Team Challenge...

Hi all - Last week I had the enjoyment of setting a challenge for our team and this is what I gave them - Using Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Gold Embossing and a touch of Real Red, they were to make something using the packets as inspiration..... And be inspired they were!!!! Check out my team members blogs to see how we all 'interpreted' the colours. It truly amazes me how everyone 'sees' things and how so very, very different every card is.

I found the colours to be very 'rich' looking (must be 'cause of the yummy, very rich tasting coffee that was inside the pouches LOL) so I have gone for hopefully something very 'rich' looking in design. I also made a 'coffee pouch' (got the idea from
here - thanks Kylie - but made my pouch from scratch to fit the coffee packets in) After I finished, I didn't know if I liked the mainly black look so made a card as well to try with the Elegant Eggplant being the main colour. Trust me... It was extremely challenging!!!! LOL - WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!!!.... But in the end I was very pleased with the results.

Is it just me? Now-a-days just about everything I see I consider how it could be interpreted into a card layout / design / colour theme etc.....
