This week's challenge is a sketch which has been designed by Mandy. It's a really nice one to work with so hopefully you'll all enjoy it.
We are in need of replenishing our numbers on the design team and have decided this challenge would be a good way of picking some. If you are interested in being on our Design Team just put DT after your name in the linky thing. We'll visit all the blogs and decide after the challenge is ended.
To give you an idea of what's involved, you need to:
- submit a card for each challenge (once a fortnight)
- comment on challenge entries on a rota (2 out of every 10)
- host/devise a challenge on a rota (approx two a year)
This challenge is sponsored by Letraset and the prize up for grabs is a 12 pack of Promarkers.
ProMarkers are made by Letraset and are a twin tipped, dye based alcohol marker offering a high quality product at a great price. Avilable in 148 colours, they give incredible tonal range and can be applied to a diverse range of materials, not just paper and card. ProMarkers produce vivid, bright colours right through to the subtlest pastel shades - the translucent inks can also be overlaid and blended, even further extending the range of shades and hues on offer. ProMarker's quality nibs and inks provide flawless colour lay down with consistent coverage and no unsightly streaking.
Finally let's have some ideas from our Design Team
And the rules:
1. Your card must be for a man/boy
2. It must follow the theme/sketch set
3. It must be a new card for our challenge.
The challenge will close at 12 Midnight (GMT) on 27th March 2011. Leave your name and a direct link to your project (not just your blog) in the link tool below. If the link tool is not there for some reason, then please leave details in the comments and I'll add you in before I do the draw.
I'll take a part in this challenge! Like it) Wait for my card;)ReplyDelete

Making cards for boys / men is a challenge - but a nice one. You get the chance to use some other colors and decorations than usual (read: pink and light colors). It provides an outlet for the "mess" with paint, crackle paint and so on :)ReplyDelete
I like the inspiration from the DT. God work!
I cannot get my link into the challenge via the linky thing:
