I do hope you are enjoying a weekend of fantastic weather, just as we are lucky enough to have here?
Our lovely Estelle has set the challenge over at The Crafty Pad this week, and her chosen theme is
We want to see you use up your 'scraps' and leftovers from previous projects, and tell us about what you used in your post.
Here's what I came up with:
Firstly, I must thank Helen (Crafty MamaMia) whose card for the special month-long BCA challenge inspired me to make this.
My image is called Umbrella - whimsy 2 from The Stamping Boutique, who are one of the 2 sponsors we have for this week's challenge. I coloured with Promarkers and added some blue gems and Glamour Dust.
For the base card, I used a piece of A4 card in my 'don't throw...you never know' box, that had a section already cut from it, and managed to draw around a tea-plate to get the main shape! The papers I've added are scraps from previous projects, from Nitwits. The piece of cheesecloth behind the image was one i had previously cut for a project but it was too small, so I inked it with a TH Distress pad and staped it to the card. The piece of lace was one I had also cut but not used previously.
The sentiment is one I actually use quite a lot, printed onto a scrap piece of paper. The flowers were punched from the leftover DP and the swirl was another leftover from a previous project. I made some posh pins which are positioned to help 'balance' the card and some heart-shaped gems to finish.
Our other sponsor this week is Lili of The Valley!
Be sure to pop over to the challenge blog and check out what the DT have created with the images!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
- Fussy & Fancy #71 - Fabric of our Lives. (I have added cheesecloth behind my image.)
- Digital Tuesday #176 - Shaped Cards.
- My Mum's Craft Shop #73 - Anything Goes.
- Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes.
Hope you will join us!
