I'm Sponsoring...The Outlawz Challenge Blog

http://outlawzchallenges.ning.com/group/monday-greetings
Oh goodness me.  I forgot to post about my latest sponsorship that started on Monday April 13th.  At least I remembered before it was too late! 

Once again I am honoured to be sponsoring the latest challenge over at the Outlawz Challenge Blog.  It has been a busy few weeks of sponsorship but this will be the last one until late in the summer which will allow me time to create some new sets. 

While you do have to sign in over at Outlawz, it is free to be a member and there is a different challenge every day of the week to keep you busy.  Every Monday it is the Greeting Cards Challenge.  That is the one that I am sponsoring this week.  The rules of the challenge are that your project must have a greeting/sentiment on the outside.  The theme this week is April Showers and/or RainbowsThe weekly winner is announced at the beginning of the following week and the prizes are awarded monthly.
 
This particular challenge had me a bit stumped simply because I didn't know which direction to take my designs in.  I didn't know if team members would like a set geared solely to rainy days with a few rainbow items thrown in or if they would want to stick with the theme of rainbows.  Then I wasn't sure if they would want literal rainbows or just the colours of the rainbow.  My goodness it was a difficult decision for me.  Finally I decided to go in all three directions but given the time frame just put together the paper sets.  Hopefully, in the future I'll be able to expand on each of the sets and add other elements.  


First up I created 12 patterned Papers for my Rainy Days kit...


Then I worked on a set that had some realistic rainbows in them and called it Chasing Rainbows.  This set has six patterned papers with scenes of rainbows on them...


...and then six textured papers.  These particular textured papers have all the colours of the rainbow in them but each paper has a different texture.  Unfortunately, it is a bit difficult to see in the preview but I laid it out horizontally instead of the usual vertical so that you can see the colours of each paper.  There are three in the top half of the preview and three in the bottom.  I've used a shadow to help distinguish between papers...


Finally I put together a set soley based on the colours of the rainbow.  This set is aptly called Colours of the Rainbow.  There are 12 patterned papers and 12 textured in this set.  The patterned papers have different geometrical designs--everything from chevrons and stripes to argyle and stars and lots in between.  Once again, each of these papers have all the colours of the rainbow in them.  As I did in the above set, I also laid these ones out horizontally.  This way you can see the colours of each paper along with a snippet of the design.  In this set, there are six in the top half of the preview and six in the bottom with a shadow added to help distinguish between papers...


The coordinating set of textured papers are all solids, each a different colour of the rainbow...


All of these sets will be offered up as prizes for the winner.  If anyone is interested in purchasing one of these sets, please let me know and I'll get it uploaded to the store. 

I hope that you'll consider playing along in their challenge.  To help provide some incentive, I am offering up one of the patterned papers from the Colours of the Rainbow kit as a freebie.

Thanks ladies. You are all welcome.

Sherry: I'm not sure if you'll be back but I wanted to let you know that I'll work on getting the sets uploaded to the store. Unfortunately, your email is a 'no-reply' and your Google + wouldn't let me see any of your blog posts so I can't find you to tell you this personally! I'll post about it once they are in the store.
