Simply Betty Challenges - No1


Over at Simply Betty Challenges it is their first week up an running and it is a photo inspiration challenge.  Kinda found this one really hard to do as I like black, grey and red haha (very exciting person I am).  But with the help of my little girl she pointed me in the right direction with the colours I kinda got it done ha.

The reason Betty doesn't have her cat is I messed it up big time and decided to put a charm cat instead (immortalised).  I tried to make this as colourful as was humanly possible (overboard or what!).  I tried to colour her hair to match the photo but I'm not sure it came out to well.  I'm still learning when it comes to cardmaking so give me a break! haha no really still a bit shoddy no matter how I try hehe.  I know the pic is really dull and doesn't show the proper colour either but it is pitch black here and this is the only time I get to take a pic so will have to get hubby to set up some sort of lightbox or something.

Anyway that's enough of my rants for one millenium.

Oh goodness Andrea, why oh why do you bemoan your cards........silly woman.......they are fab, I love everything about it, especially the colouring, now that is innovative to say the least and the little cat charm is great. So stop moaning and accept the praise. Have a great weekend. Hugs Annette x

Oh my Andrea. Someone is way out of their comfort zone huh? Well, you did a fabulous job with a little help. Reminds me of Punky Brewster or Rainbow Brite.
It makes me smile in a good way.
Thanks for rising to the first challenge at Simply Betty.

Andrea!! You did AWESOME!! Don't ya just love that new crackle punch?!! Looks great here! You definitely did better then I did with the colorful part. I got the pattern but just couldn't do "colorful". So glad you could be our very first challenge card at SBS challenge blog. Thanks for joining us!! Hope to see you again!! HUGS!

Angela said...

Andrea I think you did an awesome job on this. You can do colorful. It was a hard challenge for me too. So my Princess Chloe ended up with the most colorful dress I have ever seen. I'm so glad you played along with us!! Great work. I really love reading your post you have such a sense of humor. And there is nothing wrong with your card making!! Hey if you makes you feel better at least you can draw and create pieces of art, most of us don't have that talent. Well I know I don't unless stick people count!!lol!!! I can draw them but that is about as far as it goes!! Thanks again for joining us in our 1st SBS Challenge.

I, too, had a hard time with this challenge! You coloring is awesome and totally reflects betty's socks! How sweet of you to let your daughter assist you in the color choices. Tell her she did a fab job!
Good luck to you on voting day!
