Weekend at home!
Quirky Crafts and it was my turn to set the challenge which this time round is Clean & Simple (my favourite style!). I was given two images and two sentiments by our sponsor, Digital Delights, to work with. For the first of my entries I made a scrapbook layout. I love using CAS for scrapbook pages as it really makes the photos stand out. I used the Sketchy Thursdays sketch for this one and instead of using any patterned paper, I used a paint brush to stipple blue distress ink (broken china and faded jeans) onto parts of the card. I then used a wave stamp (I don't know the make as I got it when I was 12!), some Pirate stickers, Presley the pirate (by Digital Delights) and You're a treasure (Digital Delights) coloured using promarkers to add a little bit of interest. I finished it off with Alphabet stickers, and the dotted line to 'X' marks the spot. The wavy line is to symbolise the dodgy steering of my 4 year old pirate! I am entering this LO into DCM 'water' and DYSU 'a splash of blue'.
Quirky Crafts challenge I was given Bongo the Dog and the Sentiment from Digital Delights. I chose to make this very clean and simple card using nestabilities, embossed round the edges and a bit of doodling in the corners. I am entering this one into stamp, scrap & doodle 'embossing', and CCCB '4 legged friend' challenges.
Less is More challenge, which this week is a favourite of mine - silhouettes! I used the free silhuoette stamp from a past edition of Craft Stamper magazine and layered it on yellow and black card. I wish I had a scalloped rectangle or square nestability or similar, but don't so had to use my scalloped scissors (not quite as neat in the corners sadly!). I will be sending this card to my very elegant 92 year old Great Aunt. I am also entering this card into Crazy4Challenges 'Black, white + one other', OCC 'photo challenge' and Speedy the cat's friends 'black, white + one other' challenges. That is all from me for now. I hope you all have a great week.
