WCMD 2018 | Lucky 7 Limit Challenge with Shay

Hello lovelies!

You've made it to our last challenge for WCMD 2018 and I hope you are having a splendid time.

I have a different challenge for you which I am calling the Lucky 7 Limit Challenge.  What is you may be wondering.  Let me explain.  If you choose to take on this challenge you will be limited to a total of 7 colors (yellow would count as 1 color even if you have several shades), layers, products/supplies (patterned paper, embossing powder, stamp sets, stencils, dies, etc.) and embellishments.  For instance you could choose to create a 1 layer card with 3 products  (2 stamp sets + 1 embellishment like enamel dots) and 3 colors.  Tools (like a die cutting machine, MISTI, ink blending tool, water, adhesive), inks, cardstock and neutral colors (white, grey, brown and even black) are freebies and do not count towards your 7.  I have a couple of examples for you.

Card No. 1

So for a really simple card that really has no problem meeting this challenge I give you this little number:

1 layer + 2 colors + 1 stamp set = 4!

This card uses In Bloom: Ashlee's Posies with Lydia Evans stamp set along with 2 colors of Catherine Pooler Inks: flirty fuchsia and grass skirt stamped on a white cardstock base.  Sometimes it doesn't take much to have a pretty card.


Card No. 2

Now, I have another card that does stretch the bounds of this challenge:

2 layers + 2 colors (blue & green) + paint + die cut + glittery thicker = 7!

This is a super easy card where I used the solid star from True Multifaceted Star Cutaways to create a star pattern on a piece of a cardstock and then with ink painted around the stars and then painted in the stars with white paint and I also painted on some glimmery paint over the blue and green (I am going to count the 2 paints as a single item: paint lol).  Then I adhered the panel to a white A2 piece of cardstock and finished it with a glittery "1" Thicker.


I can't wait to see your take on this challenge!

Prize: One randomly chosen project that is linked up will win $50.00 gift credit to the w&w shop.  **Remember for rules about the challenges to read up HERE.**
