My laptop is still broken, so computer time is quite limited at the moment. I really should be in bed by now (it’s 12:45 am UK time) but I got a little carried away playing with the lovely Steampunk CD from Sarah Hurley and then I remembered I wanted to blog my card for this weeks Critter Sketch Challenge otherwise I probably wont get another chance until late tomorrow afternoon when my Little One is having his afternoon nap.
The theme this week over at Critter Sketch Challenge is:
Now it’s plural so you need to use more than one, but they can form the focal point of your project or like me they can be an embellishment.
I’m still stash busting my way through all the unused patterned paper pads I have and these are from the Fancy Pants Summers End 6x6 pad. Sometimes I colour an image first other times (like this) I pick the papers first and colour the image to match. I fell in love with the zingy colours in this pad immediately so coloured up this cute little fairy from Digi Stamp Boutique to match. I have used a scalloped nestie to cut a mat fro the image but the large scalloped border was created using plain punched circles cut in half and layered up. I have also used some Core’dinations card, some flat back pearls, gems and cute teeny tiny little buttons from Papermania. The sentiment was written on my Dymo Label Maker and seemed perfect for the image.
Don’t forget to stop by Critter Sketch Challenge and see what the rest of the DT have made.
I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
- Crafty Calendar Challenge – Spring Clean (I’m stash busting all my patterned papers)
- Stampalot Challenge – Inspiration Challenge (I took inspiration from Brenda’s colours and the fancy card shapes inspired my scalloped border)
- Allsorts – Spread your wings
- One Stop Craft Challenge – Button It
- Sparkle Forum Challenge – Things with Wings
Bye for now
