Scrap Matrix DT - 7 Dot's Cards

Hello, I hope you are all enjoying this months challenge and seeing all the DT's projects. I am back again to share my second project using 7 Dot's. I have to say I am enjoying creating projects using the 7 Dot's collection 'Writers Block' even though it definately isn't in my confront zone of creating with those colours but what would it be if it wasn't a challenge right?

For my second project using the 'Writers Block' collection I have created two cards.

I had a lot of fun layering different pieces while starting with a base on the card with some patterned paper from the collection.

Within my layers on my cards I used the same 4 elements, a tag from the collection, a Prima flower, Finnabair by Prima wood veneer cog and gears and a metal flower. I wanted to add a bit of colour to the colours. As I am sure you all know the colours in this collection don't in to me so I got out my Tim Holtz Distress Ink in the colour Lilac. I than coloured the wooden gears and cogs with the distress ink as well as going around the outside of the card.

And to finish the cards off I added a little sentiment using Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Stickers.

I really love how these cards turned out and that I was able to get outside of my creative confront zone and create with something I defiantly wouldn't use, but that's the point of the challenge hey?
I hope you are all enjoying this months challenge and I am loving seeing everyone's entries over on the Scrap Matrix Shares Facebook group.
