View Full Version : Bright and Beautiful RRs looking for some imagination!

06-03-2008, 05:05 PM

Having had a look at my gallery I realise my cards display a lack of colour, which is very unusual as my natural tendency is towards bright colours.

So, me and the cat have just spent a very pleasant evening painting some textured backgrounds (think I did these a while ago for oil painting) and cutting up magazines to create some bright backgrounds for a RR……..

4 sets of 3 cards, to do with what you will! Just need to add some imagination!

Each is a set of 3 cards. I will send all 3 cards to player 2 who adds (the same or nearly the same) work to each of the cards and sends all three on to player 3. Player 3 adds the (the same or nearly the same) work to the cards, keeps one, and sends the remaining two back to me. I keep one and send the last one back to player 2.

Please note each card background is subtly different, those pesky advertisers just ain’t considerate enough for ATC makers, but this way we each end up with a slightly unique card.

Please indicate in the post your first and second preferences for sets.

Let’s see how this goes! First come first served. Hope some folks out there like their colours mixed….

Set 1: Purple, cerise background with yellow and green - FULL
Player 1. Bright-Spark
Player 2. Katilady
Player 3. xstitcher

Set 2: Lime green background with blue and pale purple - FULL
Player 1. Bright-Spark
Player 2. Rockstargirl
Player 3. Katilady

Set 3: Dark green background with black and white and blues and whites - FULL
Player 1. Bright-Spark
Player 2. Scrampersue
Player 3. Meow2000

Set 4: Lime green background with yellow and blue - FULL
Player 1. Bright-Spark
Player 2. kysunflower
Player 3. stormarela

Thanks for having a look.

06-09-2008, 11:19 PM
Thanks! I got inspired by a vintage ad for bullets! It came free with some stuff from b-muse.com Weirdest thing to be inspired by, lol!

06-10-2008, 01:08 AM
Katilady, they look great!

06-10-2008, 11:36 AM
I rec'd the JAM cards from you today...wow---you even included envelopes and address stickers!! I'll work on these later in the week :) (darker green)

06-11-2008, 12:03 AM
I received group 2's cards today. I didn't realize there was more than 1 texture on them...now I'm even more excited!

06-11-2008, 12:59 PM
Set 4 arrived and am working on them now.

06-11-2008, 02:14 PM
Thanks for the update, ladies.

I hope you are going to have fun!

06-13-2008, 12:14 AM
I forgot to scan what i did on mine before sealing the envelope up to meow2000, so I sent her a PM asking her to scan them when she gets them before she does her part!

06-16-2008, 06:41 PM
cards came today I'll work on in couple of days and send them back out :wubclub: I just had to work today hope like them :)

06-17-2008, 02:32 PM
I love them! I can't believe how these cards are turning out.

Thank you ScramperSue and Meow 2000.

I think I will have to get going on some more backgrounds to also send them off on a wonderful journey.

06-17-2008, 02:36 PM
another great team! be careful with those clock hands...they weren't meant to move.

06-19-2008, 03:45 AM
Group 4 has arrived here in Calgary, looking bright and beautiful! I'll work on them this weekend. The colours are great, and the moths look perfect. I'll have to think a bit about what to add....

06-21-2008, 02:16 AM
ok, I finally got some inspiration for them. They will be off to Katilady tomorrow.

06-23-2008, 07:27 PM

I received set one from Katilady today.

Now I will sleep on it and think on it for a couple of days to come up with something really good. Once they are ready I will let you know and mail 2 on to you.

06-24-2008, 04:13 AM
Ok, I had to open Katilady's envie to put something else inside....so I decided to scan them too. hehehe.

06-24-2008, 10:27 AM
Now that's cool Nicole!

06-24-2008, 12:41 PM
Nicole, that is looking good, and xstitcher you take your time! I am sure you will come up with something good.

06-24-2008, 02:15 PM
Finally, I have had a chance to finish the the bright moth cards! I will be mailing two of them off today. I hope my partners like what I have added!

Received cards from Rockstarsgirl today! Will work on them over the weekend then send them back to you Bright-Spark.

06-29-2008, 11:11 AM
Set 3 have arrived, and they are absolutely brilliant.

Thank you so much ScramperSue and Meow2000.

I will get in the post tomorrow to Susan

07-01-2008, 03:01 PM
Set 4 swooped in too! Moth looks lovely and bright. Great work kysunflower and stormarela.

I will get one in the post to you tomorrow kysunflower.

Thank you both for playing, hope you enjoyed.

07-01-2008, 03:55 PM
Set 1 if finished and ready to be sent back.

I am not able to make it to the post office until tomorrow, so I will post again when I get back to let you know for sure that they are on their way.

This was my 1st round robin and I must say it was interesting. It was a little harder than I thought it would be but I had fun and plan on joining in on some more soon.

Thanks for hosting it Bright-Spark!

07-02-2008, 05:46 PM
I made it to the post office this morning so the cards should be on therir way.

I hope they get there quickly.

07-02-2008, 08:58 PM
I am so looking forward to seeing what you did!

07-02-2008, 10:48 PM
I think RRs are a bit harder, but I think everyone puts in extra effort, and the results show that. My RR card collection is my favourite, each card shows how much thought went into it.

07-03-2008, 12:09 AM
I like them for the challenge they present:
1. Finding 3 things that match is always hard for me which is why you see oddball stuff on the cards I do.
2. Adding something that is cohesive and that you think someone else could work with.

07-07-2008, 07:00 PM
Set 2 arrived home too (also with a small detour!).

Look even better in real life. Card will be off to Rockstarsgirl in the morning.

Thank you to Rockstarsgirl and katilady for playing

07-07-2008, 07:17 PM
Can't wait to see them IRL. So glad you have nice neighbors that don't just keep the eye candy!

07-07-2008, 11:46 PM
They landed at your neighbors? Too funny!

07-07-2008, 11:55 PM
these are all coming out sooo great! this was a good RR :)

07-09-2008, 01:39 PM
Set 1 are home too!! Great stuff from katilady and xstitcher.

Thank you so much for playing.

Now, which one to keep? hmmmm
