Today we are very excited to be introducing our first monthly challenge!
Each month we will be bringing you an inspiration photo based on a particular theme.
This month's theme is: From the Craft Room: Lime Lemonade
To get you started, I made a card based on this photo:
I used the Giraffe image from our Geometric Menagerie set, and embossed it in white on water color paper. Next I used Peerless water colors to add some yellow and green to the Giraffes. I trimmed them, and adhered them over a die cut circle. The leaves were doodled using a fine tip Gray marker, trimmed and adhered behind the circle. Since I made this card for a friend of mine who just had twin boys, I had to make a custom greeting using a Dymo label maker (I just realized that in my hurry I forgot the “o” in welcome! Good thing I can simply make another label :) ).
Make a card, a tag, a layout or any other project based on the inspiration photo above. You may use either the colors, the composition, the elements, the texture or any combination to create your project.
- Make a new project for each challenge and post it by 11:55 pm EST September 30
- Use at least one Altenew stamp
- Link back to Altenew September Challenge in your post
- When uploading your project, make sure to link to your entry post, not your entire blog
- You may enter as many times as you wish!
After the challenge closes, Three winners will be selected, and each will receive a $20 store credit at www.altenew.com. Winners will be announced at the beginning of the next month.
We can not wait to see where this month's inspiration takes you!
Fantastic!! I was so hoping you would start having challenges. I just have to ask, what date do you need to be linked by?? Maybe the last day of September?? Sorry, its been a long week and I just can’t find the end date (silly me!!). Thanks so much.
