Wet and windy July weekend!
Quirky Challenge, which was set this week by Cazzy. She titled this challenge 'Very puzzling' and the aim is that we had to do something to do with puzzles, real jigsaw puzzle pieces, or punched or die cut ones, or even inchie puzzles. I didn't have any puzzle pieces or anything to make some so went to the local charity shop where I bought a 500 piece puzzle for 49p! I then set about altering a couple of the pieces. I started with painting using acrylic paint and then stamped over the top of the paint.
Paperplay 'things with wings', Pixie dust 'girlie' (well to me fairies are a girlie image), Paper Cutz 'things found in the sky', and Sew many card 'glitter/sparkle' challenges.
Less Is More challenge first thing yesterday morning. Now I don't have any circle stamps or punches so this was a challenge for me... in the end I used three different sized pen lids to stamp with! I used versacolour inks (rose red, burgandy, green and evergreen) and stamped down a masked off strip on the left hand side of my card, added red and green gems and then a sentiment on the other side to create the final effect. I have to confess that this was my third attempt at a circle card...the others ended up in the bin! I am also entering this card into the CTT 'circles' and stamp something 'Christmas in July' challenges.
Sketchy Thursday sketch. This layout didn't need any journalling as the title 'Tell a story please Great Gran' says it all! This also fits with Scrap and Stamp 'buttons', Scrapfit 'birds' and SIWAS 'every little thing she does is magic' (I used the phrase 'tell a story' from the song). That is all from me for now. Have a great week everyone.
