TSG 131

Saw a great challenge over at the TSG blog and I had to share it with everyone. They are calling for people to make a set of 5 quick and easy cards. These totally fit the bill.

What I love about this set of cards is that they each took only about 10 minutes, but they look great. We did them in a stamp a stack group and everyone's turned out a little differently. I'm not normally not particularly confident with the whole concept of random stamping a background. This time it didn't faze me because when I think about snowflakes and snowstorms, they ARE random.

Here's the whole set:

And here are close ups of the 4 that are obscured by the front card.

This one could hae used a little more bling, and maye a few more snowflakes...

I almost feel like this one has too much bling on it...

I think this one is my favorite
Or maybe this one...



I'm generally pretty pleased with the whole set, though. I wasn't sure about the text-y dsp initially, but I liked it in the end. And for once I loved the fact that SU Classic Black ink tends ot come out looking purple. It reminded me of the colour of the sky late at night.
