As night follows day, at As You See It Challenge a colour challenge always follows a sketch. It was fantastic to see so many great takes on my sketch in the gallery. Let's see what you all make of this colour challenge, given to us by team member Heather Heroldt.

Fun on Wheels for AYSI 303
I found this combination a little bit - well - challenging! No idea seemed to jump out at me as demanding the use of these colours. While looking through my 'not yet tried out' shelf, I came upon the Fun on Wheels bundle and the idea of a pair of brightly coloured cycles came to mind. So this is another 'First Date' card!
As you see in the product picture, the dies let you build up a bicycle in different stages and colours. I think there's some future fun to have there! Keeping in mind the challenge colours, I made the base from Gray Granite, the wheels from Crumb Cake and the frames in Poppy Parade and Tahitian Tide.
I took the map stamp and covered over the Poppy Parade card front with it, using Poppy Parade ink for a subtle do-it-yourself DSP background.
For the white embossed panel, I wanted to create the idea of a roadway. So after measuring out how much room I needed to fit the bikes, I scored a line top and bottom with my Paper Trimmer. Then I used the Cross Hatch folder from the Basics 3D Embossing Folder pack (from the On Line Exclusives) and embossed each side of the line in two passes of the Stampin' Cut and Emboss machine. Quite effective, don't you think?
