TSG88 Odd Couples
It’s our first challenge of the New Year over at There She Goes, and Jessie, our Trendsetter of the week, has a wonderful one to jump start your mojo! Pull out your sets, and combine those that wouldn’t normally “go” together to create a new and innovative card. Let your creative juices flow to combine two or more sets…your options are limitless.
I have to admit... this one really had me thinking. I tried to get creative but I kept on going back to the same sets, Daily Grind and A Drink A Day. I've used two of the images from Daily Grind and the sentiment "Whether you think your glass is half or half full, it's time to ask for another refill". Cheesy I know... but they work so well together. I've watercolored the two images with my Tombow Markers and the layout is from Mojo Monday. I'm addicted to my Echo Park DP (I should be hoarding it but I can't). Love it!
To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes unconventional set combinations, and then goo back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Jan 10th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG88 so we can check out your beautiful work!
