This weeks DMC dare

This week at DCMs You are being Dared to make a card that is inspired by 'All Things Media'. The dare has been set by our Gillian:

It's around us no matter which way we turn, and all designed to get our attention. Ads designed by graphic designers who know all the tricks & techniques to draw our eyes to the product in question. You only have to glance at a Newspaper quickly to read headings with 'Shock' titles & 'Clever' puns all designed to make you want to read what the article is all about!
Maybe you have been inspired by an Ad in a magazine, the colours or design that has been used. Or incorporate actual magazines & newspapers onto your card; maybe chop up letters (ransom note style) to create the sentiment

So grab that latest edition of your favourite Mag, or pick up your newspaper, because there is so much inspiration there, Just waiting for you to discover!
Oh! and just one more thing - the name of everyone who makes a card for this week's Dare will be entered into a little draw and the winner will find some goodies winging their way to them with love from the DCM - Good Luck Everyone!


This was a good one Gillian and this is what I came up with, a Travel ad for Europe. Had fun with it! Hope you like it!!!
