Good morning everyone and a big thank you to everyone who played along with our last challenge! We'll be announcing the winner and Top 3 next week but today its time for a brand new challenge and this time around our theme is
so that gives you lots of scope, you can make a card or perhaps a gift or something to celebrate a special birthday.
As always we've got some lovely stash up for grabs for our lucky winner thanks to those lovely folk at Your Creativity Store (colours may vary)
As always those talented girlies on the DT have been creating loads of inspiration for you so lets have a look what they've been busy with this week
Doreen-I sponged my background with Chromium Oxide Green and Permanent Green then stamped my image with Versamark and sponged over again with Chromium Oxide Green.
I doodled around the image with a white pen and around the edge of the card with a black pen.
I then added the sentiment and ribbon.xxx
Anjie - I used the Postcard stamp set to creaet this card. I've stamped some things onto white card and some on the polka dot paper. I've given the edges of everything a distressed effect using a distressing tool and the Orange Extra Dark Pan Pastel. I used some of the stamps on the paper as well to make a different background.
Yvonne - I used torn paper for the coloured band across the middle to put in the colours of Panpastels. Before removing the torn paper I stamped in the butterflies. The top butterfly was stamped cut out and added to the card. Please pop over to my blog for more details.
Claire C I've made a card and little gift box using the Versamark and PanPastel technique, its so quick and easy its perfect for a quick make. the butterflies are from the gorgeous Postcard stamp set,, I've stamped them on acetate and then layered them on double sided adhesive before applying Blue Pearl PanPastel, they have a lovely shimmer in real life
