WOYWW again! My desk this week is in the midst of scrapbooking so there are scraps of papers, my cutting mat, craft knife, ruler, double sided tape and my trusty mug of tea all present on my desk. The rest of the scraps of paper, the ones I have decided not to use, have been swept into a pile and dumped on the floor until I finish the layout!
Less is More challenge for this week, which is to use colours of your flag (red, white and blue). My original entry had a little bit of green on so I decided to enter again with a true red, white and blue card! This also fits the DCM 'poppies' and Kaboodle Doodles 'primary colours' challenges.
Creative Scrappers sketch. For the background I used a sizzix die to cut out the leaf shape which I used as a mask for the distress ink shabby shutters, I then used the inverse to make a stencil which I used twice with pine needles distress ink. For the leaf in the corner I used the stamp from this months crafty stamper, stamped using pine needles and embossed with clear embossing powder and then used a paintbrush to pain shabby shutters over the top. I hand drew stitches round the letters and the central panel. This layout is therefore being entered into CCC 'sew mad', crafty cardmakers spotlight 'stencils', Simon says stamp and show 'Tim Holtz technique' and The crazy challenge 'embossing' challenges. That is all from me...now it is time to clear up that pile of papers! Have a nice rest of the week.
