Ted gave us a new challenge for August called "The Big Easy". He wanted us to create a one-layered card...NO ribbons, no glitter, no bling, etc. We could only use a base layer of cardstock and stamps/images and writing with markers, pencils, etc. When I read this challenge, I instantly knew what I wanted to do.
This was my first try at drawing a box on my card, which I've wanted to do for a long, long time and I need to work on it a little to get it even. But, I do like the finished look it gives!
After I stamped the images, I added a little bit of depth to flowers by shading with my shimmer chalks. It's hard to tell in the photo but I added a little bit to each flower and to some of the leaves.
I'm pretty sure that I followed the rules to the challenge, but I think that if I didn't that Ted of all people would understand, as he has laughed at himself several times lately over being "challenge" challenged! LOL!! Thanks Ted for hosting this fun challenge!
