The Alley Way ~ Fun-gi


Today I am sharing with you a fun stamp set from a new company called The Alley Way (TAW).  The owner of the company Allison, also started the Free Digital Stamp site.  TAW is having its first challenge which is a color challenge inspired by a picture.  Since  I am a literal person, I was challenged to combine all the colors together one image, and I had fun doing so. :-)

Here's the inspiration picture and my creation...

I started out with the intention of making this a "masculine" card (I have a lot of male birthdays this month).  However, I think the pink might not work for my brothers. lol  Anyways, I wanted to make sure that I picked up all (or most) of the colors, but keep it simple.

These cards below where a couple I made because I enjoyed playing with this image.  The first card was the result of my first attempt of making a challenge card.  I liked that I combined two images (Fungi and Lady bug) and two sentiments ("Fun-gi" and "Sweet") to create the adorable little scene.

The last card was just me channeling my Purple Card Lady vibe. lol

Other Challenges:
Ribbon Carousel Challenge ~ Anything Goes!

Now get to creating...

Remember:  There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
