours, you might be inspired by the swirls or even the see through nature of it, it's up to you! I can't wait to see what you come up with....."
Now eventually I selected a few bold colours, those being the green, orange and cerise then tried to go with a twirly, curly, dreamy effect. Now I am not sure that actually came across BUT I so loved working with the bold colours. Also I cannot remember many cards..or any at all where I haven't backed the image onto a more plain background......but I quite liked the effect of this one.
Sorry, colours are awful, will TRY to tkae more pics today now lighting is better, the sun has just manged to break through! Happy Sunday!
Go over and see how the rest of the Design Team have interpreted the challenge and have a go yourself- would love to see what you all come up with.
