I like sketch challenges (not too crazy!) followed by color combo challenges. I'd also love to see a challenge where you gave us the info on how to do a project and then challenged us to do our own version---or even enhance the project!

Tami said...

I love both sketch and color challenges!

MindyYoung said...

My favorite type of challenge would be a sketch or color. Something to inspire me!

Jenny said...

I really like to play inspiration challenges. I did one once where the idea was to use a wedding cake as your inspiration. There were so many beautiful cakes to chose from, and they made some wonderful looking cards with those inspirations!

Sketch and color challenges are what I need. Love sketch challenges that give measurements too.

Thanks Lisa for the heads up about this new challenge site. I like to mix it up--one week a sketch, the next a technique, maybe a color challenge, maybe an embellishment challenge. I also like a card category challenge--like a masculine birthday card or a wedding card. As you can tell I love them all.

Janice M said...

Melanie, you have done an awesome job with this blog! Wonderful! My favorite challenge is color! Love to stretch the palette! I would love to be a follower but Blogger won't let me! They have made my followers and those of blogs I visit invisible. I can't sign on to be a follower on anyone's blog. But I still love what you have done here! Blessings to you!

Gayle said...

Sketch challenges are my favorite and by reading it sound like it is for most people. I look forward to seeing challenges that you come up with for us. I am now a follower of your blog. I adore BLOGS!!! Thanks for offering blog candy, too. Ribbon...probably my favorite embellishment!!!

Thanks,

Melina said...

My favorite challenges have to be inspiration and element. I love seeing all the different things people come up with from looking at the same inspiration 'something' that I did. I also love getting asked to use this and/or that somewhere on my project and when it's finished thinking "Why didn't I think to use those things together on my project before?"
I can't wait to see the things the Design team come up with. I'm adding this blog to my sidebar.

Hi DT,

I love projects like Easter baskets, little boxes,... where we get a tutorial and then get the opportunity to make one of our own.
I also love special card like flowerpot cards, staircase cards, triangle cards,...

I'm so curious for your first challenge, good luck ;-)

Greetings,

Lins

I like theme challenges. It allows me to interpret the theme in the way that I want. I usually follow a sketch, but I try to incorporate as many challenges into a card as possible.
