Quirky Crafts challenge. The Challenge is 'A Right Royal Affair' so you have to use Red, White and Blue and anything that reminds you of the Royal Wedding. We have two great sponsors this week (please check out the challenge blog for details) and I was lucky enough to be able to use images from each of them. I decided to make a Commemorative Tag using the technique of clear embossing with Tim Holtz distress inks...as I learnt this technique from one of his videos this tag is also being entered into the Simon Says Stamp and Show 'Tim Holtz technique' challenge. The cardboard I used to make the tag with is from a Mr Kipling cake box and the gold ribbon is recycled from a present I received a few years ago and therefore this tag fits with the Creative Card Crew and Tuesday Taggers 'recycle' themes. The tag also fits with Crafty Cardmakers 'Royal Wedding' and Spoon Full of Sugar 'celebrate something' challenges.
Less is More challenge of 'Off centre'. I originally made the card without the decoupage but it looked a little plain so I decided to decoupage the litte birds to make them 'pop' a little more. This card also fits with the Birthday themes from Stampavie and The Pixie Cottage. That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
