My attempt at a Dawn McVey.....


.....not entirely satisfied with how it turned out, but I'm keeping it real here and putting up a couple of cards that maybe aren't my best work.

I was going for this look (a CASE of the fabulous Dawn McVey's work) but wanted to use the colours set down by Makeesha in her challenge: Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Whisper White and Ruby Red. I'm not entirely sure I pulled it off. I think I will try this technique again with different colours.

The first card I did I was OK with until I realised I had used Kiwi Kiss (not in the colour challenge), so I scrounged through my leftover cardstock and came up with this for Makeesha.
Unfortunately I was too late! Keesh's challenge has closed! Nevermind. Make sure to check out the winner's gorgeous card - maybe I can get the next challenge done on time!

Let me know what you think. Love it? Hate it?
