So let your imagination soar, and get out all of the embellishments you've been saving.. you know, those things you 'need' when you are shopping at the craft store.

Mo's Digital Challenge 2

This weeks challenge is to use colors that remind you of Fall and to use only 2 embellishments. Your image does not have to be a Fall image, although it can, just use colors that remind you of Fall. The limited embellishments will make sure that Mo's fabulous image is the main focal point of the card.

There have been some questions about embellishments so I will try to explain what I consider embellishments. They are anything you can hold in your hand; flowers (no matter how many), ribbon, gems (no matter how many), stickers, each of these counts as one embellishment. Now punched corners/borders or stitching are not considered embellishments as they are part of the card rather than an add-on. I hope this clears it up.

Challenge #1

As you can see from our fabulous blog header, Bella and Bronte are busy making cards and we want to join them. Since Peggy, our team leader, is under the weather, we are going to do a very simple first challenge.

Of course, you all know that "Perple" is Bella and Bronte's favorite color. So, our challenge is to make a card using the color purple but you must use a Mo Manning image on your creation. Use as much or as little purple as you like, it just has to have purple!

Don't have a Mo's image? You can join one of the groups listed on the sidebar for some free images or hop over to Mo's store and pick out your favorite.
And as an added bonus, that person will not only win a new, never been seen image but get the honor of naming the image as well. So get those purple colors out and get inky. Be sure to check out all the great inspiration from our design team.

The challenge will end on Monday, October 12th. The winner will be determined by Random.org. Please add your name and a link to your card on the Mr Linky at the bottom of this post to be entered to win.
